St. Croix: An Active Island Community
People move to the Caribbean for all sorts of reasons. Some people come to the U.S. Virgin Islands for work (or not to work at all), some want to enjoy the natural scenery or are drawn to the tropical climate. Regardless of what brings people to the Caribbean, most end up spending a large amount of their time outside, taking advantage of the wonderful weather island living has to offer.
It’s this active spirit that contributes to the plethora of outdoor sports and activities in which islanders and tourists alike can partake. For the water adventurer, there is world class sport fishing in every direction, with frequent tournaments throughout the Caribbean. Sailing isn’t just a leisure activity here, regattas are a sight to behold and a joy of avid sailors. There are even sailing schools for kids starting as young as five years old. There’s snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, and so many others.
For the more land-based adventurer, triathlons and other endurance sports are very popular. The weather is great for training all year. Here on St. Croix we even host a 70.3 Ironman, which is a qualifying race for Honolulu.
It doesn’t matter what your interests are. When you live in the Caribbean, it’s easy to find a passion being active amongst the beautiful natural surroundings of the islands. So maybe it’s time to stop staring out the window at the cold winter days wanting to get back outside. Instead find your place here on St. Croix, where every day is another chance to find what you are passionate about.
