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.

We wanted to go to Friars beach but it was close due to dredging so the taxis driver took us to South Friars Beach. The club at one end of the beach had been rented for the day so we were left we the small places along the beach. This beach is very narrow most places and the sand is... More

A nice beach. Nice sand. Good beach for walking. Some warnings about sea urchins in rocks. Good for snorkeling. Small restaurants and bars along beach where you can rent a beach chair. Sand fleas on a humid, overcast day but did not see or feel them on a bright sunny day. Stop for cruise ships visitors at one end. Shipwreck... More

Nice beach, the sand was quite grey but there are a number of places to hire beach loungers and sun shades for about 10 dollars each and bars/restaurants with facilities. The main advantage of this beach is the close proximity of a small coral reef about 15 metres off shore, so snorkelling can be done directly from the beach. The... More

Go to jamrock and ask for Wayne for beach chairs and lunch. There is also a lady who gives aloe massages on the beach for a $1 per min.

This is one of the most scenic beaches in the Caribbean. A really laid back vibe, great food and drinks shack although a bit pricey. This beach resembles Hawaii. Do try the paddle boarding vendor out on this beach, they're excellent. Honu Pelikana.

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
