“Great lunch stop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We had a nice lunch here. Pleasant surroundings, wild monkeys and mongoose to see, beautiful beach, and very good food. They close at 6:30 so don't plan dinner here.

“Weren't impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

In all fairness, we didn't eat at the restaurant, so this is not a review of the restaurant. This review is for the beach. Very small, HOT black sand and the water was full of seaweed and was warm (translation=not refreshing). We've just been to much prettier, enjoyable beaches. We are beach people but were ready to leave after an hour.

“A Golden Nugget on St. Kitts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is a beach that is visited by the cruise ship passengers and locals alike. One of the owners, Kim, is from my old stomping grounds in Mentor, OH. The drinks are fantastic - had one of the best Margaritas here - and the food is hot and delicious. Volleyball, snorkeling equipment rental, beach chairs and palm frond shades on the beach make this a 'don't miss this place' stop on your visit.

Gift shop sells hats, t-shirts, and gifts.

Liked it so much I went back a second time.

“Black sand beach!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Very different place from any other beach you can go to. Depending on the day and the weather, the water is appealing or not so much.
The bar is good and the drinks arent super expensive.

“Is there another Shipwreck Beach Bar???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

After reading many review, I thought this place would be a safe bet for decent food. Keep in mind, I'm not a picky eater, but even I found the food to be barely eatable. We sat next to the kitchen, where the door was left open. The kitchen didn’t look organized or sanitary. Yes, I know this is a beach bar, but the food could have been a little better and they could invest in a fly trap. Eventually, I had to jettison a plate of our food to a nearby table just to keep the flies off of us. And there were plenty flies coming from the kitchen. None of us got sick or anything, but can’t imagine why folks could rate this as excellent.
