This is a long, curving, sandy beach at the tip of the southeastern peninsula of St. Kitts. It faces across the Narrows to the island of Nevis. I thought the beach was pleasant enough, and nice for swimming, but not really outstanding compared with a few of the Nevis beaches, which I personally feel are prettier than this one.
There are I believe two bar/restaurants on Cockleshell Bay, one at the middle and one at the north end. We walked over from Majors Bay, the next bay south (where the "Sea Bridge" ferry docks) but you can't go directly from one bay to the next because of the intervening steep headlands, so it is a little bit of a hike inland and back to get there, away from the lovely sea breeze.
