The view is breathtaking, the water is beautiful. I have visited a few beaches since then and nothing compares. Can't wait to go back. When we visited it wasnt overcrowded at all!

After a two hour tour of St. Kitts, the tour ended at Cockeshell Beach. What a total disappointment, the beach was narrow with so many chairs that we would not have been able to lay our towels out even if we wanted to. The beach was dirty and littered with a lot of garbage and empty beer cans. We walked... More

Lots of great views on the drive there but the beach itself left lots to be desired. Seems dated and beach was rocky.

Wasn't too excited about heading anywhere in St Kitts as we had previously been there and other stops on... More

This beach was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The views are breathtaking. Had a great cab ride to the beach-try and find Joseph and his green van-you will not be disappointed!

Our beach highlight was Boatyard Beach Club in Barbados. Yet, we still enjoyed Cockleshell Beach. Packed our beach shoes but left them on the ship. As there are shells everywhere, my wife felt discomfort. Still, for $10 negotiated by one of our fellow cruisers, we were able to sit back in beach chairs with umbrellas and take in the natural...

We took a public taxi to get to this beach during a port stop on our cruise. The taxi was $7pp each way (reasonable fare) though I had to sit with my eyes closed most of the way as I thought our driver was going too fast on the very hilly and winding roads. The beach was a total disappointment:... More

Beach was overcrowded, chairs are in poor condition. However the water is wonderful and you can snorkel at the far end where there are a lot of rocks for fish to hide.

My family recently stopped at Cockleshell beach while on a cruise. We were disappointed at this beach. If this is one of the best beaches on St Kitts then I'd prefer to go to another island. this beach was overly crowded. I was would be careful where I ate as many of the places just didn't look very good. We... More
