While in port for our cruise to st. kitts, we wanted to head to the beach. We were not sure which one to go to - and others rated Cockleshell as good. First, the drive is long, but amazing. Winding hills, cliffs, gorgeous views. Its a good 30-40 minutes from the port. Once the taxi dropped us off at cockleshell... More

Four friends went to St. Kitts at Adventure of the Sea On August 8,2016. We spend 2 hours in this beach. Very clean. Nice waters. Travel to the beach is easy. Plenty of taxis. We went with Annie's Tours and Guide Driver as part of the tour.

We were at the Reggae Beach Bar, had a bucket of beers, and a snack. Nothing to write home about. I found the beach small with too many beach chairs, and many more run down beach shacks down the beach. It could be better.

A great day at the beach and we even had the opportunity to hold a starfish. We had some great drinks at Reggae Beach next door. The beach can be a bit crowded when a cruise ship is in port. If you attend on a day like this be prepared to have the beach to yourself after everyone leaves -... More

The beach was wonderful, with water sports as well as sunbathing. There are vendors on the beach, as is usual in this part of the world. The price for an aloe vera massage is $30, which is lot cheaper thn anywhere else. An enjoyable afteroon.

We got off of the cruise ship and were immediately approached by eager locals wanting to drive us to a beach. One driver offered to take us to Cockleshell Beach for $5 each, each way so we accepted. Cockleshell Beach was a 20 minute drive from the cruise port and I have to admit, I was expecting alot. We got... More
