Very pretty view of mountains all around. Sandy and clean. We visited for one hour while on an island tour. They had clean restrooms and place on the beach to get drinks. Free wifi is advertised, but don't count on it as I was unable to connect. Many others were having trouble as well. I would go back and spend... More

Lovely sandy beach particularly the part near the Carambola beach club. Up market loungers and moe pricey but worth it if you like it at the beach club and down the beach there are other venues more rustic that offer cheaper ones. Greatl beach without having to treck down the peninsula where the roads are due to be fixed up

Fantastic place to spend the day at the beach! Drinks, Food, Beach, and service were all incredible! Highly recommend over any other place to spend the day beaching it in St. Kitts. Michelle was our waitress and she was prompt, and a total sweetheart. If you have Any magazines that you're finished with take them to her, they don't get... More

This is a really nice spot but you need to get there very early to get a sun lounger because they go very quickly. Alternatively I believe you can book a lounger on line in advance of your stay. It's about 15 minutes to get here from the ship and about $10 for a return trip if my memory serves... More

Clean and quiet. You can negotiate a package with a local restaurant. If you consume food and drinks you might get a better price on the rental of umbrellas and chairs. Walk towards your left (facing the water) and you will get a better deal in drinks, food and umbrella rental. The scenic views to get there are beautiful. There... More

Mv Ventura 6th - 20th December. Second visit to St Kitts. On our last visit we went to Brimstone Hill Fort which is highley recommended ( get yourself there on one of the local buses and save yourself a fortune). This year we went to South Friars beach. Carambola had sold out of their expensive sunloungers and umbrellas. Turn left... More

This is the best place in St. Kitts to spend a day but make sure you go to Carambola Beach Club to get your seats. The views are beautiful and the beach club is so nice. It was $30 for 2 chairs and an umbrella for the day. I emailed them before our cruise to reserve chairs, most people just... More
