Top Beaches in St. Kitts

146 Reviews
At just 18 miles (29 kilometers) long and 5 miles (8 kilometers) at its widest point, St. Kitts is pretty small. But despite its diminutive measurements, this Caribbean island has an array of beaches to choose from. Here are a few of the best beaches on St. Kitts. 

Cockleshell Bay Beach
Extending for almost a mile along the southern peninsula of St. Kitts about nine miles (14.5 kilometers) from Basseterre, Cockleshell Bay Beach is widely considered to be one of St. Kitts’ best. The water is warm and shallow, and facilities, from loungers to water sports operators to reggae beach bars, are plentiful. From here, sunbathers should be able to see across to St. Kitts’ neighbor, Nevis. 

North Frigate Bay
Because of its off-the-beaten-track locale on the Atlantic-facing edge of the island, North Frigate Bay is rarely crowded. With wind and big swells commonplace, it’s particularly good for windsurfing, though there are swimming areas too, which are sheltered by a lengthy reef. 

Sand Bank Bay
A crescent-shaped curve of white sand on the southeast peninsula, Sand Bank Bay is one of the loveliest places for a barefoot stroll on the island. While there has been some development here, including a beach club, the beach still feels pristine. Be warned: Swimming conditions can be treacherous here. 

South Friars Beach
A beloved local hangout, palm-dotted South Friars Beach is the place to go for a taste of Caribbean flavor. In addition to calm waters and clean sand, the beach also has a couple of great places to eat and drink, many of which rent loungers to patrons who want to get comfortable. 

Turtle Beach
Soak up the silence on quiet Turtle Beach, located on the southeast peninsula. In addition to soft sands and clear waters, it also has a well-populated coral reef, making it an excellent spot for snorkeling.
