Holidaying in St. Kitts

Jump to last reply

We're hoping to stay in St. Kitts the last two weeks of Jan., and would like to hear from anyone who's stayed in the Frigate Bay area. We're interested in knowing about hiking trails and beaches in the area and also an idea of what it costs to eat out. The hotels we've been considering are the Bird Rock and Coconut Beach (Colony Timothy) resort.

    David: We just returned November 12th from St. Kitts and had a wonderful week there. We had reservations to stay at the Timothy Beach Hotel on Frigate Bay beach. When we landed we were astounded by the countryside. What a beautiful island. Rolling hills and tropical fauna like a picture. We arrived at the hotel and were very disappointed that they never told us the restaurant was closed for renovations. We were staying in an efficiency so that we could have an early breakfast and go diving for the day but also wanted the choice of a restaurant. The rooms were very large but we weren't overly impressed with the hotel itself. It is located perpendicular to the beach, by the way, the only beach in the area. Everyone drives there for the day from all the hotels. The water is not your traditional caribbean color because the island has grey to black sand being volcanic but the water was 82 degrees. We left that hotel and transferred over to the Bird Rock Beach Hotel where we stayed. We were glad we had. They were very accomodating and their restaurant was delicious. I would say they were as pricey as they all are. The only thing you should know is that the hotel sits up on the side of the mountain and you have to take a path down to the dock where they run a small dive operation and you can go for a swim off their own little beach. They have another restaurant down there which is also nice. I would suggest calling Greg's Safari and going to the rain forest. He did an excellent job and we had a great day. We didn't go out to eat in any of the restaurants so we can't help you there. You can e-mail us if you have any other questions about the island. Have a great trip.

    For information on hiking trails on St. Kitts (or any other Caribbean isle) The book Caribbean Afoot gives detailed information on hiking trails, etc. Some of their instructions can be confusing (ie take the first path past the Kapok tree (great if you know what a kapok tree looks like). The book was published in 1993, author M. Timothy O'Keefe, isbn 0897321103,

    The food is wonderful on St. Kitts, but can be expensive.
