|About these ratings|
Sandy Point is a southern beach in St. Croix that moonlights as a habitat and natural refuge for the leatherback sea turtles. During the day, you can swim in the shallow waters or sunbathe along the buff-colored sand. And if you're lucky you might catch some turtles nesting their eggs in Sandy Point's two-mile stretch. One IgoUgo.com user reports, "All three times that I visited Sandy Point I crossed paths with a different park ranger. I spoke to each one for about 30 minutes. ... It was definitely an experience!"
The refuge operate very limited hours and only welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the weekends. For more information, check out the U.S. Fish and Wildlife's official website.
