St Kitts Beaches

St Kitts Beaches are a mixture of two different waters; the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. This has created a unique blend of not only flora and fauna but also a different experience to the beaches in St Kitts. The Atlantic end is perfect for surfing and snorkeling while the Caribbean Sea is perfect to just lay back and watch time fade away. To the Sun, sand, sea an enjoyable day with the family, let’s go to the Beach! Clear waters and a laid-back atmosphere.

Cockleshell Bay

Most locals and visitors consider this the best among St Kitts’ beaches.  It has the most enticing views of Nevis , miles of powder white sand and the ultimate area for seclusion. You are sure to find clear, warm shallow waters that are family friendly. This is where the popular Reggae Beach Bar & Grill and Spice Mill Restaurant are located. So in no time, you can walk over for a bite.  It is also a popular area for Water sports such as hover boarding and stand paddle boarding.

Banana Bay 

As is with most of the beaches on the St Kitts peninsula, you will need a vehicle to get to this oasis. However upon arrival, you’ll be met with pristine waters, swaying coconut trees, soft sand and much deserved peace and quiet. If you are up to it, you may dabble into a little snorkeling. The beach boasted a wonderful hotel years ago, but was destroyed by the hurricane that visited St Kitts in 1988.

Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach is situated at the extreme end of the South East Peninsula. It is peaceful and boasts beautiful views of our sister island Nevis. The sea may be a little rough and not very suitable for the timid swimmer but it’s a good area to get great pictures.  It houses an excellent restaurant called The Beach House (open seasonally) and the Turtle Beach Hotel.

Conraee Beach

This strip of grey black sand is where the volcanic and the coral features of St Kitts meet. It is ideal for snorkeling as well as body surfing, however due to the turbulent water, may not be suitable for the less experienced swimmer. The area is a bit isolated and depending on the season you may or may not find local vendors selling food for lunch, so pack accordingly. Also, this beach is does not boast a rest room or changing facility.

Other establishments such as Bikini Bar and Restaurant, and Sunset Beach Bar to name a few are also located on the beach. The area is very unique as it also holds a mangrove and a salt pond.

Like wine it gets better every week. Start your night at the Green Flash lounge there is an oh-so-brief instant of a green flash when the sun sets. (Maybe this is how the signature rum punch was named.) Make your way downstairs and sample the mouth-watering cuisine. Dance the night away to the live band and the tracks spun by the Dj’s till dawn. This is the hot spot for locals, college students and where few guest scurry to on a Friday night for a night filled with fun and a whole lotta rum. We are all better when we’re dancing…

The National Flag of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Our flag symbolizes the unity of our federation, it represents the citizens of St Kitts and Nevis without distinction of race, language, opinion or belief.

Photo credit: www.colourbox.com

Photo credit: www.colourbox.com

When Anguilla segregated from St Kitts and Nevis, a competition was held in the 1980’s to choose a new flag. Out of 258 entries Edris Lewis was able to capture best design. The flag was hoisted for the very first time on September 19, 1983 which was the day St Kitts and Nevis became independent.

Photo credit: www.123rf.com

Photo credit: www.123rf.com

The flag is quite unique as the colours and symbols carry our cultural, political and regional beliefs. The Green represents fertile land, the Red evokes the fight for freedom against slavery and colonialism, Yellow represents our year round sunshine and Black our African heritage. Diagonally on the Black stands two White stars which symbolize hope and liberty.

While we are on the Flag topic…did you know Nevis has a Flag of its own? It came about when Nevisians wanted to segregate from the sister island St. Kitts. However we are one federation and we share one flag.

As we continue to raise our flag we proudly chant Fly in the sky let the whole world know Kittitians and Nevisians reside here!

The National Bird (Brown Pelican)

Pelecanus Occidentalis, Brown Pelican or as we locals say the “booby” is the national bird of our twin island paradise. It is usually spotted on our coastlines as this bird is a lover of water. When young, it is brown on the head, neck and upper torso of the body, while white below. As it matures, the body becomes dark brown while the head turns white. Boobies are usually spotted in small flocks while feeding. They nest in colonies along the coast in low trees and bushes. This bird is an elegant bird with an oversized bill, sinuous neck, and big, dark body. They feed by plunge-diving from high up, using the force of impact to stun small fish before scooping them up.

Why Celebrities Love Nevis!

Where is Nevis? That is the most popular question asked by many. Although it is not quite “on the radar” it is a place where the rich and famous seem to enjoy visiting. Nevis is lush and beautiful; here we provide you with guaranteed privacy and the time of your life. It is also where you would meet the nicest set of people; from the servers at your dinner table to the carefree locals walking the streets of Charlestown.

Beach and Beach Bars

Nevis has a variety of beaches to choose from, a few secluded and isolated while others are friendly and common. There are endless curves and stretches of soft sand, warm ocean breeze and inviting waters. This explains why the late Princess Diana on her trips here was always spotted on a beach! The coastline is scattered with bars where you are able to enjoy refreshing drinks and or indulge in some Nevisian cuisine, right after dipping into the Caribbean sea. Pinney’s Beach is extremely popular as each celebrity make it a point of duty to stop by Sunshine’s for the world’s most famous killer bee and to also take a picture with him.

Hard to Reach

Another reason why Nevis is preferred is because of the ease of access or the lack there of. Nevis is not a very easy place to reach as there are no straight flights from the US, UK or other developed countries to the island. Flights are usually connected through Antigua or Puerto Rico which may prove to be a little more expensive than visiting more popular tourist destinations. You may also travel to the sister isle St. Kitts and take a ferry over. For those with a private jet however, they will be able to land at the Vance W. Amory International Airport in no time and proceed straight to their villa or hotel. If you can’t already tell, the airport is nearly never crowded so celebrities will be able to slip in and out without virtually anybody knowing.

Privacy and Seclusion

It’s the ultimate get a way for privacy, sun, sand and sea. There’s no harassment, no paparazzi and nobody being nosey. The rich and famous may comfortably walk through Charlestown with maybe just a few stares at most but that is all it will be.

Real Island Life

Nevis is not commercialized, it reminds us and others of what Caribbean lifestyle once was. The infrastructure of our town has remained pretty much the same. Old buildings are refurbished and most of our homes are still built with the Caribbean charm that people form near and far have grown to love. Can one say we live where you vacation, island life at its best? It’s break from the hustle and bustle, a taste of sweet culture, delicious Caribbean cuisine and a place where everybody will know your name.

Culture

Nevis is one of the most unspoilt and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. It offers a pace of life that encourages celebrities to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty there is to see. It’s a very special place famed for its charm and the easy-going genuineness of its people. The sports we play, the music we listen, our way of life, the way we speak, even our food is unique. The Nevisian culture is one of a kind, and reflects and easy going lifestyle.
