Hands down. The best beach. Great sand and beautiful scenery. Water sports available. And next to Rhythms restaurant.

Stopped by here on a weekday around lunch time. The beach was absolutely packed, is very small, and is really nothing special. Go to Sandy Point instead (it's open when cruise ships are in port).

Nice clean beach. Short cab ride from the cruise port. Only a 5-10 min. There’s a bar/restaurant on the beach as well. Would return here if ever in St. Croix

This was a fun spot that my family had not previously visited. We usually go to Sprat Hall Beach down the street, but Rainbow Beach certainly has a lot more going on.

We loved Rainbow Beach. It is an easy 1 mile walk from the cruise port. Be sure to keep walking past the first beach. We rented 2 chairs and umbrella for $30. The restaurant/bar there is nice. The water is beautiful and calm.

Walked about 25 minutes from the cruise ship and stopped in several shops along the way. Easy walk but wear a hat and take water. The beach was really nice, calm, and clear. Some rocks but lots of room to get in the water. There...More

Beautiful view. Rocky shore and seabed. Beach chairs $5, umbrella $10. Gets pretty crowded, but is still enjoyable. Don’t be surprised if a catamaran pulls up and lets people off as a part of a tour. From the cruise terminal, I would recommend taking a...More

I think it was like $90 for 30/45 min. for a first timer. It was too expensive for me but there are lots of things to do.
