What to see in St Kitts And Nevis

St Kitts And Nevis Attractions


Top attractions in St Kitts and Nevis include the UNESCO-listed Brimstone Hill Fortress, the Royal St Kitts Golf Club, Alexander Hamilton House, and the mountain peaks of Mount Liamuiga and Mount Nevis. Those who are only in the country for a day should consider doing a circuit on the Scenic Railway, which takes in a lot of the island scenery.

Of course, the beaches are the main draw card for most visitors, with the dual pleasures of Caribbean and Atlantic shores. Favourites include Frigate Bay South, where The Strip offers endless entertainment; Frigate Bay North, a long Atlantic stretch of coastline, seldom crowded; Majors Bay, a pristine, golden beach with calm waters; Pinney's Beach, on Nevis, widely acknowledged as one of the best beaches in the Caribbean and a favourite with celebrities; Oualie Beach, on Nevis, ideal for scuba diving and other watersports; Cockleshell Beach, a beautiful white beach frequented by cruise passengers; Banana Bay, a peaceful, undeveloped white stretch; and Sand Bank Bay, slightly off the beaten track, on the Atlantic side of St Kitts. Pump Bay and Belle Tete Beach, situated in Sandy Point on St Kitts, are sought after for their black/grey sand.
