EXPLORE THE CHARM & CULTURE OF BASSETERRE
Our first stop takes guests into our historic capital city, Basseterre, founded in 1625 by French settlers and today graced with a captivating mix of classic and modern French and English influences. Among the highlights: Berkeley Memorial set amid the hustle and bustle of The Circus (patterned after Piccadilly Circus in London), Independence Square (formerly the site of a slave market), St. George's Anglican Church and the Co-Cathedral of Saint Johns/Basseterre. Visit the shops. Snap photos. Experience city life Caribbean style!
ADMIRE SCENIC COASTS & TROPICAL GARDENS
Enjoy a lovely coastal trip to Romney Manor and the Caribelle Batik Shop. Visit the vestiges of the 17th-century manor of Capt. Samuel Jefferson, great-great-great-grandfather of President Thomas Jefferson, and today home to a batik studio whose artisans produce prints and apparel of vibrant tropical themes and colors. Stroll the stately grounds and admire beautiful botanical specimens collected from the four corners of the world, including groves of Bismark Palms, Traveler Palms, and a magnificent 370-year-old African Saman Tree. Or, explore the periphery of a Caribbean rainforest located just steps from Romney Manor.
DISCOVER RICH HISTORY & DAZZLING VIEWS
Your third stop is majestic Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. Perched atop a wind-swept volcanic cone, this sprawling, well-preserved and utterly fascinating 300-year-old UNESCO World Heritage Site will delight your inner history buff. Park officials rightly proclaim the 38-acre landmark "a veritable time capsule of international significance." Even if history isn't your thing, the fort's hillside position affords a stunning 360-degree view of St. Kitts's coastline, lush countryside and neighboring islands--all sure to capture your heart and create the ultimate screensaver. ($10 fortress admission fee included in the tour price.)
RELAX ON A TRANQUIL BEACH--OR SHOP TIL YOU DROP!
Timothy Hill presents a stunning view of Frigate Bay Resort and the ethereal, wind-swept Southeast Peninsula--with cloud-capped Mount Nevis as an awe-inspiring backdrop. Here, you can see the white breakers of the Atlantic Ocean to your left and the placid Caribbean to your right. Afterward, we will cap off the day with an extended beach break on either Cockleshell Beach or the exotic black-and-gold sand of South Friar's Beach. Relax and sunbathe. Snorkel in crystal-clear water. Pose for a photo-op with our island's barrel-of-laughs monkeys! As an alternative, if you are in serious need of "retail therapy," we will gladly drop you off at some of the best shops in St. Kitts. Your day, your choice, your special memories!
