Our to 5 St. Kitts and Nevis Anchorages are:

Pinney's Beach

Anchorage Pinneys beach mount nevis

This is the best and really only anchorage in Nevis. You are technically allowed to anchor elsewhere. However when I asked customs if it was ok to go and anchor somewhere else they said it wasn't a good idea. Not a direct no but it is certainly frowned upon.


Who cares though you can grab a mooring ball right in front of mount nevis for $25 a week! Not to mention the perfect white sand beach with crystal clear turquoise water. It's an amazing spot. I was their 10 days and honestly could have spent a month their.


When clearing into Nevis beware of the dinghy dock at the ferry terminal. It chews up dinghys daily. It poped mine. I was warned, knew the risks and took every preventative measure I could. A line broke and someone retied it under a ladder that poped it.


Frigate Bay

This anchoring bay is in the middle of St. Kitts. It is an increadible black sand beach with four or five legit beach bar/ shacks on it. It can get a little crowded if a cruise ship is in port. Head further down the beach and the crowd will thin out.


The holding here is really good. Their is some sea grass but if you don't drop your anchor directly in it you are going to have a totally burried anchor. Their is a big tide in this area for some reason. Up to two feet so be mindfull of what tide you anchor in and allow for 2 feet of swing.


South Friars Bay

This bay is home to the best beach bar in the Caribbean Shipwrecks. The holding is good. Their is great protection for weather in any direction but south. Spend some time here. If the wind does shift to the south Majors Bay bay is the place to go.


White House Bay

This is the last anchorage before you get to the foot of St. Kitts. it is a very popular anchorage. Their were all sorts of boats their during my stay. It is a favorite hangout of super yachts. I never anchored here but given it's location, protection and the number of boat their at all time I can surmise that it has great holding.


Majors Bay

I love this spot. It is at the very south end of St. Kitts and from inside the bay you have a perfect view of Nevis. The water is crystal clear and deep emerald. Their are lots of sand holes to anchor in close to shore.


I was their 3 days and only saw two other people on the beach (locals). Their is also a sweet reef to dive and snorkel on. Its right around the close corner when you come into the bay. Their is even a family of blow fish under the shipwreck.
