Beaches of St Kitts

Travelers to St. Kitts will find the island full of sunshine, happy vibes, and unspoiled Caribbean beaches. As a small Caribbean Island, you’ll likely find a beach that’s close to where you’re staying and fall in love with its sandy shores, but still, different beaches have different appeal, and if you find yourself wondering what lies beyond that next ridge, here’s what you might need to know:

Generally speaking, beaches along the eastern shore of the island tend to have rougher water and windier conditions. Though miles of beachfront makes a day at the beach readily available, generally the beaches to the south and north will have the best water for snorkeling and playing in the surf.

Cockleshell Beach is located along the southern peninsula of St. Kitts, and though flanked by some great stretches of uncrowded beach, this one happens to be the most popular, meaning all beach nightlife stems from here. Great in the daytime to meet locals and soak up some sun or rent water gear, nighttime turns into restaurants and a lively social scene.

South Friars Bay and Frigate Bay probably share the reputation for popular beach attraction #2. Peaceful and sheltered, these make great family beaches with a gentle tide and lots of amenities.

Old Road Bay is a great stop for those interested in the history of the island, as it was once the settlement of Sir Thomas Warner, and Calib petroglyphs are carved out of rocks here along the settlement grounds.
