We took an excursion that took us to Nevis Beach. The name of it was Discover Nevis & Beach Break. They took us a round the island and we saw the hot springs and some of the historical places at Nevis. The beach was beautiful and we had a delicious meal at the restaurant that we stopped at. I would at the very least take another excursion that involved this beach.

I had a great time on my excursion. It was a "booze cruise" in the most fun and family friendly way possible. It was nice to see the sister island, Nevis, and to still have time to discover St. Kitts. However, no one warned me about the monkey people! BEWARE: people from St. Kitts while come to you with several baby monkeys. These monkeys will jump on you, then sit on your shoulder. The monkey people will say "Want a picture?!" then take your phone, take a picture, and ask for $10. It's a total SCAM! If you don't want to pay the monkey people, say "no monkey!" very firmly and they will leave you alone.

We went out to Spice Mill via excursion from the ship, as I wanted to visit Cockleshell Beach and had heard it could be difficult getting a taxi to/from; The beach was nice and my intell was wrong for how easy it would have been to book this excursion on my own! Taxis were easy, don't waste your money on the excursion from the ship;

Our shore excursion was “Caribbean Plantation and Beach”

The beach part of the tour, Frigate’s Bay Beach, was the most disappointing excursion we took. The beach is tiny, crowded, and has lots of rocks in the water. It has volcanic sand which means you don’t get the turquoise blue water. I could easily have skipped this part of the tour. Surely there are prettier beaches on St. Kitts !

St Kitts - Again we booked independently this time with Thenford Grey of Grey’s Tours. What a find! This was such a lovely day. We had the most unbelievable tour guide. He was a Pastor on the island a true gentleman. He was so enthusiastic about his island that you could not fall in love with it and his personality. He made the trip. We had the bus to ourselves so we could stay as long as we wanted. He showed us around the island enroute to Reggae Beach. Reggae Beach had a real authentic Caribbean feel. There were monkeys on the beach and there was a laid back beach vibe which we all loved. Beach shoes are a good idea though as there were lots of broken shells going into the sea. Some of us had wonderful massages as well. Reluctantly we headed back to the ship after about four hours of swimming, lounging and having a good time. Again we were shown some great spots on the way back and dropped off at the port. Another great day.

This was the WORSE ever. I love St. Kitts, other than the ride to the beach, this was the worse ever. The beach was filthy, the chairs were broken and dirty, the people were rude, the service was terrible, flies everywhere, bathrooms un usable. Terrible. RCCI refunded a small amount of our trip, but, should have refunded the entire amount. Terrible, don't do it....

Very nice island, get cab at port to go to the beach. Tip only when they come back for you. We gave Mr Edmund extra to pick us up but he never returned.

We have been to Friars Beach in April on the Serenade of the Seas. The monkeys were fun to see but the beach is nothing to brag about at all! This time we decided to head to Frigate Beach. The beach is large, clean and well managed by "Clinton" a native that caters to your every whim! We paid $5.00 per beach chair with an Umbrella. He will call a cab for you when your ready to leave! Great Beach! Not crowded!

Cockleshell Beach is beautiful. One can never get tired of the view coming down the mountain with the Atlanta and Caribbean oceans flanking the sides of the center ridge. We just wish we had more time at the beach. since it takes about 45 minutes to get there, we felt that most of the tour time was in riding.

Land tour and 2 hours at a beach. Each couple had a two loungers under a beach umbrella. It was nice, even though it was a bit cloudy and rained some.

we were on the waiting list. The beach was not really tha nice, and the driver seemed more interested in selling the million $ houses, that would supposedly be built there. I am assuming that there were better beaches on the island. We will probably fly there once to have a better view of the island. Although it seems that the infrastructure is not there to sustain tourism.

"island tour" portion was more like a pressured vacation time share tour, the beach was dirty and the beach was loaded with drying seaweed, plus a constant diesel fumes smell. Carnival DID refund some of the cost to us.

Went to Monkey Beach on a tour on a cloudy day and the beach was very cold. However, we did see monkeys walking around so that was the highlight of the tour. Island fuana very pretty, but it was a sad island to visit since the sugar cane industry was a majority of the economy and is no longer.

This excursion went to the Spice Mill Restaurant at Cockleshell Beach. It didn't include food so we bought lunch at the restaurant which was very tasty although the people at the next table split a HUGE hamburger that wasn't cooked thoroughly and they were disappointed. Not a lot of shade here so be aware of that. We were the later tour so the earlier tour got all the umbrella chairs. Beach is gorgeous and water perfect. Long drive with many potholes which slowed the trip and a road detour due to falling rocks. yikes.

Long van ride over rough, pot-holed mountain roads. Beach was not attractive. Complimentary drink was fruit juice.

This was the day of our anniversary. Weather was a little overcast at first but by the time we reached the Bay the sun was out and we just relaxed and enjoyed the sun. Had a cocktail in the beach bar and my husband went on a jet ski. After lunch we came back off the ship and had a wandered around the local shops - lots of jewellers in each port.

Joined with some others and took a taxi to Cockleshell bay in the south of the island near Nevis. Lovely quiet beach where you can hire hobie-cats and jet skis. Took wife and daughter out for a wild whizz about on jet ski...great fun. Ask for PJ to show you where the turtles surface. Taxi trip =$8 pp each way. Great day.
