ABOUT ST. CROIX | St. Croix is a breathtaking Caribbean island, blessed with white sandy beaches, warm azure water, balmy breezes, and exquisite foliage. Before Europeans came to the Americas, St. Croix was inhabited by Amerindian societies who arrived on the island 2,000 to 4,000 years ago. Christopher Columbus arrived in 1493 hoping to take the island for Spain during an initial unsuccessful attempt that did not end well for Columbus and his crew. St Croix was of great significance to the European nations because of the island’s substantial sugar production at a time when sugar was more valuable than silver! St. Croix’s history spans the rule of six European nations.
