Top things to see & do
Mount Liamuiga volcano
Mount Liamuiga is a dormant volcano in the northwest of St Kitts. Its a challenging 4 hour hike to the summit where you start in the tropical rain forest, passing through bamboo groves, cloud forest and waterfalls before reaching the rim of the mile wide crater which is now a lake. While most rain forests on earth are disappearing, the rainforest in St. Kitts is actually growing, thanks to old sugar plantations now being reclaimed.
Taking a guided rain forest tour is the best way to climb to the top as it gives you the opportunity to explore and spot colorful hummingbirds, lizards, mongooses and monkeys indigenous to the island.
The Royal St Kitts golf club is located just outside of Basseterre on the coast. A round of golf is around USD50 and you can also hire clubs.
There is also an excellent golf club on Nevis called Cat Ghaut which also has tropical gardens to explore.
A sailing trip around the islands is not to be missed. You can charter a state-of-the-art catamaran and discover hidden coves which you can have to yourself. Snorkeling in the pristine warm waters is highly recommended as the sea is teeming with tropical fish and you can even swim with the dolphins.
