We visited St. Kitts in April via a cruise ship and our tour guide gave us a choice of Cockleshell or South Friar Beaches. We were glad we saw Cockleshell. Our son enjoyed watching the monkeys but we had in mind a less crowded experience. The beach area is not very deep so it doesn't take very many people before it feels crowded. In addition, the facilities are a little more primitive than those at South Friar. To me, South Friar felt more like a trip to paradise. If you are looking for more of an "island" experience, Cockleshell is probably a better fit. If you are looking for more of a resort experience, South Friar would be your choice.
