St. Croix is the perfect balance between the tourist-focus of St. Thomas and the natural seclusion of St. John. Spend three days (or more, if you so desire) on a yacht, soaking up the sun, the waves and the good living that the USVI have so readily available.Photo courtesy of lemoncat1
Day 1 - North Shore, Charlotte Amalie
Start the day out by reserving your yacht from Regency Yacht Vacations. Want a captain? They'll supply one. The captain and crew member also means that you have access to snorkeling and windsurfing lessons, insider knowledge on where to lay anchor and an on-staff cook who can whip up gourmet meals at a moment's notice.
Have an early lunch at Waves for some authentic Caribbean cuisine. Spend the rest of the day acquainting yourself with the yacht, and maybe spending some time in the water, then try out your personal chef's skills for dinner. Fall asleep to the gentle sound of waves lapping the side of your boat. Smile.

Day 2 - Turner Hole
Dock, and spend part of your day on the excellent Buccaneer Golf Course. It's know as the most scenic course in the USVI, and for good reason. 13 of the 18 holes have views of the Caribbean Ocean. End with dinner at the upscale Starlite Grill. Please, please have dessert. It's worth the calories.
