St. Kitts Island of St. Kitts & Nevis ( KN ) - Travel Guide





St. Kitts Destination Wedding Venues

Hotels/Resorts:

Plenty of romantic accommodations await couples on the island of St. Kitts, perfect for a destination wedding ceremony or reception! Fewer chain businesses find a place on this laidback, quiet island in the eastern Caribbean – rather, St. Kitts contains many small, family-owned hotels, condominiums, and beautifully restored plantation inns, all built under height restrictions to highlight the stunning scenery. These carefully preserved buildings contain updated features and amenities, but still retain their 18th century charm, perfect for an intimate destination wedding ceremony.

Many St. Kitts hotels and inns sit on some of the most beautiful locations on the island, such as black-sand Dieppe Bay and popular North Frigate Bay. Consider booking one of these prime beachfront properties, many of which offer wedding packages, coordination services, and a choice of beautiful locations for your ceremony. Enjoy the privacy, friendly atmosphere, and at-home feeling of St. Kitts hotels and resorts, a wonderful choice for any island destination wedding!

Beaches:

Look to the beautiful beaches of St. Kitts for your destination wedding venue, each with its own unique personality and appeal. The beaches of this tiny island don’t necessarily fulfill the traditional expectations for a Caribbean shore – couples should not expect to find an abundance of bright white sand. Here the shores range from the soft, pale golden and white sand of the southeastern peninsula to the coarse volcanic grey and black beaches of the north and west coasts. St. Kitts also holds a unique position in between two bodies of water – the Caribbean Sea frames the southern coast, where the beaches tend to remain calmer, while the northern side faces the Atlantic Ocean with bigger waves and more dramatic shores. With such a wide variety of beaches, couples find it easy to locate one that suits their tastes for the perfect St. Kitts destination wedding.

The majority of tourists head to the island’s southeastern peninsula, which contains the palest sand beaches and many of St. Kitts’ hotels. Popular North Frigate Bay, with its stretch of condos, resorts, and other convenient accommodations, makes an excellent choice for a destination wedding – simply check into your hotel, and let the planners take care of the details for you! Further along the peninsula lie more isolated beaches such as Turtle Beach and Banana Bay, which require more of a drive but pay off with their excellent scenery, quiet atmospheres, and views of neighboring Nevis! For a completely unique experience, head to a spot such as Dieppe Bay on the northern side of the island, featuring the signature dramatic black sand of St. Kitts – the various beaches in between become darker as you head further north, and lighter as you head back to the southeast. Regardless of where you end up on St. Kitts, all of the beaches remain open to the public and contain absolutely stunning scenery – views of rolling hills, crashing waves, and the lush surroundings of this tropical island. Choose from the developed or the undeveloped, the quiet or the party scene, the dramatic or the serene – on the island of St. Kitts, the perfect beach wedding venue lies waiting for you!

North Frigate Bay

Arguably one of the most popular beaches on St. Kitts, South Frigate Bay, located on the island’s southeastern peninsula, contains several of the island’s major condos and hotels. This long stretch of accessible golden sand offers any sort of facility a destination wedding party may need – food, drink, nearby accommodations, bathrooms, and of course, beautiful scenery. This also means couples can easily accommodate any sized wedding party, from an intimate ceremony for 2 to their 100 closest friends and family members. A popular option for wedding parties in this area is to simply book into one of the nearby hotels, and enjoy full use of a wedding coordinator and reception site only minutes from the beach! Couples may encounter other people sunning or swimming on North Frigate Beach during the day, but the area rarely grows crowded. Shoot for holding your ceremony early in the morning or later in the evening if this becomes a concern. Exchange vows with the blue Caribbean waters before you and the rolling hills of St. Kitts behind you – a stunning background no matter which way you turn!

South Frigate Bay

South Frigate Bay brings the party to St. Kitts with its many beach bars, souvenir shacks, restaurants, and generally laidback and fun Caribbean atmosphere. Located on the southern side of the southeast peninsula, this beach is perhaps one of the most sought-out on the island. Expect to see activity here, ranging from competitions to water sports to parties at the nearby bars. When night falls, things only pick up with live music and celebration, perfect for couples who want an anything-but-boring wedding! The beach itself is beautiful, with a long strip of golden sand fringed by palm trees and lapped by aqua waves, popular for swimming and tanning. Expect to find other people here, particularly during the night – if you prefer a quieter atmosphere, you may want to aim for a morning ceremony. South Frigate Bay works well for couples who don’t mind a little background noise and fun during their proceedings, although it shouldn’t prove too difficult to find a quieter corner for exchanging vows. Make sure to return to this favorite hangout spot on your honeymoon, and partake of the activities and socialize with the friendly crowds!

South Friar’s Bay

This beautiful and easily accessible southeast-peninsula beach makes an ideal spot for your St. Kitts destination wedding. Here, the protected waters stay calmer than many of the other spots on the island, resulting in a gentle background of shimmering blue ocean and a stretch of golden sand. Beach bars line the shore, but don’t really pick up until later in the day – for the most part, this beach remains calm and tranquil with a great atmosphere. You may encounter people traveling here for the water sports, as South Friar’s Bay is home to some great snorkeling and swimming opportunities!

