On the island's breezy North Shore, Cane Bay does not always have gentle waters, but there are seldom many people around, and the scuba diving and snorkeling are wondrous. You can see elkhorn and brain corals, and less than 200 yards out is the drop-off called Cane Bay Wall. Cane Bay can be an all-day destination: you can rent kayaks and snorkeling and scuba gear at water-sports shops across the road, and a couple of casual restaurants beckon when the sun gets too hot.
Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; swimming.
Rte. 80, about 4 miles (6 km) west of Salt River, Cane Bay, St. Croix, ., U.S. Virgin Islands
