St Kitts beaches account for some 26.3 km of the island’s 78.1 km long coastline. The Beaches on St Kitts are incredibly un-spoilt – imagine Barbados but 40 years ago.
The beaches of the Southern Peninsula of St Kitts are soft golden sand. The beaches scattered along the northern and south-western coastlines are predominantly black/grey sand.
St Kitts has the Atlantic Sea to her East and the Caribbean Sea to her West. The beaches on the Atlantic coast are the windward beaches and the beaches on the Caribbean coast are the leeward beaches. WARNING! the windward beaches are dangerous to swim at.
The beaches are truly idyllic and it is rare to see many more than 40-50 people on a beach at any one time. More often than not I’m the only one on the beach when I’m walking my dog. Many of the beaches give you the true Robinson Crusoe feeling.
Most beaches have a place to get a drink or lunch mainly served from wooden beach bars, informal restaurants and snackettes.
Here is a summary of the beaches.
