16 Aug A Foodie Honeymoon Guide To St Croix
Foodiemooners looking for a beautiful destination that won’t necessarily require them to leave the United States can head to the Caribbean’s St. Croix for an adventure that’s sure to tantalize the taste buds. Part of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix is an island paradise that boasts stunning landscapes, turquoise blue waters and some of the best dining found anywhere in the world.
Much like America itself, St. Croix has been heavily influenced by a wide variety of cultures. Courtesy of this, foodiemooners will find the flavors of the Caribbean, Europe and other destinations quite prominent here. Fresh seafood, of course, is a popular choice here as are a variety of other dishes made from local fruits, grains and such staple meats as chicken and pork. As it is with much of the Caribbean, rum is the spirit that flows most freely.
Should St. Croix’s romantic settings (and incredible flavors) tug at your heartstrings, we make the following recommendations for your stay:
- Resort – The Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa is one of our favorite places to stay here. The hotel boasts its own private beach and delivers an exceptional view courtesy of its location at the foothills of a tropical rain forest. With its own full-service spa, fitness center and pool, visitors can anticipate plenty of pampering, too. The resort also has its own onsite restaurants and bars. While the Saman serves up an incredible Sunday Champagne Brunch along with other daily meals, the resort’s Friday Night Pirate Buffet is a must-do for sure.
- Foodie favorites – Foodies find plenty of things to love about St. Croix. Some of their favorite local establishments to patronize include Rum Runners Steaks & Seafood, the Cultured Pelican and Shoreline at Chenay Bay.
- Local foodie favorites – Local diners also have their share of favorites in St. Croix. Some of the top eateries for residents include No Bones, Singhs, and the Avocado Pit.
- Food festivals – Croix’s flavors really come alive each April during the Taste of St. Croix. This annual culinary extravaganza features more than 50 local chefs, restaurants, caterers and more. Visitors can sample the best dishes St. Croix has to offer while exploring the grounds of whatever resort happens to be playing host to the event that year.
