St. Kitts Beach Break Excursion Reviews
Took a cab ride to Cockleshell beach with Adennis. $7 per person each way about 25 minutes from the port. Relaxing day at the beach. Drinks and restaurant was available on beach.
The beach we were taken to was bordering the atlantic and Caribbean and very cold. We hated the people walking with monkeys and coconuts trying to make money. We thought using a cruise sponsored tour would avoid that.
Took a taxi ($7 pp each way) with about 8 other people. Driving showed up the sites on the way to the beach, he was very knowledgeable and friendly! Stopped at South Friars Bay, it was raining and muddy and nothing looked nice. 8 of us asked to go to Cockelshell Beach instead. Great idea! We sat at the Reggae bar, nice location, good food, beautiful beach, free WIFI. $5 for a chair and $5 for an umbrella. Bring cash to get an aloe massage from a location! The driver waiting for us and took us back to the ship at our agreed upon time. Highly recommend!
Same thing as above. We had been here before, had done the train trip (and thoroughly enjoyed it). Didn't see any tours from the ship that met our to-do list; all spent way too much time at one beach or another. So I got some suggestions (on this site?), did some on-line search, and found Royston. Royston's cousin Ashton gave a van full of us a good drive around the island with good photo stops, scenic views, history, batik, etc. At the end, after a good lunch, he dropped off those who wanted to stay at a beach, took the rest of us back to the port to enjoy the rest of the afternoon in the town.
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.
