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.

Dieppe Bay Beach

Dieppe Bay beach is located just on the outskirts of Dieppe Bay Town. It is known for its black sand beach with deep waters and is protected by a major reef, which is perfect for bathing. As home to a variety of marine life, the reef also makes for excellent snorkeling. It is also close to historical landmarks such as the Brimstone Hill Fortress, Fort Charles and Sandy Point National Marine Park. So you are free to go for a dip first or after, the choice is really yours.

South Friars Bay Beach

As the saying goes, no visit to St. Kitts is really complete without making a visit to the South Friars Bay Beach. It is a popular spot not only because it is one of the best beaches in St Kitts, but also because it is home for the popular Shipwreck Bar and Grill. 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. As such it is a perfect area for watching birds or just for experiencing the features the area has to offer.

South Frigate Bay Beach

This is the most popular beach, mainly because it is the closest of St Kitts’ beaches from the cruise port. The beach is a strip on sand sectioned off on both ends by Sir Timothy’s Hill, giving it a nice cozy feeling. This area is also referred to as the strip as it hosts some of the hottest bars on the island which is popular for tourists and locals alike.

This beach is popular among snorkelers because of its rocky shores. It’s not perfect for beaches but a perfect haven for the fishes.

Beers, Hammond and Rum in St. Kitts and Nevis

When coming to St. Kitts and Nevis one often thinks about sun, sand, sea, tropical breeze, cuisine and a few alcoholic beverages in between.

Upon your arrival in St. Kitts you immediately notice the supremacy of Carib beer advertising as it’s displayed everywhere; bars, billboards, buses and even walls. The parent company is located in Trinidad but there’s a local Carib Brewery that produces its trade name beer “Carib” as well as other bottled drinks on the island. This includes ting, shandy Carib, ginseng-up, skol and Guinness just to name a few. Beers are good and refreshing on a hot day but in St. Kitts and Nevis Rum is the word!

Photo credit: winecompass.blogspot.com

Photo credit: winecompass.blogspot.com

Brinley Gold Shipwreck Rum is handcrafted on the island of St. Kitts. The distillery blends only the finest ingredients into an award- winning flavored rum they are spiced, vanilla, coconut and even coffee flavored, also available is coconut rum cream. In 2002 Zach Brinley traded his Wall Street job to become the President of the new rum company and began to market the first batch of vanilla rum which started selling the very same year. Belmont Estate coconut rum was developed by Dr Ian Sangster in his distillery in Kingston Jamaica and produced shortly before his death in 2000. Dr Sangster has shifted production to a small neighbouring island of Jamaica to St Kitts. A subtle hint of oak, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla and a well-tuned alcohol nudge. It has been referred to as candy for grownups.

Hammond (moonshine) is locally made in small pots still across the island of St. Kitts and Nevis. Now we do not have exact details on how it is made nor where to find it as it is illegal. One maybe lucky to come across someone who knows someone with the right link. Hammond is usually sold shortly after it is distilled. It is commonly drunk straight up and then chased with water or coke.

Also of interest on either islands are rum punches which you will find at local beach bars, restaurants and even hotels. The one rum punch known internationally and which probably places Nevis on the map is the infamous Killer Bee at Sunshine Beach Bar (click for directions). As we locals say all we want is Rum, Food and Wuk up! If this isn’t a reason to enjoy the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis we’re not sure what is…

Rum Bottle Tree in Old Road St. Kitts

There are quite a few tourist attractions in Old Road St. Kitts, however, the one that drew our attention was the old tree with rum bottles hanging from it. Pondering what the history behind it was, we came to find out its significance is in no history book but just something people decided to do.

After drinking a bottle of rum the bottle was tied to a string and hang from the tree. This has been going on for years.  It is now a tourist destination. This my friends is somewhat a sight to see.

Tell us more do you know anything about this Rum Bottle Tree?

Caribelle Batik

The Historic Romney Manor once owned by Sam Jefferson II, the great great great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson (3rd President of U.S.A.) is the home of Caribelle Batik. A breath taking visual of gardens, an area rich in history and natural beauty. A visit here affords you the opportunity to witness first-hand age old practice of fabric; this art form demonstrated throughout the day at the store results in some of the most impressive wall hangings, clothing and accessories.

The Romney Manor grounds have great history; there is strong evidence that they were originally the site on which Tegereman the Carib Indian Chief had his village. Romney Estate became the first estate in St. Kitts to emancipate their slaves. From humble beginnings Caribelle produced its first batik in 1974. The fact that no two pieces are ever the same makes them some of the most sought after Caribbean Treasures.  Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique. Visited by thousands each year, occasionally hosting the rich and famous, Caribelle has acquired an international reputation for fine products. Each carefully handcrafted item is as individual as you are.

Caribelle Batik uses many quality fabrics including the exclusive Sea Island cotton, an assurance of cool comfort and longevity. Their products last a lifetime. Absolutely distinctive in designs they become a great talking point whenever and wherever customers spot one of our garments being worn by a stranger somewhere on the planet. Using the ancient Indonesian methods of resisting dye with wax, Caribelle creates the many designs for which they have become associated. During a visit to Caribelle, you will see our artists demonstrating the techniques as well as receive a full explanation from one of our experts.

 Wingfield Estate is conveniently placed adjacent to one of the Caribbean’s major destinations, Caribelle Batik at Romney Manor. Wingfield Estate also hosts the site office for the newly established and popular zip line. It is a photographers dream, at one with nature and history.  It continues to be a work in process with archaeological digs continuing with visitor and local participation. Most batik garments are produced right here at Romney Manor the home of Caribelle Batik. The alluring colours, imaginative print designs and sensual factors will be an eternal reminder of your time in paradise.

Island Life

Living on an island is a fantasy of many. Although most prefer to live the fast life here are few reasons why island living should become a reality. Island life has a pace that encourages you to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around you. An unspoilt presence of relaxation, blue skies, clean air and long beaches. On the island you are surrounded by wild life; herds of goats and roaming cows. One may even come across families of mongoose or a few black bellied sheep.

Tranquillity is a guarantee 

St Kitts and Nevis is a perfect getaway to recharge your batteries. You may take a hike in our mountains to the rain forest or stop by the waterfalls. How about a stroll or well needed dip in our shallow and clean waters? With so many different activities to choose from, you won’t lack the comfort you desire.

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.
