Dieppe Bay

Dieppe Bay is one of the more touristy beaches on the island. Although an offshore reef protects the bay from very strong currents, its locations allows a few to get through, making it a great spot for snorkeling and windsurfing, but not so much for swimming.

Located in the northern outskirts of Dieppe Bay Town, Dieppe Bay is on the North West coast of St. Kitts. You might want even if you aren't staying nearby.
