St. Kitts (Port Zante) Beach Excursion Reviews

Whether you enjoy the water or just want to soak in the sun, a day relaxing on the beautiful white beaches of Saint Kitts is the perfect way to spend your time on the idyllic Caribbean island.
We enjoyed Carambola beach although there was some construction happening on the beach.

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

When we got to the beach there were no available lounges.. had to really stalk othe cruise passengers who were leaving so we could get chairs. Thrn we were asked to pay for umbrellas.. when we refused and told the attendant that they were supposed to be included, he said “ok.. I will not charge you”.. was that a scheme to make some extra $$? We will never know.. overall it was an “ok” excursion. The beach was beautiful. Read Less

Nice drive and coastline. Beach was nice with chairs ($10 for an umbrella) but didn't need one as there were trees to give us some shade at the Spice Mill beach (Cockleshell Bay). Nice view of Nevis island nearby also.

We booked only one shore excursion which was in St Kitts. We booked the St Kitts Beach Break excursion for a three hour visit to the Spice Mill Restaurant and Bar at Cockleshell Beach. The excursion included transportation to and from the Spice Mill, a free drink and beach chair. The gathering point for this excursion was on the pier. The gathering was a cluster/mess of people all jumbled up and we finally were ushered into a line of people for the beach break excursion but different than the one we were slotted for. Regardless, we boarded a nicely air-conditioned bus and were off to the Spice Mill. Our driver was quite knowledgeable and gave some good details of landmarks on our way to the beach. We arrived and as we stepped off the bus we were handed a cup of juice with no alcohol that we found our later was our “free drink”. Once on the beach we were warmly greeted and ushered to our chairs. We rented umbrellas for $10 per and settled down for a relaxing visit. Service was spotty but very friendly. We ended up just taking the short walk to the bar which served some really good rum drinks. Our visit was short, and we were soon on our way back to the ship. Read Less
