Welcome to Beautiful St. Kitts in the West Indies

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, St. Kitts is home to heavenly beaches and green miles of rain forest. St. Kitts' stultifying mountain peaks and deep, verdant valleys—formed from the 3,792-foot extinct volcanic pinnacle known as Mount Liamuiga—lead out to golden sand beaches and sparkling clear waters rich with tropical fish. St. Kitts is paradise personified.

St. Kitts West Indies—The Land of Sugar Cane

Once the most vital crop and export on the globe, sugar was St. Kitts' main source of economic vitality from the 1700s. When sugar was king, the English-colonized St. Kitts was its castle, distributing sugar, rum and molasses with the help of 68 sugar plantations and countless slaves. Thankfully, slavery has long since been abolished. However, the plantations and mills of the island remain an important historical testament to St. Kitts' rich and volatile history.

Beautiful Beaches Abound on St. Kitts

Begin your day by enjoying a delightful breakfast and then take the 11 a.m. shuttle to historic downtown Basseterre, to the golf course in Frigate Bay or the beach, where you can bathe yourself in the warm waters surrounding the island of St. Kitts. Or should we say beaches? Our volcanic island boasts a number of exhilarating, yet rugged black and dark-sand beaches that fringe the Atlantic coastline. Golden-sand beaches on the much-calmer Caribbean Sea start at South Frigate Bay, and then continue down the Southeast Peninsula. 

Our driver will offer stops at a couple of the best beaches there, offering endless opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and idly passing the day upon the sand. Snorkel around the underwater reef populated with tropical fish and other exotic creatures. Stay later to enjoy casual bars and an impossibly beautiful sunset at the strip on Frigate Bay Beach. Maybe even hang out for some karaoke or a cultural show at one of the beach bars there. St. Kitts is yours to explore.
