Shipwreck Beach Bar
Robinson Crusoe’s local
Ahoy! Unleash your inner castaway and head to the Shipwreck to replenish your stores. This ramshackle beach bar and grill is popular with travellers and expats – and you won’t find a better sunset. It’s just you, friendly staff and punters, the gentle rhythms of the Caribbean and rum-loaded cocktails, like the 'Pirate's Punch', which packs a punch indeed! You can hire snorkel gear and paddleboards – and there's also live music on Sundays.

Reggae Beach Bar & Grill
Island sounds, ocean rhythms
“Rush Slowly” is the motto of this well-known bar. The ‘rush’ refers to the strength of their cocktails, like the Reggae Colada, made with potent rum and passion fruit. Or the speed of their jet-skis, which you can hire to zoom around Cockleshell Bay. The slow parts are the sun loungers, the beach, the reggae and the lingering taste of fresh lobster, Caribbean-style. Fast or slow, you’ll find your perfect pace.

Royal Beach Casino
Glam in the sands
You can’t argue with the simple attraction of a beach bar. They’re too relaxed to argue. But if you feel the need for cocktail dress allure, head to the surf-swept sands of Frigate Bay and the five-star Marriott, home to a gigantic 35,000 square foot casino, with glittering slots and debonair croupiers. With free admission and free drinks to gamers, you’re guaranteed to get something out of the night - even if you do blow a few quid!

Get caught up in the net
With a name like Sprat Net, it’s no surprise that this bar is owned by fishermen. Neither would it surprise you that this wooden barn of a bar is right on the seafront. And since it’s a well-known fact that fisherman like to drink and sing songs of the sea, you can expect a great cocktail list and some of the islands best live music. And, unsurprisingly, the fish on the menu is ocean fresh. So, no, not surprising, this one. Just blooming marvellous.
Old Road, St Kitts
Get your buzz on with a Killer Bee
A cocktail called Killer Bee? That’s going to pack a sting! You can drink one, or ten, at Sunshine, run by a warm owner of the same name. Rum is the name of the game here, and having been the most popular bar for the last twelve years, they must be adding plenty! The music is fresh and lively – and plays to the wee hours. So get your flip-flops on and head to the beach. The sun is shining and nowhere brighter that at Sunshine.

101 Rums Bar
98, 99, 100, 101!
Up the style quotient with a trip to the Four Season’s 101 Rums. Probably the most stylish bar on Nevis, it’s on the beach, with stunning views of St Kitts and gorgeous Caribbean sunsets. With a cocktail menu to match its elegance and great food to absorb the booze, this is an afternoon in paradise. And when you consider Nevis has the largest concentrated population of beach bars in the Caribbean, you know this is a good thing.
