St Kitts

St Kitts

Capital - Basseterre

 

The larger of the two-island nation-state of St Kitts and Nevis, St Kitts is gorgeous, lush and full of cultural experiences. Many tourists to St Kitts arrive on cruise ships for a quick visit. However, there is much to recommend here – from many lovely beaches to the cultural and historic attractions such as Brimstone Hill Fortress (a UNESCO World Heritage site designed by the British military and built by African slaves) – that warrant a longer stay on this former British colony.

The splendid beaches remain relatively crowd-free. They range from the well-known Frigate Bay Beach near Basseterre (close to many hotels, restaurants and bars) to beaches on the southern tip such as Turtle Beach, Banana Bay and Cockleshell Beach with amazing views of Nevis just across the channel.

The island is a delight for nature lovers, with many experiences on offer, from trekking the tropical rain forest up to Mount Liamuiga’s summit to diving in the virgin coral reefs and ancient shipwrecks.

British Airways has twice-weekly flights from London Gatwick (10 hrs 15 mins) via Antigua on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

St Kitts is a perfect year-round destination. Temperatures average a balmy 81ºF (27ºC) during the winter months, increasing to 86 ºF (30ºC) in the summer. The driest months are February to June. August to October are the quietest months. The annual St Kitts Music Festival is held at the end of June.

 

Why St Kitts?

“St Kitts has an incredible history and culture, as well as being a beautiful place to chill and relax, making it ideal to combine with Nevis and Anguilla for a multi-centre Caribbean odyssey – we can definitely recommend it” – Mike and Karen Williams, co-founders of The Caribbeanist

The Caribbeanist’s St Kitts Top 5

1. The prettiest way to experience St Kitts is to ride on the old sugar train, now transformed into a charming Scenic Railway Tour, which provides a unique perspective of the island, along the old sugar railways.

2. Head to Brimstone Hill Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and enjoy the breathtaking views, then visit the museum for an in-depth look at what life was like for the soldiers who lived there.

3. Hike up through the tropical rainforest, trekking past waterfalls to the summit of the now dormant Mount Liamuiga volcano. The views are certainly worth the 4-hour trek.

4. Set time aside for the obligatory beach visit. Soak-up the atmosphere whilst sipping rum punch at one of the many quintessential beach bars and revel in the laid-back Caribbean ambience.

5. Enjoy a walking tour of Basseterre, including Independence Square, the bustling Basseterre Circus (based on London’s Piccadilly Circus) and the national museum located in the Old Treasury building.
