The tour company wasted time in taking us to the beach and taking detours through different areas on the way back. When we arrived at the beach there were local people waiting to push their drinks, junky jewelry, etc. and would not leave us relax on the beach in peace. I don't go to the beach to be solicited by salesmen. The beach itself was okay, and the water was warm. Read Less

In Fort Lauderdale, we were advised that our pre-booked Alexander Hamilton Tour (SKB205A) had been cancelled as the museum was shut. We then opted for Cockleshell Beach, Timothy Hill & Scenic Drive excursion (SKB-280). This was pretty much as advertised. After a short minibus drive, we made a photo-stop at Timothy Hill for lovely views over the island and the ocean. There were several souvenir stalls and touts offering tourists the opportunity to hold a baby monkey. After another short drive, we arrived at the Spice Mill on Cockleshell Beach. We were given our complimentary drink as soon as we arrived. A beach lounger was included in the price, but you had to pay extra for a shade (or you could sit under a tree). The beach was relatively quiet when we got there, but it soon filled up as other buses arrived. The beach itself was clean and sandy, with calm, clear, warm water. After several dips and a bit of sunbathing, we made sure we allowed time for a quick stop at the small bar shack. The staff were really friendly and there was a real Caribbean buzz. The cocktails were generous and yummy. They served snacks too. Returning to the port there was enough time for a quick look around the charming historic town of Basseterre and do a bit of shopping in the many outlets at the port (like most of the Caribbean, you shouldn’t be afraid to barter to get discounts of up to 40-50%). A lovely day. Read Less

St. Kitts Booked a beach day via RC. Got off the boat about 9 am, walked around the St. Kitts shopping market a bit. There are loads of folks selling excursions off the ship and take a picture with my monkey but they're not pushy and many were rather funny. In short, I didn't mind because while they're trying to hustle up some business, they took no for an answer. Got in line about 9:30 for our excursion, were loaded onto a 15 passenger bus and headed for the resort. Got to see a lot of the island. It was clean, tidy, and very pretty. Some amazing views on the way and then we arrived at a beach club. Our excursion included beach chairs but umbrellas were $10 extra. Recommend paying it as it was well worth it...otherwise there isn't a lot of shade there, though some folks did drag their chairs under a tree. There was a bar and restaurant offering food/drink for a fee (which weren't cheap, but weren't crazy priced either.) They also had jet skis for rent and a small bouncy island water park thing (I don't know what they're called, but it's like a bouncy castle on the water). We were there about 2 2.5 hours. At 1 pm our driver returned and took us back to the ship. Ride was about 25 minutes each way. Read Less

St Kitts has some stunning beaches and is a beautiful looking island - we went to Cockleshell Bay which was lovely and has 2 beach bars - we had lunch at one of them which was pretty decent. Taxi was $40 each way for 4 of us however we did an island tour on the way back which was a bit rushed and there really wasn't much to see other than the Blackrock fortress. St Kitts and St Maarten are well worth a repeat visit for a beach resort break. Read Less

Took a cab from shopping area from tour company to Shipwreck Bar and grill at South Frias Bay beach. Driver stopped for pictures on the way. This beach bar is one of my favorite spots. It boasts black sand beachs and calm waters. The area from the beach to the water is short but the snorkeling is good. Found starfish and shells. The beach area has monekys walking freely in the wooded area. They are fed twice daily and were wonderful to watch. Food, drinks and staff were excellent at the bar and grill. Chairs and umbrellas were free to use while there, cant wait to return Read Less
