Butler Bay Beach is a remote rocky beach located on the northwest side of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

We went to Butler Bay Beach specifically to snorkel out to a shipwreck. 

There are two buoys that market the way to the shipwreck.

We pulled off the road and parked right at the beach. This beach is rocky so I would recommend wearing water shoes to explore it.

As we started swimming out, we saw a turtle and lots of fish.

As I made it to the first buoy, I could spot the second buoy. The second buoy is attached to the sunken ship.

It took me about 20 minutes to snorkel out to the shipwreck.

On my way back, I saw a stingray and enjoyed exploring the reef.

Butler Bay Beach doesn't have the nice sandy beach, but it was worth it to see the shipwreck, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish.

This is what the parking area looked like:

If you look out from the beach, you can see the first buoy to get to the Shipwreck Dive Site.

There were Pelicans all over too.

Overall, our time at Butler Bay Beach was so fun!

Even though the beach is really rocky, it was worth going to snorkel out to the shipwreck and to see turtles and stingrays.

This was such a fun day and I would highly recommend visiting Butler Bay Beach!
