Million Dollar Views from beachfront room!
Posted Mar 10, 2017
Amazing and unobstructed Million Dollar Views of the beautiful Pelican Cove with waves rolling in over the Long reef. Private and quiet, this is a perfect relaxing getaway. Swim barefoot from the sandy beach, or snorkel the adjacent coral reef where many colorful fish can be found among the sea grasses and coral. Children or non swimmers can safely shallow snorkel with water shoes right at the shoreline of the reef. We spent several days with the whole beach to ourselves but for an occasional pelican that entertained us while diving for his dinner. The restaurant on the beach is conveniently open all day as is the bar. The staff is friendly and respectful. The owner enjoys meeting his guests and treated us to a special night snorkel where we saw squid, blue pencil fish, and I actually held a small reef octopus in my hand, the highlight of our trip there! The owner also snapped some wonderful underwater photos for us, too! We wish we could have stayed longer!
If you go to St. Croix, you must make a trip to the National Treasure, Buck Island, only a short boat ride away from Christiansted and a quick five dollar cab ride there from the Palms. The Snorkeling is phenomenal and Turtle Beach is a lovely sandy beach with beautiful Caribbean blue water.
