Saint Kitts and Nevis Off The Beaten Path

  • Hike the rain forest

    If you can find a guide to take you through the rain forest, you should definitely do it. I was lucky enough to have a couple friends take me through the trails and up to a stream high in the mountains. It ended up to be over a five mile hike but it was worth every step. If you get the chance to take Mount Liamuiga Volcano tour, it will be a brief,...

  • Lighthouses

    UNDER CONSTRUCTIONSt. Kitts doesn't have any traditional masonry or cast iron lighthouses, but the light lists describe several possible small lighthouses. At Fort Smith, on the east side of the harbor, is a green navigational light described as a 20 ft "concrete block." There is a market building on the waterfront (described as a green building...

  • Lunch at Turtle Beach

    Based on a tip from a good friend, we decided to go to Turtle Beach for a visit and lunch. You can catch a taxi easily at the main traffic circle in town. The fare was (hope I remember it right) US$60 round trip. I could be wrong on that, but in the circle, you have plenty of opportunity to shop it. Seemed like too much to me at the time, but I...

  • Quiet Nevis

    A nice day exploring the quiet, isolated side of Nevis. Rent a jeep as the roads are full of pot holes and there are dirt paths to follow. Check out the abandoned sugar mills, little villages and West Indian architecture. Don't bother with a taxi and guide...get out and do it yourself! Much more fun. The island is small so you won't get

  • Newcastle Beach

    Newcastle Beach is by the Nisbet Plantation, at the northernmost tip of the island. It is a nice strip of soft, beige sand set against a backdrop of coconut palms. It is rather rocky but there is a view of the island of St. Kitts in the background.

  • Awesome Beach "Bar"

    If he's still there, check out Sunshine's beach bar. It is on Pinney Beach, about a quarter mile down the beach from the Four Season's resort. We had fresh lobster for $10, and he served a rum punch he called "killer bees." They were killer indeed. After three, I had to walk back to our room at the Four Seasons, where I promptly passed out. My wife...

  • Hire a Taxi for a Day Trip Around the...

    We hired taxis on both Nevis and St. Kitts to drive us around and show us the islands. Nevis is the smaller of the two islands, but it took longer to take the tour. I think this was because our driver on Nevis was more willing to take us to places off the beaten path. Nevis is not large at all, but there are some nooks & crannies that are worth...

  • A day at the races..........

    Nevis has a racetrack, races are usually held about once a month, sometimes around holidays. Some of the races only have two horses, and some horses run in more than one race a day. They run clockwise around the track, the photo is not backward! It's a good day out, locals and tourists alike make it quite the social scene.On a clear day you can see...

  • Going south

    If you rent a car, you should go to the south of the island. It will take you less than an hour and you will see a place where humans havent put their hands yet. Besides it is very mountainous. You may think you are in Scotland . From the tip of St Kitts you can see its sister island, Nevis.

  • If your the adventurous type,...

    If your the adventurous type, go to Friars beach north for complete isolation. It's windy and the sea is rough most times but you're alone. Bannana Beach is also a great beach along with Governers Beach at the end of the road as you head south. Just before the road ends (and before the beach) there will be a dirt road to the right. Take it all the...
