A City that Honors the Past to Preserve the Future

Capped by a still smoldering volcano, with foothills forming a gently rolling landscape of sugar-cane plantations, St. Kitts, and its capital Basseterre, is the epitome of a lush tropical Eden. A quarter of the drumstick-shaped island is set aside as a national park, and uniquely, its rainforest is expanding rather than shrinking.

The sister island to Nevis, St. Kitts enjoys a laid-back way of life that’s centered around the beautiful natural surroundings. Explore lowland slopes covered with thick tropical woodland and exotic fruit trees, or wave to chattering monkeys observing from leafy branches as you zip line through the rainforest. Suit up and snorkel around massive beds of coral, teeming with fish in myriad hues, or just relax on an unspoiled beach and enjoy another day in paradise. Be sure to take a trip to Brimstone Hill Fortress, St. Kitts’ one and only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Perched high atop a dormant volcanic lava spout, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views for making the trek to the top.
