New Sign and Map Tool for St. Croix Visitors

Visitors to St. Croix have a new tool to help them see and do more while traveling on the island, thanks to the new Christy Starfish system of color-coded signs and maps launched by the V.I. Hotel and Tourism Association and the St. Croix Hotel and Tourism Association.

The signage system was put in place in April, according to a statement from the two tourism associations. A pocket size map is also available to aid visitors: it allows for quick and efficient
travel through the area while also reminding visitors to stay on the left-hand side while driving.

Color coding is simple and is featured in five vibrant colors – Christy Starfish in the color Orange alerts travelers to go in the direction of the east end loop past Point Udall and Divi Carina Bay Resort. Blue shows the way to the North Shore. Green signifies the Rainforest, Red points drivers in the direction of Centerline Road, and Yellow marks the roads to the airport and towns.

Julie Printy, president of the St Croix Hotel and Tourism Association, said the Christy Starfish color coded signage is another way the association is working to ensure visitors can find their way to the best activities and attractions on the island.

"It’s our goal to make driving easier so that those who visit the island can see all that we have to offer," Printy said in a statement, adding that each area has unique and historic qualities for guests to see and enjoy while visiting St. Croix.

"As a travel destination, we know that seeing and enjoying each part of the island can make St Croix not only a trip to remember, but also a place guests will want to return to time and time again," Printy said.
