Willets Bay

Willets Bay is a beach on the northeast coast of St. Kitts with rough surf that makes it much more suitable for watersports than for swimming.

Set on the northwestern outskirts of Saint Pauls Parish, 0.4 miles northwest of Heldens, Willets Bay is on the North West coast of St. Kitts. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying very close. There are advantages to visiting a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; beautiful but out-of-the-way beaches like Willets Bay are usually more relaxing than those overrun with fellow travelers.
