This small volcanic island in the Caribbean Sea, also known as St. Christopher’s, attracts visitors who come to enjoy scuba diving and beautiful beach coves. Once a colony of the French and British Empires, today St. Kitts and the neighboring island of Nevis is an independent nation.
Take a swim at South Friars Beach, located on the south side of the island. With a long stretch of sand and few rocks, this is the best beach for swimming and wading on St. Kitts. Still, you should wear footwear while in the water as spiny sea urchins commonly wash up on the beach.
Throughout your trip you can’t miss the looming volcano at the center of St. Kitts. Take a day to hike up to the rim of the volcano to get a tour of the interior of the island. Hike the trail that leads up to Sofa Rock, from which you can look into the volcano’s forested cone. While you walk, watch out for friendly monkeys.
The sea around St. Kitts is filled with vibrant coral reefs. Go snorkeling or scuba diving to see rare sea life such as the flamingo tongue snail which is covered in yellow spots. Take a dive boat out to the River Taw Wreck Site.
If you are interested in the history of St. Kitts, visit the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. This 18th-century British fortification built by African slaves rests at the top of a hill on the southwestern side of the volcano. Walk along the ancient arches and defensive walls, which are lined with cannons.
Spend your evenings in Basseterre, which is the main city on St. Kitts. Visit The Circus, the central square which is modeled after Piccadilly Circus in London. The area lights up at night with local festivities. For more evening entertainment, browse the line of resorts and beach bars up north around Half Moon Bay.

The property was quiet, maybe a little too quiet. There are a lot of renovations still to be done but we felt it has great potential. We had an oceanfront room, the view was beautiful! To wake in the morning and see the Atlantic Ocean thrashing in was amazing.
Quite a peaceful spot, clean and tidy. Some staff were pleasant, others not so. Our room was great, very quiet and all the amenities that we needed. The gym was good and it was nice having breakfast in the shade overlooking the pond.

We liked the remote and calm nature of the resort. We did not like the Ocean pool (algae problem) or the unexpected transportation fee $340) to/from the resort.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Property was clean and well maintained. I didn’t like that WiFi was only free in the lobby area. I could not connect to the WiFi in my room. It would have been an additional cost.
Nicely kept was just renovated so everything was new. All amenities present full kitchen with pots and pans. Washer & dryer. Large village house with 2 rooms not cramped at all. Dislike was that other renovations were still being worked on and their machinery was noisy early mornings.
Extremely elegant embodying true West Indies opulence. The cottages are well-appointed and thoughtful. The staff is impeccable. Unparalleled view every day. The farm to table dinner is not to be missed!
Nisbet is on a former sugar plantation and buttresses the Atlantic. The grounds and rooms are well-maintained. It’s very laid back, an older crowd, except for the lively Thursday night barbecue on the beach. Outsiders come to Nisbet and live music is offered. Dinner food is fair, although quite good ...
