Panoramic Full Island Tour with Lunch and Beach
Leave the bustling Port Zante in St. Kitts behind as you journey through Historic Basseterre in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Watch the city come alive as you pass by the National Museum, Berkley Memorial, Independence Square, the Catholic Church and the St. George's Anglican Church.
Continue toward the War Memorial, a slim white structure with two bronze plaques containing the names of twenty-six servicemen who died during WWI and WWII. Three tombs flank the front, each fashioned of stone from St. Kitts, Nevis and Anguilla. Once out of the city you will follow along the island's main road and stop at Bloody Point to discover it's history. From there it's a short drive to the ruins of Wingfield Estate, the lush gardens of Romney Manor, and a stop at Caribelle Batik where you can watch a demonstration of this beautiful art form.
The next stop is Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved historical sites in the Caribbean. The fortress was designed by British engineers, then constructed and maintained by African slaves. This structure was nicknamed the Gibraltar of the Caribbean by 1780 but fell into enemy hands just two years later.
Discover the agriculture and green energy initiatives at St. Kitts Eco Park, a joint venture between St. Kitts and Nevis and the Republic of China (Taiwan). Afterward, head to Black Rocks, or lava formations, that were created with the last volcanic eruption. While here, grab some photos and visit with the local vendors.
Make your way next to the Sunset Café at a beach hotel located at Timothy Hill for a delicious lunch and for breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Your lunch includes a choice of the following fish or a meat plus a choice of two sides.
Conclude your tour at Friars Bay Beach, where you can dip your toes in the golden sand along with the locals. Your tour includes all entrance fees where necessary.
