Shopping in Frigate Bay

A major hot spot on the island, the Strip of Frigate Bay is more about late night debauchery these days than it is about shopping and bargain hunting.  Still, there is opportunity here if you have the desire to make a few purchases.  

Gifts and Souvenirs

If you're looking for some souvenirs you might want to try Pirana Joe, which is found in downtown Basseterre, 2.1 mi. West of central Frigate Bay. It's a funny story how Pirana Joe came to be, filled with three friends and a run in with some piranhas. A year after these friends emerged unscathed from the incident, they decided to come together and start a line of products that spoke to their adventurous past. And that is how Pirana Joe got its start. The property can be found at 1511 Port Zante.

Bring your own equipment, or rent some from them when you arrive. The property is situated on Bay Road.

Another option is Diamonds International Basseterre, which is found a quarter mile (a quarter kilometer) from Kenneth's Dive Centre.
