Conaree Bay

Body surfing is a favorite activity in the Atlantic swells off Conaree Bay. Swimming might not be a good idea for inexperienced swimmers since the waters can get turbulent. You'll probably want to pack some food and a cooler if you plan on spending the day here since the closest restaurant is more than two miles away.

Positioned 2.5 miles northeast of Basseterre, Conaree Bay is on the East coast of St. Kitts. You might want to drop by whether or not you're staying very close. Although there are a lot of choices to be made on vacation, choosing a beach that suits your family could be one of the most important. St. Kitts is full of fun options, like Conaree Bay.

How to Access The Beach

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.

Amenities and Ambiance

Conaree Bay is a popular beach located on the Atlantic side of the island. The beach is a narrow strip of dark, mostly black, sand. The waters off this beach have tendency to get rough at times. Located near North Frigate Bay, this is a quieter, more isolated area.
