We took a taxi to the beach and on our way there the scenery was amazing! The mountains was something I never seen before and we drove up and down them. Taxi guy stopped here so we could take pictures of the Peninsula and gave us some facts on it ! Great view over all, something you see in tv.

We grabbed a taxi tour off the dock and were not disappointed as it gave us the opportunity to see some of the east end of the island before we headed to a beach. Our driver was informative and showed us both sides of the island so the difference between Atlantic and Caribbean could be seen. The view toward the... More

The South Peninsula is less developed than other parts of the island. The vegetation is mainly scrubby, not tropical like on the main part of the island. The roads are narrow, but offer spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, as well as neighboring island Nevis. There are some fantastic beaches and great restaurants, and it is more... More

The view from atop Timothy Hill is beautiful with the Caribbean on one side and the Atlantic on the other. With several cruise ships in port it was very crowded but worth it for the view.

We love fine dining, and love exploring new places through authentic and unique restaurants. The Royal Palm Restaurant was one of the highlights of our St. Kitts trip. Our chat with the owner, the outstanding cuisine (veal was fabulous), and the peaceful, elegant ambiance made this our favorite stop of the trip. The staff - both waitresses and at the... More

I passed through Frigate Bay on my way down to the car ferry to go to Nevis. The ferry terminal is at Major's Bay and I had to stop and ask someone for directions / confirmation I was going in the right direction as the road signs are non-existant. [Guess they have all been blown away by the last hurricane].... More

We did enjoy our visit to this side of the island. The view from Timothy hill is awsome and the beach with black sand is someting special. Great place for snorkel.

It's too bad so many of the Caribbean governments pay so little attention to their nations' rich heritage. Hopefully, someday, this venue will be rescued by a non-profit organization.

I'd give this beautiful part of St Kitts five stars but the roads out to it are terrible with potholes an sections crumbling. Still worth going, but navigate slowly. Unfortunately the taxi drivers take it too quickly!

The beaches and the scenery were spectacular!! You are on the strip of land between the Carribean and the Atlantic. These are the best beaches to swim and snorkel at in the country. The drive itself is an adventure and offers stunning scenery!
