I’m guessing that when you think ‘St Kitts’ you’re thinking ‘beaches!’, ‘rum!’, ‘sun!’

Yep, spot on, but oo there’s a lot more to the Caribbean island than that.

I’ve made a video on what to expect from St Kitts, so you can decide whether it’s the paradise for you. Go on, click play.

What to Expect from St Kitts

Rough subtitles, for if you’re more of a reader than a watcher. You’re welcome.

“Life in St Kitts is chilled. Island time means there’s no need to rush for anything.

This, known affectionately as Piccadilly Circus, is as busy as it gets on the island.

Instead of rushing around, in St Kitts you can spend your days being as adventurous or as chilled as you like.

Adventure

Zip lining in St Kitts

You can get your thrills from the zip lining, or the watersports on Reggae Beach. Jet skiing was incredible.

Enjoy a unique view of the shoreline of St Kitts and take a speedboat out to the nearby island of Nevis. You can have a drink while you’re there, and on the way.

Or see the lush island from the comfort-ish of a saddle.

Too much action?

St Kitts beaches

Well of course there are always the beaches. Look out for signs of the turtles on the sands, or relax on a lounger listening to the waves come in and out. And of course, make the most of the beach side bars.

Arts, crafts and nature lovers will find plenty to do at the Wingfield Estate, with batik workshops, history and lots to look around. You can also buy a rum to drink while you admire the view.

If you’re looking for somewhere cool to stay, that’s a little bit luxurious too, check out Belle Mont Farm. Timothy Beach Resort has apartments right by the water. While the Ocean Terrace Inn has amazing views over Basseterre, the capital city.

Sightseeing

Boat trip in St Kitts

The scenic railway is one of the best ways to see the island. Two hours of exploration on an old train, complete with as much as you can drink from the on board bar. Two hours of dramatic views, and unlimited rum. Perfect afternoon!

You can learn more about the St Kitts rainforest with a guided tour.

You can taste some of the freshest lobster Kittitian dollars can buy, or laze by the pool at places that look like this.

There are some incredible views in St Kitts, whether it’s the satisfying view of the sands, what you can see from your hammock, a pool, another epic viewpoint, or your next rum drink being poured.

And if you want to finish your holiday to St Kitts in style,  and you’re really feeling fancy, check out the YU Lounge at St Kitts Airport. They have an executive wing, plus VIP check in, and a lift in a Mercedes right to the aeroplane door.

That was an experience I won’t forget!”

I was in St Kitts as an ambassador the tourist board and so all activities were sponsored.
I’ll always give an honest opinion though. Promise.
