“Loved St Kitts, but not this beach...”
Reviewed December 22, 2005

I was expecting to be awed by Turtle Beach but I was very disappointed. The beach was rather crowded. Women come around asking you to pay for hair braids or a massage and don't leave you alone. The water was very beautiful, however, it was very rocky. We kept injuring ourselves on the huge rocks. There was also alot of underwater grass, which is a little creepy to walk through. It also made the water look dirty, because alot of grass and such would float on the water's surface. There was a little bit of garbage floating around also. No doubt, from tourists, as the entire island of st kitts was absolutely immaculate. The monkeys were cute. This place is good for people that want a crowd. It had a restaurant, bar, bathroom, and changing facility.
We ended up going to Banana Bay and fell in love with the beach there.

We loved Turtle Beach.Take your own Carib tho as very expensive down there.Food at the local bar very nice.We had chicken and the veg option fish burger. You can see Nevis and have the best Hair braiding for miles!! Jenny is excellent who will braid your child hair she is very patient.My partially sighted daughter can not sit still and she managed to braid her hair!!
I would recommend Turtle beach to you all.

“Great food & great people”
Reviewed August 9, 2003

Spent three days here during our recent trip to St. Kitts. Great beach, great food, super prices, and neat people. Kids had a blast. Free beach chairs. Try and make the Friday night cookout and beach fire.

“Wanna Party?”
Reviewed July 7, 2003

That beach is awesome! I woke up early in the morning, and my g/f and I went there for some sun. We swam out to this little dock about 50 feet into the ocean, where we could sneak a kiss w/ out childrens eyes. Then we went back to the beach and ordered a bucket of "Caribs" (St. Kitts Beer), sat on the beach chairs, and watched Nevis. Around noon, we ordered some wings, and ham burgers from the restaurant. Then played vollyball, and played with the monkeys. At night, there was an awesome party! I never knew so many people lived on that small island. If i could, i'd live there! I love you Michelle.
