Hay Penny Beach

Southside, St. Croix

Hay Penny is one of the only beaches on the south side of St. Croix and it is a fantastic beach. It's long sandy shore and calm waters make it a perfect place to take a walk down the beach or relax in the waters. Being on the south shore the beach is out in the countryside and is directly south of Christainsted. This makes it a quick place to get away from the city if you're staying there to find some peace from the bustle of the city.

Hay Penny isn't a busy beach, but it is a popular place for people to visit. You likely won't have the beach to yourself, but since it's so large you can find your own corner of relaxation. The beach is located down a dirt road with plenty of parking. One of my favorite things about Hay Penny is that it's the perfect place to bring your dog!
