I love beaches, preferably the most secluded ones. Every island has its quiet and busy areas, and in order to find the real gem spots, you need to ask one of the locals. This is exactly what I did this morning, when I was awoken for a water-refill by room service. My client had left me a note as I was sleeping, notifying me that he’s gone to pick up scuba-diving gear. I had crashed into a deep slumber after my long trip from Nice. Needless to say, I can’t complain about a long journey when I am traveling from one gorgeous location to another.
The plan for the day is to visit Lover’s Beach on the north coast. The name may be a tad cliché, but once you lay eyes on the glittery sea, untouched sand and lush plantation, you understand why such a title was assigned to it. This beach commands stunning views across St. Kitts and it is renown for its castaway vibe. A tangible heaven, the humming birds and rippling waves of the ocean act as a mouthpiece of the angels and a reminder that you are far, very far, away from the city life. Blessed with copious amount of wildlife, stunning creatures feel comfortable enough to come within a few feet of you, even by the pool back at the resort; a true sign of a safe and relaxed environment.
I’ve been told that the beach can be quite hard to find, as one has to look out for a bumpy wooden track – after driving over Hurricane Hill, with a sign saying ‘Sea Heaven Beach.’ The main reason for visiting is to see the gorgeous hawksbill and leatherback turtles, whom are nesting from early April to mid-November. The hardest part will be not helping the turtles into the ocean as they need to develop their own navigation skills.
I will update you on my wonderful trip, very soon!
