St. Kitts
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+

When we arrived in St. Kitt's we went past the first taxi station outside the gate and found a private taxi operator. We negotiated a price to take the four of us to South Friars beach. ($20 e.w.) We set an appointment for the taxi driver to return to take up back to the ship of 4:00. He came to get us just as we scheduled in fact didn't even want to be paid until he returned us. He also stopped at Timothy Hill for us to get a photo op. South Friars beach was beautiful and had restrooms, showers, bar and restaurant. Chair rental was $5 each.

Took a tour with Sonny Binns.($30 pp) He took us to the Casibari rocks, the wild north coast and the Natural Bridge, the lighthouse and an old church. He dropped us off at Palm beach after. The tour took about 3.5 hours. He was very good and I highly recommend him. Chair rental at the beach was $5 each. Spent most of the day sunning and playing in the ocean. Went to Palm Beach pier for happy hour and dinner from 5-6 then headed down to Moombay bar for their happy hour from 6-7. It was a beautiful evening and we sat on beach chairs and watched the sun set over the ocean. Went outside the Holiday Inn and caught a taxi back to the ship for $14.

Took a taxi to Cas Abou. The beach was beautiful and there was a large rock about 10 feet off shore that you could snorkel around. There were many types of fish and I even was able to feed some bread crust to one by hand. Chair rental was $5 each. There was a shower and snack bar. It cost $2 pp to enter the beach. The taxi was quite expensive though as they charge pp. It was $60 e.w. Curacao seems to be in the beginning stages of upgrading to attract tourism. Most of the drive to the beach was through unattractive countryside at this point.
