Things to Do in St. Kitts

If you care to venture away from the beach, however, there are plenty of activities in St. Kitts that we think you'll find worthwhile. One of our favorites is to hop on the St. Kitts Scenic Railway. A ride on this rail offers amazing views of the ocean as well as the verdant interior, all in an air–conditioned car. And did we mention there's live music and a full–service bar aboard? It's a three–and–a–half mile trip, so set aside an afternoon.

Another one of our top picks for things to do in St. Kitts is a visit to Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. The fortress itself is quite impressive, with a series of defensive walls and barracks built into the hilly terrain. You can almost imagine yourself stepping back in time. The park also has several hiking trails and a museum with fascinating historical exhibits. The park is open daily.

Active travelers will find a hike up Mount Liamuiga a refreshing challenge. It's a dormant volcano that is popular with adventure seekers. To reach the rim of the volcano takes about two and a half hours, so it's not a trek for the faint of heart. You'll cross a jungle and multiple ravines on your journey 3,733 feet to the top. Once you're up there, though, the view is breathtaking. If you're up to it after all that climbing, there's a path (but please note it can get slippery if it's been raining, as it often does in the jungle) that takes you down into the crater, where you'll discover a shallow lake.

And, of course, you can while away your time simply watching the waves roll in on a picture–postcard beach. Fly to St. Kitts with American Airlines and see how a life of leisure suits you.
