The north section of Frigate Bay is much more extensively developed than the southern part, and is home to the Marriott Resort & Casino. Constantly humming with activity, you'll find entertainment here day or night. The surf is much choppier here on the Atlantic side as compared to the nearby Caribbean side, but swimming is still a possibility for those up for more of a challenge.

Located in the eastern outskirts of Frigate Bay, Frigate Bay North is on the South East coast of St. Kitts. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you are staying in the vicinity. Travelers who love being in the middle of all the action and meeting new people will probably have a good time at Frigate Bay North.

How to Access The Beach
Take Pond Rd east from Basseterre. Take a right at the first roundabout. You'll reach a second roundabout, at which you'll take a left, and finally a third, where one more left will put you on a road running parallel to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Curving gently along the peninsula's coast, Frigate Bay North is flanked on either side by rock formations, the most impressive of which being on the southern end. The sand on the Atlantic side is fine and golden in front of the resorts and condominiums, and the ocean views are spectacular.

Even if you plan to dine elsewhere, the snack bar on-site could come in handy.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. Luckily, umbrellas and chairs can be used by visitors seeking some respite from the sun.

Remember to take into account that Frigate Bay North's immediate surroundings are a popular spot, which means you may find quite a few people vying for the use of the same facilities.
