St Kitts, the first English settlement in the Leeward Islands offers a diverse Caribbean vacation experience. Divers will discover the island’s underwater attractions of new and untouched dive sites, marked by massive beds of coral, teeming with fish of every stripe and color, history buffs will marvel at Brimstone Hill Fortress; the 18th century Gibraltar of the West Indies, and nature lovers will be pleasantly surprised at more than a quarter of the island’s land as a National Park, with a rain forest abounding with waterfalls and mountain range home to a dormant volcano crater.

Since the 1600s the island of St Kitts concentrated on growing sugar cane as its primary industry, but with the growing number of tourism arrivals, the island also now has every kind of accommodation, as well as gourmet dining, golf, and gaming, plus white-sand beaches concentrated around Frigate Bay with views onto quiet Nevis.


Where to Stay in St Kitts



When it comes to finding the best place to stay in St Kitts, the island offers a unique collection of properties which cater to every taste and budget. Places to stay in St Kitts range from grand beach front resorts like the 394-room St Kitts Marriott Resort & Royal Beach Casino on Frigate Bay to contemporary five-star boutique properties like the Park Hyatt St Kitts Christophe Harbour – an upscale seaside property that doesn’t disappoint with sleek and contemporary suites boasting rooftop infinity pools with a fine view of Nevis. Offering a unique farm-and-sea-to-table dining experience, the St Kitts Belle Mont Farm on Kittitian Hill offers a memorable and romantic stay away from the beach.

Dining in St Kitts



Farm-to-table, sea-to-plate – this is what dining in St Kitts is all about! Beach bars and fine dining restaurants alike offer super-fresh catches of tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi and lobster with menus priced in US and EC dollars. For local delights try stewed saltfish with fried dumpling and plantains or jerk chicken and johnnycakes.

For a romantic choice, try classy dining options like Marshall’s in Basseterre and the Pavilion Beach Club at Christophe Harbour. If you’re looking for top-class seafood, head to Spice Mill Restaurant at Cockleshell Bay and The Kitchen at Belle Mont Farm.

Beaching it in St Kitts



If you’re in search of the best beaches on St Kitts, head to the south-east peninsula and enjoy strips of sandy beaches and fine views of Nevis. Cockleshell Bay is the most popular beach on the island and home to the famous Reggae Beach. It still somehow never feels over-crowded and has quite a selection of watersports. Nearby is Banana Bay, home to the new Park Hyatt Christophe Harbour. South Friar’s Bay offers a casual atmosphere with a number of bars along the beachfront but to get away from it all, try Major’s Bay or Turtle Beach.
