This is a great beach. If you are driving from the Marriott enter at the entrance on the right before you climb back up the hill that is marked for the Shipwreck Bar, when you get to the end go right to get to the best part of the beach. Find a place near the middle of the beach, the... More

If you want a relaxing beach day then this is a great beach. Go to the side with the Shipwreck bar and grill, not the expensive resort side. Drinks are excellent, and there is a lady there who does amazing fresh Aloe Vera massages (a must!). You can rent lounge chairs for pretty cheap. The Shipwreck side isn't as crowded.

My husband and I spent a lovely day at this beach, perfectly alone since it was off-season and mid-week. He snorkeled while I read and dipped my toes in. The water is MUCH calmer than the Atlantic counterpart and was warm as bathwater. Quiet, peaceful place to lounge.

We were taken to South Friar's by Mr. Mack Taxi Service. He was friendly, told us a lot about the island on the 10 minute drive and was there promptly to pick us up at our agreed upon time. Look or ask for Mack when looking for a taxi! The beach was beautiful -- we rented chairs & umbrellas at... More

We were on a tour so our guide took us to this beach. We sat in a small Restaurant, which was feet away from the water, to have our lunch. Area was quiet and peaceful where we were. Great views of the mountains around.

We arrived late in the afternoon,after touring the island.Although we entered the beach via Carambola Beach Club we skipped The whole umbrella and lounger area. The beach is rather narrow,but it wasn't crowded,so we had a lot of space.We saw a beautiful sunset and watched the crabs running around the beach.

We were in St Kitts for the day off of our cruise ship. We took a nice island tour that we booked in the port and then they took us to South Fryers Beach for a couple of hours. The beach is beautiful with a great view. The beach was free to enter. They have a very nice facility there... More

For our day off the cruise ship we caught a cab to this beach by the country club style facility. It is a treasure. We rented chairs and umbrella, ordered great drinks and had a wonderful relaxing day reading playing in the ocean and walking along the beach shelling. We've been to St. Kitts before and it is our favorite... More

I loved this beach! It was quiet and untouched. There are chairs you can rent, and a fantastic restaurant with fresh fish tacos. If you walk down the beach there is another area of chairs that is busier, but this was the place for relaxation. Best beach of my trip.
