Where to stay in Sandy Point Town

While Sandy Point Town itself remains very limited in terms of accommodations, you can easily access it from anywhere on the island by car or bus. Look for rental property options in neighboring towns, or hotels in the capital. If planning your visit during the annual St. Kitts Music Festival (at the end of June each year), book your lodgings at least a few months ahead.
