Empty beach, great snorkeling

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... read 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

Nice little beach, great clear water and lovely views of Nevis. Loved the mix of white and black sand, looked lovely. The beach is overcrowded though. The beach chairs are super close to each other, not my idea of R&R. However, if you walk just a bit up the beach where there are no chairs, there is nobody there and... More

Turtle Beach is a very beautiful and quiet beach with fantastic views, and faces directly South towards Nevis. It has a lovley breeze off the Ocean with a barrier reef on the East end that creates a protected calm section in the bay. The beach is really only used by owners and guests living and staying at Turtle Beach. Cruise... More

The house was exceptional. Everything that you could possible need was there. Buy mosquito coils on your way to the house. They were a godsend for my kids. We had a wonderful time and it actually got to the point of we either need to leave or just move there permanently. You will definitely need a rental car. The roads... More
