Buck Island

Excursions

A few miles off the north eastern shore of St Croix lies the tiny paradise of Buck Island, one of the best excursions in the Virgin Islands. The entire island and its surrounding coral reefs is a protected nature reserve and includes a beautiful beach, an incredible coral marine garden, and two major underwater snorkelling trails with signs that introduce snorkellers to the types of coral and its sea life. Turtle Bay Trail and East End Trail together have become one of the most popular attractions in the US Virgin Islands. There is also some excellent diving off Buck Island Reef.
