Saint Kitts – Nevis Yacht Charter
St. Kitts and Nevis is a nice day’s sail from St. Maarten in Caribbean Sea. Depending on wind direction, departing from Phillipsurg may help you avoid a beat. The sailing over from St. Barts is very safe.
One may clear in in Basseterre, St. Kitts, or Charlestown, Nevis. The harbour at Basseterre is a bit “industrial” and customs & immigration is at the deep water port. Perhaps the best choice is to clear in on Nevis, and pick up a mooring off Pinney’s Beach with it’s several laid-back beach bar/restaurants. Cruisers tend to congregate at the Double Deuce restaurant, which is at the extreme southern end of Pinney’s Beach.
Then, if you like, it’s only a short hop to the scenic anchorages on the south east peninsula of St. Kitts White House Bay, Ballast Bay, Majors Bay, and Banana Bay. Or, take the ferry over to St. Kitts for a taxi tour of the island.
