Frigate Bay St Kitts is located about four miles (driving distance) southeast of Basseterre. It is one of the liveliest and most popular beaches on the island, with several music bars, a long stretch of beautiful sand, and the calm waters of the Caribbean that make it a perfect place for those on family vacations. This refers to Frigate Bay Beach South. Just to the north of the long, thin peninsula and within walking distance is Frigate Bay Beach North. It is set on the Atlantic Ocean with rougher waters that make it excellent for windsurfing. There is a strip of resorts along this northern beach.
Because of its location (just a three-minute walk from the beach) on this thin peninsula, the lovely Frigate Bay Resort offers great views of both the Caribbean and Atlantic. The Frigate Bay Resort is a smallish property adjoining the 18-hole Royal St Kitts Golf Course, and it offers golf packages as well as packages for weddings and honeymoons. There are poolside rooms as well as one and two-bedroom suites, some of which have kitchens. These provide you the privacy of vacation rentals along with the convenience of resort facilities.
Frigate Bay Beach South is relatively undeveloped for such a popular spot, so you have access to the dining spots, bars, and nightlife, but can still feel relatively secluded. Just off Frigate Bay St Kitts are the largest number of scuba diving and snorkeling sites on the island. Many of them are easy to moderate, making them great for novice divers and providing both wrecks and reefs to explore.
