Cockleshell Beach was my first choice for a beach day in St. Kitts but after reading all the negative comments I thought we (family of four) should try another beach. After talking with someone on the cruise ship who recommended Cockleshell Beach, we decided to give it a try. We are glad that we did, the beach was very nice, not like Orient Beach in St. Marrten but everyone that we met on the beach, aloe vera, jewelry, t-shirt salespeople were very friendly and polite. A polite no thank you was all that it took if we didn't want to buy anything, or better yet we just started talking and asking questions about their island and it seemed like we made friends in St. Kitts.We walked down by Reggae Beach bar for lunch and to see Wilbur the pig, the monkey and resident goat. The lunch and drinks were great, served by a very friendly waitstaff. The one bartender even offered his phone so my son could call home to his girlfriend. We had a wonderful day, had prearranged with our taxi to return for us and enjoyed our beautiful ride back to the port for a little shopping. Very friendly island people and gracious hosts. I was impressed with this stop and I'm writing this review to counter the negative ones that almost made me change my mind on visiting Cockleshell Beach in the first place. Go and see for yourself. A shout out to Leslie...hope you're enjoying your World Champs Green Bay Packer can cooler. See you on Facebook.
