South Friars vs. Cockleshell

Recommended Posts

We have been to Carambola on South Friars numerous times, and we really do love it.  I would say that the water isn't as great as it could be, but it's still nice.  The comfy chairs and vibe of Carambola we both like.  I am getting antsy to try somewhere else though, so I'm thinking about going to Cockleshell perhaps to Spice Mill.  To those of you that have been to both:  how does the food compare (Carambola is just so-so and expensive), the seating on the beach (and will it be hard to get at Spice Mill - I can reserve at Carambola which is important when the ship doesn't get in until 10:00),  and the water i.e. steep grade getting in, clearness of water, view.


Thanks in advance for any and all opinions and advice!

Here are a few pics I took at Cockleshell Bay

- back in Dec. 2009. They may help you decide


That island... capped in cloud in the far distance? NEVIS.

Beautiful and it honestly looks prettier than South Friars Bay. 

Is that Reggae Beach Bar?


I'm not sure, but it could be.


I think I can make out a sign saying LION ROCK BEACH BAR & Grill

Fairly sure it was run by a Rasta guy...
