Several options for assistance and drinks if you are coming from a cruise or hotel on the other side of the island. The beach is surrounded by mountains and looks over to Nevis island. Its super beautiful and secluded but you can party it up...More

Enjoy a beautiful beach, clean warm water. A great beach. Restaurant, gift shop. We were shuttled here by our hotel because of seaweed on the Atlantic side of the island. Enjoy the breath-taking views in the ride over. Not crowded in August.

Spent plenty of time here snorkeling but Friday nights WOW their feasts are amazing, bbq ribs, chicken, lobster and shrimp with all the fixings, I'm surprised the plane could take off coming home. Great family get together ❤️

The beach was wonderful and not crowed. Shells were fantastic. Worth the cab fare. Restaurant was adequate

This is one of my favorite beach spots in the island. I've been here four times and always comeback to Clockleshell... warm waters, clean sand and friendly people. Also, at Reggae Beach Bar food is excellent and not expensive considering it's a tourist area. Recommended!

Came to Shipwreck prior to coming here. Took the shuttle via Marriott Hotel which was the best way if you’re staying at the hotel. Once I stepped out of the shuttle bus, I just looked around and saw that there’s not a lot of chair...More

Love this beach! We are staying at the Marriott which is currently invaded by seaweed on their beach. They offered a shuttle to take us to Cockleshell and we sure did love it. The water is crystal clear with no rocks so it is perfect...More
