Welcome to Frigate Bay Peninsula

Frigate Bay Peninsula

If St Kitts can be described as a tennis racquet-shaped island, the Frigate Bay Peninsula is the narrow handle, stretching down towards Nevis, which connects the racquet head to the widened end of the handle to the southeast. The peninsula is unique in that it offers beaches on both the Atlantic and Caribbean coast; South Frigate Bay on the leeward side offers calm waters ideal for swimming, snorkelling and a variety of watersports activities, while North Frigate Bay on the Atlantic coast is battered by waves perfect for bodysurfing, and is one of the most scenic beaches on the island. As a result it has also attracted most of the resort and hotel development along the coast.
