Outside of the southeastern peninsula of St. Kitts, Frigate Bay has long been considered the best beach on the island. Located just 3 miles from Basseterre, there is something going on day or night all year round. Swimming, windsurfing, kayaking, jet skiing and beach volleyball are all popular activities at this golden sand beach. After nightfall, the beach bars of South Frigate Bay come alive. Live music, dancing, bonfires, karaoke, food and fun alternate on different nights of the week.
This section of the beach also hosts the annual St. Kitts Music Festival. The western end of the beach is home to various sports bars, restaurants and nightclubs for visitors and locals seeking some excitement. Things really heat up with events sponsored by area businesses that coincide with the end of semester at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (mud wrestling, anyone?).
