St. Kitts West Indies—The Land of Sugar Cane
Once the most vital crop on the globe, sugar was St. Kitts' main source of economic vitality from the 1700s—when it was indeed the most important export in the world. 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.
About the Beautiful Beaches of St. Kitts
Begin your day by enjoying a delightful breakfast 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 but rugged black and dark sand beaches that fringe the Atlantic coastline. Golden sand beaches on the much calmer Caribbean start at South Frigate Bay, and then continue on 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 stay on for some karaoke or a cultural show at one of the beach bars there.
