The Carambola on Friar's Beach, St. Kitts

Friar's Beach is located at a short drive from the Port Zante, where the cruise ships dock. The Carambola is a very nice Beach Club were many experienced cruise passengers come for a relaxing afternoon. When you like clubs like this, we recommend you to arrive in the morning and leave early afternoon after lunch. Once two o'clock all cruise ships are in port and it becomes too crowded.

The water is very clear, waves strong and after a few meters you are in deep waters. Ensure your children wear a lifejacket. Without support, this area is only for strong swimmers. We make a snorkel attempt but the water is too rough to see fish. Before returning to Port Zante, it is selfie time.

Friar's Beach is gelegen op korte rijafstand van Port Zante waar de cruiseschepen aanmeren. De Carambola is een mooie Beach Club waar veel ervaren cruise passagiers komen voor een namiddag ontspanning. Als je van dit soort clubs houdt, raden we je aan in de voormiddag aan te komen en vroeg te vertrekken na de lunch. Na twee uur 's middags als alle cruiseschepen aangemeerd zijn wordt het heel druk. 

De zee is heel helder, zware golfslag en na enkele meters ben je in het diepe water. Vergewis je dat je kinderen een zwemvest dragen. Zonder ondersteuning is zwemmen hier alleen voor sterke en ervaren zwemmers. We probeerden te snorkelen maar het water was te ruw om vis te kunnen zien. Vooraleer terug te rijden naar Port Zante is het selfie time.
