WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT! There are so many things to do at REGGAE BEACH including water sports chilling out on the beautiful beach and eating and drinking at the WONDERFUL BAR! GREAT FUN!

Turtle Beach is a very beautiful place to stay. The view from our apartment was outstanding. Both the Atlantic and the Caribbean were viewable. There was a dock that you could walk out on for star gazing!

My husband and I drove down to turtle beach yesterday in our rental car, which was quite an adventure in our little Kia! Well worth it though to find this little gem at the end. The only other people there were a kiteboard instructor and two students. It was very windy and cloudy, so we didn't try to snorkel, but... More

I had read good things about Turtle Beach, so after renting a car in Basseterre, the family and I headed out to the tip of the island. I was very disappointed in what I found. Perhaps there were other areas of the beach that were nicer, but from what I saw, it was covered in seaweed and a bunch of... More

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

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.

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.

Thank Bill D
