The five best things to do in St. Kitts

Soak up some history at Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park

This Unesco World Heritage Site symbolises the importance of St. Kitts to Britain’s colonial aspirations during a momentous era in world history, and is a monumental tribute to the skill, strength and endurance of the enslaved Africans who built it. The towering fortress is almost 800 feet high and looks down on the island’s western coast with spectacular views all around it.

Hike through the rainforest on Mount Liamuiga

St. Kitts boasts spectacular mountainous regions that offer some of the most amazing hiking terrain in the entire Caribbean. Its lush rainforests are home to many species of exotic birds, as well as vervet monkeys and wild orchids, so keep a finger on your camera’s shutter button. Plan well and tackle it alone, or book a tour with one of many operators, including Greg’s Safaris.


Soar like an eagle at Sky Safari

Essentially a massive five-line zipline, Sky Safari offers an exhilarating outing, soaring in safety and comfort through and above beautiful rainforest scenery. Riders are harnessed into a trolley suspended below a sturdy cable, before cruising on high-speed roller-bearing wheels at heights of up to 250 feet. Wheeeee!

Take a cat nap

Catamaran outings are one of the best ways to admire the superb natural beauty of St. Kitts. They’re also ideal for those keen to spend a day doing not very much at all; there’s no better way to enjoy the sun and sea than on a sleek, twin-hulled cat on which your glass is never empty, the music never stops and the snorkelling is superb. Pick a tour that stops in Nevis, so you can have a picnic in the volcano’s shadow.


Catch the cricket

There’s one sport Kittitians love above all others, and it sure isn’t football. Warner Park – a venue used during the 2007 Cricket World Cup – plays host to both domestic and international cricket matches, and no matter who’s playing, the atmosphere is always electric.
