Summary

Don't miss this exciting journey that will take you through the magnificent town of Basseterre, the capital of the best exotic island of St. Kitts. This adventure offers a chance not only to visit some of the island's iconic landmarks like the Caribelle Batik, known for its absolutely stunning gardens and historical memorabilia, but to experience authentic Kittitian lifestyle at its best. We begin our tour with an air conditioned drive through historical Basseterre viewing old fort ruins, majestic church buildings and beautiful Independence Square. We continue westwards, passing the egrets nesting site, a bird watcher's dream, and on to Bloody Point. Caribelle Batik, an old plantation house lovingly restored by its current owners will be our next stop. For 45 minutes, see the Lipstick Tree, Ginger Lilies and other flora and fauna found exclusively in this location, and then take a 15 minute stroll through the lush, verdant Rain Forest. Come see and experience nature! The green monkey and a variety of other birds and animals awaits you. The tour continues with a 45-minute stop at the internationally renowned Brimstone Hill National Fortress which dates back to the eighteenth century but has been kept in pristine condition. From there it's off to Black Rocks where igneous rocks formed from the 2,000 year old Mount Liamigua volcanic eruption stands out in majestic splendor in the Atlantic Ocean. Then take an idyllic drive through the easterly countryside of Saddlers, Tabernacle, Cayon and Conaree until you return to the cruise terminal at Port Zante.
