Not too far from Basseterre by taxi. There are several bars and other facilities along the beach (some better than others), including toilets and outdoor showers. As soon as you arrive, locals will approach you to rent their lounge chairs, sun umbrellas and watersport equipment...More

Amazing Place! I hope to return to St Kitts and Reggae Beach Bar in the future. Mya was an exceptional waitress that helped us all day. We rented a little bungalow on the beach and enjoyed the water and views. Great vibes, people, and scenery.

If you're in St. Kitts make it one of your stops and enjoy the different bars the beach has to offer. Chaise lounge and umbrella are available for a nominal fee.

Cockleshell is at the southern tip of the island and is leeward side. Very calming breezes and waves lapping on shore. This is a great swimming beach an is minutes to Nevis by boat. Ferry's are running right at the beach constantly. Must visit.
