Cockleshell Beach is one of the nicest beaches in St. Kitts. It is everything you picture when you think of a Caribbean beach with its blue water, white sand and palm tree filled beach. Lion's is a place to hang out and enjoy real Caribbean food and drinks while at Cockleshell and there is also Spice Mill which is a newer more classy place to do the same. Either way you can't go wrong. While relaxing on the beach you get to see St. Kitts sister federation, Nevis, off to the distance as pictured above. All shots were taken with my 1d mkIII and 17-40 4L.
North Friars Beach is one of my favorite on St. Kitts even though its very few people go to it. In fact 99% of the time you will be the only person on this beach. This is due to the fact that the water is very rough and has a very strong rip tide which has claimed several lives. I often bring our pack of dogs here to let them run free. This beach is also a very popular sea turtle nesting site so you must tread lightly to keep from disturbing their nests. These shots were taken with my 1d mkIII and 17-40 4L.
