Turtle Beach is beautiful. You have a great view of Nevis. But, there isnt really anything there. You will have to walk. But, in about 20 years, this place will be very nice.

It might have been nice if not for the seaweed. However, cockleshell beach was great. When I am back, maybe the seaweed will be gone.

Turtle beach itself was not that impressive. We were there in July and there was so much seaweed you couldn't walk on the beach. However, we stayed at turtle beach house and it was great. We had great views of the Atlantic and since we couldn't use turtle beach, we went to cockleshell beach ( 5 minute drive) and it... More

In St Kitts the beaches that face the Atlantic side are not good for sun and swimming, they are windy, the waves are high, there are currents and there is seaweed on the beach. However, they are great for Kite Boarding or Windsurfing. I would not recommend this beach, go the S Friar's Bay instead.

First, "Wilbur the pig" is on Cockleshell Bay, not Turtle Beach. Everyone confuses the the two beach areas, but they are completely different in every way. This beach is another half mile down a poorly maintained dirt road that turns to a "moon scape" the last several hundred yards. There is little parking and no facilities save a restaurant that...

We rented a villa on the hill above the beach. With all of our sight seeing, we only spend one morning here. It's on the Atlantic side so the waves can get a little rough and there is quite a bit of seaweed so it's not the best place to lay on the beach. However, the snorkeling if great you... More

Well, except for the new charges for beach chairs, this was one of the fun places with Monkeys and Wilbur the pig who has gone to Turtle Beach Heaven. The Reggae Beach Bar is still nice in its new location. The waitresses always remember us and remember my kids. Felito Challenger and I used to hang out here some.

This beach is amazingly scenic. We were on a cruise and just went for the afternoon. Our driver said it wouldn't be packed and he was right. The beach was not over crowded and in fact it felt like it was ours alone. We had a nice beach bed for the afternoon. Relaxed, drank and swam in the amazing water.... More

A lovely natural beach with great views of Nevis. Lots of seaweed but it adds to the character of the beach. Picked up some perfect sea fans just lying on the sand.

This is not not cockleshell beach. That is next door to this and an easy walk over. This is not a beach that has easy and great swimming right on shore. It has great marine life and was a great day to snorkel. There are no facilities, or chair or umbrella rentals. NO food and NO PEOPLE. The beach is... More
