South Friars Beach Cruise Port, 2022, 2023 and 2024 Cruises to South Friars Beach | The Cruise Web

South Friars Beach Cruise Port

Located in Saint George Basseterre Parish of St. Kitts and Nevis, South Friar’s Beach or Bay is one of two bays that stretch along the coast of the isthmus connecting the Southern Peninsula with the rest of St. Kitts. Three different ports flow into the area: one for cargo, one for cruise ships, and a smaller, commercial port. The cruise port has room for two ships at a time; if there are extra ships they are often unloaded at the cargo port. The Caribe Queen departs from the cruise port on a preset schedule and is a ferry that travels to and from Charlestown, the capital of Nevis. A short walk brings visitors to Basseterre, St. Kitts’ capital, where everything is laid out in square blocks: shopping, eating, lounging, and other points of interest. The domed colonial building in town, besides being quite eye-catching, is a nod to their importance as a sugar colony.


  • See a large chunk of the island aboard the St. Kitts Scenic Railroad. This three-hour tour circles a 30-mile radius and passes numerous interesting sites.
  • Enjoy a highly advanced and expertly guided tour through the island’s spanning rainforest. The tour combines insider knowledge with the sights, sounds, and scents of the wilderness.
  • Visit the UNESCO-protected Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. This great piece of architecture shows off the ingenuity of the British engineers who built it years ago.
  • Head to the Circus, even though it’s not what you think. This is the affectionate nickname of the enormous shopping center in the middle of town which deals in island crafts, cultural designs, and other creature comforts.
