What to do in St. Kitts & Nevis
July 28, 2011 | By VACV |
St. Kitts Island Tour
Begin the day with shopping in Basseterre. Next, take a scenic drive to the Caribelle Batik, followed by a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Brimstone Hill, and Black Rocks, a dramatic rock formation built up from lava flow.
Hike through a beautiful section of the rainforest and learn about local medicinal plants and trees from a knowledgeable guide. You may even see Vervet monkeys, birds and colourful butterflies. (St. Kitts & Nevis)
Sky Safari Zipline Tour
Fly among the trees. Begin with a complete orientation, and then you're off! Enjoy spectacular views high above the valley floor and finish with a refreshing dip in a natural river pool. (St. Kitts)
South East Peninsula Road
One of the most scenic drives, this peninsula road winds up and down lush hills, past sweeping stretches of beach and breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean.
The Public Market
On Bay Road, near the ferry dock, stands the Public Market. Enjoy a trip there on Friday evenings and early Saturday mornings, the best times to visit.
A favourite with both locals and visitors, freshly caught and grilled lobster is so succulent it needs no seasonings and practically melts in your mouth.
Must bring Home
Brinley Gold Rum
After more than 300 years of sugar cane farming, the people of St. Kitts (or Kittitians) know how to make some outstanding rum. Bring some home and remember the islands.
The nearby, enchanting island of Nevis fills visitors with a charm and tranquility that takes you back to a time when things were simpler, when life was more peaceful, when stress was just a word, not a way of life.
