The end of the Southeast Peninsula road is about a 20 minute taxi ride from the cruise terminal in Basseterre. It is also the beginning of some of the best beaches on the island. The terminus is shaped by three mounts and four idyllic bays. Each has a crescent of sand worthy of any Caribbean brochure. This is Cockleshell Bay Beach. It is often called Raggae Beach because of the bar and grill located here. These sheltered waters are perfect for young families. Couples chat, read or nap on rented loungers between intermittent dips to cool off. Others socialize while sipping cocktails and having a seafood lunch. Especially popular is the lobster fest on Friday nights.
