Rooftop Cocktail And Beach Experience
Rooftop Cocktail and Beach Experience
Your day in St. Kitts will be one of discovering not only the island's beauty but tasting exotic craft cocktails made from the hibiscus plant. Afterward, indulge yourself in relaxation when you are introduced to the scenic Cockleshell Beach, where you will find a beach lounger waiting for you.
Board your comfortable, air-conditioned transportation at the cruise port and begin to make your way down the unspoiled southeast peninsula of the island. Make a stop at Timothy Hill with exhilarating views of the Atlantic and Caribbean Seas, which almost touch on either side of the narrow strip of land. A selfie and Instagram moment are not to be missed while here; have your camera at the ready!
Step back into your transportation and continue to enjoy the scenic drive down to the tip of St. Kitts where you will stop at a beachside restaurant and craft distillery. Make your way to the rooftop bar that provides amazing views of the beach and crystal clear the Caribbean Sea. Once you arrive, your friendly and knowledgeable host will explain the properties of the hibiscus rosella plant and demonstrate the process of extracting its delicious flavors for inclusion in the craft spirits made at the distillery. Caribbean people will know the flavor as Sorrel; in Mexico, it is called Flor de Jamaica.
Next the fun really begins as your bartender will mix two or three sample cocktails from his own recipes for you to taste. Savor the delicious blend of botanical infusions creating drinks as you have never experienced before. Select your favorite and you will be given a full-size version to carry down to your waiting beach chair on beautiful Cockleshell Beach.
Discover the inviting calm waters and smooth sand as you relax and indulge yourself on the beach. Enjoy the views of majestic Mt. Nevis across the narrow channel and perhaps take a leisurely stroll on the beach and purchase an additional drink or snack from the beach bar; the rest of the time is all up to you.
When your time at the beach has come to an end, your transportation will return you to the pier area and your ship. Reminisce with your family or friends on the easy ride back as you recount this wonderful day experiencing perfect St. Kitts, tasting the flavors of the island and rejuvenating your spirit and soul on the beach.
Please Note: Guests must be 21 years of age to consume alcohol. There will be non-alcoholic beverages provided for those guests under 21. There are restrooms available at the beach restaurant.
About Shore Excursions Group
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.
We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
