There are two main beaches in Frigate Bay.  One which faces the Atlantic shore and the other the Caribbean, allowing guests staying in the area to experience the best of both worlds.  Sea grapes and coconut palms line the shores, but so do restaurants and bars, because this is a very popular destination –especially when there is a cruise ship in port.

Frigate Bay South

Half Moon Bay: On the Atlantic side of the island, where the waters are at their roughest, Half Moon Bay curves inland enough to mitigate some of the more severe waves, creating swimming conditions superior to some nearby spots.

A second option to consider is South Friar's Bay. From swimming and snorkeling on the south side, to body surfing on the north, Friar's Bay offers plenty of activities to visitors. The powdery sands on both sides are perfect for sunbathing.

Conaree Bay: Head northwest on Wellington Rd a short distance from Basseterre until you reach Conaree Village, which is located just west of the airport. From here, make the short journey to the coast. From Independence Square in downtown Basseterre, the beach is 2.2 miles away.

The table just below enables you to get some key facts regarding the beaches found in and around the area.
