  1. We loved your place and four of us are coming back next year just to spend the day with you! Bring on those Funky Monkeys drinks we love them

    • The monkeys generally come down in the early morning as we feed them sugar cane around 10 am. Then we feed them again in the late afternoon around 5:30 or 6 pm. Unfortunately they are a wild troop so sometimes they come other times they are busy foraging other places. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

  2. We will be arriving by cruise ship in early January and I heard there has been a lot of erosion. Is there much sand left after Hurricane Matthew?

    • Hi!
      Yes a taxi is,easiest, you can take one from the port and arrange for them to collect you later, or we can call one for you from the nearest taxi rank which is only a few minutes away.
      Look forward to seeing you soon!

  4. We are coming from a cruise ship in early March. Is there access to the beach, a place where we can rent an umbrella or lounge chairs?

  5. Hi. We will be cruising in May 2017. I use a mobility scooter and am wondering if your facility can accommodate me. Namely, can I get in the door and are there usable restrooms. Of course I would not be interested in using the beach, but a nice meal and atmosphere.

  6. Hi – traveling down in a week with my hubby and 3 kids. Looking for a half relaxing day where we can eat and drink. I saw above someone asked about chairs and you said you would waive the fee if participating in the drinks and food? Do you do an all inclusive deal at all?

    • Hi!

      Its not too far maybe a mile, you could walk but there is a big hill between us and Marriott so you might want to get a cab the first time just so you can see what your in for! Or you can always walk to us and we can call a cab back for you when your ready!

  9. We are coming to St Kitts this weekend and staying at the Marriott. How easy is it to get there from the Marriott? AND…. do you rent SUP’s there?

    Like

    • Hi! We are easy to get to, the Marriott can arrange a taxi, it costs about $12us, or if you like a work out you can walk, but there is a steep hill in between. There are SUP available to rent and if the boys aren’t at the beach when you are we can call them for you.

      Look forward to seeing you at Shipwreck

  10. We will be arriving via cruise ship on November 2, 2017. 5 years ago we fell upon Shipwreck after we rented scooters and drove around the island, our only regret is that we didn’t find you sooner. We LOVE it there and plan to spend our entire day there this time. Do you take reservations for the beach chairs and shade, or is it first come first serve? Also, do you happen to have orange soda, vanilla vodka and grenadine – Wondering if you will be able to make a special drink for someone with us? If not, we will be sure to sample several others, and may find one we like even better. Cant wait to see you guys again in November!

    • Hi April,

      Our chairs and shade are a first come first served thing.
      Yes we have vanilla vodka, orange soda and grenadine so we should be able to fix you friends drink and we of course have a drink menu too, for you to find a new favourite!

      See you in November!!

  11. Hello Shipwreck
    My family is arriving in St. Kitts for the very first time in Dec. After reading all the comments your place sounds like the perfect spot for us. Drinks, snorkeling, paddle boarding and of course shade just in case we get to much sun!!! Is there such a thing. I have 2 questions : How many chairs and umbrella rentals do you have? And are there lots of tropical fish for the boys to see or are they more like baby fish with no color?
    Thx and looking forward to finding a great relaxing vacation spot

    • Hi Cindy!

      The snorkelling is great plenty of fish to see, reef squid etc and even an occasional turtle.
      Since the storm our beach is bigger so we have plenty of chairs and shade, although I don’t remember how many exactly!

      See you in December!

    • Hi Kayla, Shipwreck is about 15mins from the cruise ship dock, you could do an island tour and as your driver to end at Shipwreck, you should have plenty of time for a relax, swim and some beers!
      See you at Shipwreck

    • Hi Jennie,

      It costs about $16us to come direct, not sure how much with an island tour, but you could ask Liz at Pereira tours, there are several drivers you could book with, but she would be able to give a good idea if cost.

    • If you want an awesome day—contact D’Perfect Life boat charters. There were 9 of us and we had a private boat for the day—snorkeling, beer, lunch and fishing. We even stopped offshore of Shipwreck and swam up for a drink! Best day off a cruise in a long long time!!

  16. We had a great time last year on a Sunday when we stopped in to hear the live entertainment.
    We will be there for Easter week this year. Will you be open & have live entertainment on Easter Sunday?

  17. Hi!
    Sure it has vodka, coffee rum (we use Brindley’s), Ponche Kuba and Bailey’s, shaken and served over ice with some cinnamon on top.

    Of course it won’t taste quite the same without the sand under your toes and the sea right by you, but give it a go and let us know!
