The town of Gros Islet is home to just one small beach, but it's a nice one -- on a quiet bay with ideal conditions for swimming. If you'd like to experience a bustling beachside tourist scene, complete with restaurants, water sports vendors and people watching, drive a short distance to the south.  Or, if you just want some scenic variety, drive a short distance to the north and you'll find plenty of other options as well.

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You'll find a large selection of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. You can click on the name of each beach for more information concerning that section of the coast.

Reduit Beach

Pigeon Point Beach: If you're taking a car or taxi here, take the Castries - Gros Islet Hwy to the northern part of the island, just beyond Reduit Beach. The beach is located just inside the national park entrance on the south side of the point.

A second place to consider is Donkey Beach. The beach is a short, though pleasant, strip of sand at the end of a long, thin cut into the interior of northwestern Saint Kitts. It's nestled in between a couple of distinctive pitons, begging to be photographed.

Cas En Bas: The mile-long Cas En Bas Beach lies deep within a cove, protecting it from the rough waters you will find elsewhere on the eastern coast. The calm water is also very shallow a long ways out making good swimming and wading conditions. The beach is surrounded on either side by hills and other elevated land formations covered in lush vegetation.
