Come here to see monkeys, mongoose and have good food and drinks! Food is quite nice here. They have a great drink menu as well. Live music many nights.

We've been at St Kitts all week and have stopped at Shipwreck several times for lunch! Very casual, great view, easy beach access for quick dip in the water. The grouper fish sticks are awesome!

We heard that the beach is a small one (and getting smaller) so we tried to get there early. Beach chairs are free and the beach itself is beautiful. Snorkeling is ok, there is a small reef, what makes it interesting is an abundances of...More
