SALT Plage: Is this the coolest bar in St Kitts?

Upcycled fittings, contemporary white-washed booths and a sophisticated cocktail menu. SALT Plage in St Kitts is my kind of bar.

St Kitts and its neighbouring island of Nevis haven’t quite been hit yet by the mass tourism that other Caribbean islands have. But a recent trip to the these pint-sized isles showed that little seaside gems like this one are slowly beginning to make their mark on this otherwise serene and unspoilt part of the West Indies.

With a clever rustic beach shack turns contemporary vibe, you can see why it’s starting to pull in the cool crowds. On the seafront of Whitehouse Bay, it’s also a stone’s throw away from Cristophe Harbour – a 300 berth marina and village that’s drawing in some of the world’s largest super yachts and travellers in search of sophistication.

One of the big things that draw me to the Caribbean are the rich historic stories behind many of the places you visit. Before John Denton Hayley worked the design magic of SALT Plage, this was once a salt export business (hence the name) where salt was mined from nearby ponds before being shipped overseas from Whitehouse Bay.

The second draw? Well it has to be that paradise setting, of course. Here, you’ll find a little beach beside you with lapping shores, fantastic views out to sea and a hilly backdrop of the island’s South Peninsula. Plus dozens of palm trees and (hopefully) lots of sunshine.

Being west facing, it’s also perfectly located for cocktails at sundown…

So all you need to do is flop back into a deckchair, order their signature SALT Pond Jumbie or Plage Margarita and enjoy watching the sun sink into the horizon.

      Haha, you are clearly a fan too! The cocktails were brilliant weren’t they? We had some small bites to eat too but the setting alone did it for me. Thanks for reading Jene.
