We were in St Kitts for two weeks and this by far was the best thing we did. I would highly recommend you see Brimstone Hill Fortress . It is truly breathtaking and you will see some amazing views of the city too.

This site is very well preserved and very educating. There are beautiful views from the top. Short set of steps to get to the fortress on a slightly steep hill but nothing to drastic. Well worth the trip.

After driving up a narrow switch back road one comes to the best panoramic views one can hope for on St. Kitts. Bring a good camera and walking shoes as it is quite a walk to go to all three levels of this massive fort....More

Sorry but we went straight back to Basseterre. Have a look on Google Earth and you should find one.

I'm not sure where the bus stop is as we rented scooters, but if the stop is at the main road it is a long and very steep road. Also, even if you are dropped off where you pay it is still an effort to get to the top. If... More
