  • Other unmissable destination of our trip to the Caribbean was the island of Saint Kitts, but especially of its most beautiful beach, precisely Cockleshell Bay. Located in the southernmost part of the island in front of Nevis. It is a long sandy beach and scenic palms to make this unique place. Not far from the beach, more precisely at the southeastern end, where is a rusty wreck of a ship, snorkeled where we were blessed by the vision of many species of tropical fish, coral, huge sea urchins, and especially from giant turtles that appeared to fly on the seafloor.
