  • South Friars is a beach magnifica is super quiet and clean there is a restaurant which has free Wi Fi, there are free showers too, if you're going from Basseterre to the beach during the journey you can see beautiful places and a viewpoint where you can have the view of the ocean Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea. St Kitts is a fascinating place.

  • Good beach, calm waters, close if you are on a cruise ship, and also good for kids. It´s good to stay close to Carambola restaurant to have proper structure over there, and just enjoy the place!!  more »
  • We spent a couple of hours at South Friar's Beach on a cruise stop in late December. We were in the middle of the beach, between Carambola and Shipwreck, and it was a great spot. No chairs, no vendors...  more »

  • Had a wonderful time here at this beach! We rented some jet skis for an hour! Water was crystal clear and calm. This side of island is calm but the north side is rough enough to surf.
  • Not so well liked. Our visit was quite full, because many Crusaders were dumped. Maybe it's different but on other days.
