To visit the southeast peninsula, turn off the roundabout at the end of Wellington Road (opposite turning to the airport) and at the end of this new road turn left. This leads to the narrow spit of land sandwiched between North and South Frigate Bays. This area is being heavily developed with large hotels and condominiums, the natural lagoons providing an additional attraction. Frigate Bay is now dominated by the huge Marriott Hotel on the north (Atlantic) side and adjacent golf course. Breakers have been built so that guests can get into the water. South Frigate Bay is on the Caribbean Sea and is popular with locals as it is the closest beach to the capital. There are several beach bars here and watersports. The six-mile Dr Kennedy A Simmonds Highway runs from Frigate Bay to Major’s Bay along the backbone of the peninsula. From the top there is a lookout with a great view of North Friars Bay Beach on the Atlantic and South Friars Bay Beach on the Caribbean Sea, with Nevis at the end. You may see green vervet monkeys before descending to White House Bay. Skirt the Great Salt Pond. Halfway round turn left to reach Sand Bank Bay, a lovely secluded bay (unmarked left turn down dirt road). Continue on the main highway and turn left for Cockleshell Bay and Turtle Beach (good for watersports and stunning views across to Nevis). The main road leads to Major’s Bay.
