What about Buck Island?

Our rundown on the post-Hurricane Maria state of the beaches on St. Croix earlier this week had a few of you asking, since we somehow neglected to include Turtle Beach, the straight-out-of-a-dream stretch of pristine white sand and gin-clear sea lining the west coast of Buck Island.

My bad.

Of course, I had already shared a little bit about our most recent Buck Island adventure a few days prior to our St. Croix beach update, but apparently that little teaser wasn’t enough for some of you.

No worries. I’m happy to report that Turtle Beach and Buck Island remain just as awesome as ever. Here’s more proof…
