“Memories from 1988”
Reviewed 23 February 2009

My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay at the Banana Bay Beach Hotel ten years before it was destroyed by a 1998 hurricane. Both Banana Bay and Cockleshell Bay were, and probably still are, great beaches with glorious views of Nevis off across a channel.

Not having been to St. Kitts since 1988, I make no claims about its current state. I just wanted to add three photos from 1988 to show the views, not the destroyed hotel. It's a beautiful place.

“Best Beach on St Kitts”
Reviewed 22 January 2008

Banana Bay is the site of one of the islands lost resorts. The Banana Beach Hotel was destroyed by Hurricane Georges back in 1998.The remnants of the buildings are still there, lying in ruins. Goats and cows are now the resorts only full-time residents. The beach is just as perfect as ever though. The water is very calm and perfect for swimming. There is also a nice point you can snorkel. Snorkeling on the island is only mediocre at best though.The best part of this beach is that you'll probably be the only one on the beach.Go visit this place before another developer comes in and rebuilds the hotel.

“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 23 December 2005

I totally loved Banana beach and left turtle beach to come here! It's absolutely clean and beautiful. When we came there was no one there and we had the beach to ourselves. There was a stand where you can buy drinks and snacks. She had an outdoor shack with a curtain for people to change in. It was so beautiful. The water was calm, warm, and crystal clear.
