Description

Brimstone Hill TourSee the main landmarks St. Kitts offers on this unique tropical adventure. First, on this St. Kitts excursion, you'll tour landmarks in Basseterre, such as Pall Mall Square and the Immaculate Church. Thereafter, you head north, seeing Bloody Point and Romney Manor before reaching Brimstone Fortress. Your festive day concludes at Cockleshell Beach for swimming and relaxation.The lush tropical landscape is complemented by the Georgian architecture in Basseterre. Your guide will collect you from the pier, driving to Independence Square (formerly Pall Mall Square). Since 1750, it has been the center of government and business. In fact, as you will hear on your St. Kitts tour, African slaves were housed nearby and traded in the square until it was outlawed in the 19th-century.Next, you'll visit the Immaculate Conception Church, built in the famed Georgian style. Continue driving north past quaint villages, such as Boyd's Village and Challengers Village, onto Bloody Point, named in remembrance of the Carib Indians (the island's first inhabitants) who were massacred by the French and English during a battle in 1626.On the journey to Caribelle Batik, on the left-hand side of the road you'll find stone petroglyphs created by the Caribs. Nearby, visit Romney Manor to see the magnificent old Saman tree, more than 400 years old.Built in the 16th-century, Brimstone Hill Fortress is the next landmark visited. In 1999, it was inducted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 40-acre site was built by British engineers and slaves imported from Africa. It is one of the most well preserved and oldest fortresses in the hemisphere.Thereafter, you'll drive south passing the affluent area of Frigate Bay before reaching Cockleshell Beach. You can swim and relax on the pristine beach, listening to the sounds at Reggae Beach Bar and Grill. Book your historical and scenic adventure to the beach today.