North Friar’s Bay

Take the bumpy road to North Friar’s Beach, across the peninsula from its sister beach South Friar’s. Visitors quickly find that the two destinations could not be more different, despite sharing a name, and North Friar’s may better suit couples with a taste for seclusion and the dramatic. No facilities await you here, so come fully prepared with anything you might need for your wedding ceremony! The beach on this Atlantic-facing side stays more rugged with large crashing waves, not ideal for swimming but great for destination wedding photos. This beach generally works best for those planning a small, intimate ceremony and who don’t mind a bit of a rough drive. If you find yourself on this lovely, quiet spot, however, enjoy the golden sand and brilliant ocean views – you’re likely to be one of the only people there!

Dieppe Bay

Home to the Golden Lemon Inn and Villas, this unique black sand beach offers isolation and a peaceful setting for your St. Kitts destination wedding. Expect few people (most stick to the golden beaches of the southeastern peninsula), but prepare for a different kind of beauty – one more rugged and much less developed. Yet another interesting aspect of Dieppe Bay lies in its views – looking out towards the water, couples can see where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea merge. For a signature St. Kitts beach experience, consider hosting your ceremony right on the coarse black sand with beautiful ocean views, an experience completely unique to the island.

White House Bay

Well-known for its excellent snorkeling, White House Bay is not your traditional white-sand Caribbean beach. Located on the southern side of the peninsula, its rocky shores discourage swimming and tanning, but offer absolutely stunning views of the water and surrounding areas. White House Bay remains incredibly isolated and peaceful, perfect for an intimate exchanging of vows – but it requires a bit of a drive and access through a dirt road, which may deter some larger wedding parties. Return on your honeymoon to explore the coral and intriguing shipwrecks below the surface!

Cockleshell Bay

Located on the very tip of the southeastern peninsula, right near The Narrows (which separate St. Kitts from Nevis), couples find lovely Cockleshell Beach. Easily accessible by taxi or car, this beach boasts some of the lightest sand on the island of St. Kitts, a big draw for visitors and cruise ship tourists. While a few beach bars border the shore, the area stays completely free of resorts and hotels, which reduces some of the traffic. Beware of cruise ships, however, which quickly flood this tranquil spot with crowds. For the rest of the time, however, things stay fairly quiet and laidback on this 2-mile stretch of beautiful, palm-tree bordered white sand.

Banana Bay

Also located on the tip of the southeastern peninsula, Banana Bay sits right next to Cockleshell Beach, but generally remains quieter and more isolated. A snack stand and the ruins of an old hotel destroyed by a hurricane dot the shore, which otherwise remains largely quiet and untouched. No facilities await couples on Banana Bay, but Cockleshell Beach remains reachable by a short nearby path. Look out towards the water and take in the views of Nevis as you exchange vows on the golden sand, possibly with the entire beach to yourselves. Access Banana Bay by car or by taxi – as it requires a bit of a drive, it works best for intimate ceremonies without large wedding parties. Despite the work to get there, couples find a tradeoff in the calm, quiet, and absolutely romantic atmosphere!

Turtle Beach

Head to lovely Turtle Beach, located at the tip of the southeastern peninsula, for a beautiful stretch of sand with a great atmosphere. Couples can enjoy the quiet and isolated setting, perfect for exchanging vows – walk out onto the jetty and gaze into the turquoise Caribbean waters, and find lovely views of Nevis right from where you stand! Facilities here remain limited, with only a small restaurant and beach bar, so bring any supplies you might need for your St. Kitts destination wedding. You may encounter a few other people who come for the excellent snorkeling and swimming, but for the most part, Turtle Beach remains fairly quiet and isolated.

Conaree Bay

A narrow beach located on the Atlantic-facing side of the island, Conaree Bay features the signature black and grey sand of St. Kitts, along with rougher waves that make for dramatic destination wedding photography. Although not recommended for swimming, this spot draws visitors for its bodysurfing, excellent snorkeling, and other water sports. Stand on the coarse sand and enjoy the beautiful surrounding views as you exchange “I do’s”, on this peaceful and secluded St. Kitts black sand beach!

Half Moon Bay

Another black sand beach on the Atlantic-facing coast of St. Kitts, Half Moon Bay entices couples with its dramatic waves and beautiful scenery, popular with surfers looking for some thrills! Listen to the crashing of the water as you exchange vows on this peaceful shore, with little development to distract you. This beach combines the best of the isolated Caribbean island feeling with a setting totally unique to St. Kitts – a perfect marriage for the perfect destination wedding ceremony!

Villas:

For an intimate destination wedding experience, consider renting a St. Kitts villa, your own private little home in paradise! Villas bring several luxuries to weddings and honeymoons that hotels may not – more privacy, more space, fewer crowds, and facilities exclusively for the occupants! Many of these villas sit in prime areas of the island, surrounded by the lush scenery and hills characteristic of St. Kitts. Book one right on lovely Frigate Bay or any other preferred area throughout the island, and experience all of the benefits of a hotel without the hassle of the crowds. When it comes time for your wedding ceremony, imagine holding the proceedings right on your deck, manicured grounds, near your private swimming pool, or of course right on the nearby beach. With no one to dictate where your wedding must take place, couples are free to use their creativity! Work with an independent wedding planner from St. Kitts or bring your own, as they can help you locate some of the best spots on the island as well as coordinate a staff for the big day. The morning after your wedding, an entire island lays at your feet without ever having to pack or head to a crowded airport – the undeniable allure of the “weddingmoon”. Choose the perfect villa for your St. Kitts destination wedding, in any size or style to best fit your party, and enjoy a private island ceremony unlike anything else available!
