Saint Kitts, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Lesser Antilles

Saint Kitts is an island in the Lesser Antilles and together with Nièves form the State of St. Kitts and Nevis. Originally called San Cristobal because it was Christopher Columbus that discovered it and baptized it in his name. The island is of volcanic origin and the highest peak is the volcano Liamuiga (1131 meters); which is currently asleep. Between its main cities are Basseterre, Sadlers, Cayon and Sandy Point Town. The island keeps a peculiar character since the time of slavery; a colony of African vervet monkeys or green monkeys, a large free-ranging colony. The economy of the island comes from agriculture, especially sugar cane and its drifts and tourism. The island has sixteen beaches.

Tips

If you visit the island during your cruise, the best way to get a glimpse of the island is to take a taxi, the driver will tell you a bit about the island’s history and show you the more interesting places and if the weather allows you, you can finish your day with a swim in one of its beautiful beaches.

If you want to visit the fortress of Brimstone Hill (1690), classified National Park and inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage, plan a minimum of half a day. It is the ideal place to make beautiful pictures of the neighboring islands and the north of Saint-Christophe. There is a historical museum set up in the citadel’s barracks.

There is also a small two-story tourist train that runs slowly, allowing you to take pictures or videos. You will be accompanied by live songs and depending on who you will have your excursion with, there is also the possibility of a guide in different languages. Alcoholic beverages (with rum, of course) and a few non-alcoholic beverages will be served during the journey.
