Indulge in and at your leisure this exciting excursion of momentous history and total fulfilment with time to relax and have some fun in the sun at the Carambola Beach Club on South Friar’s Bay. Throughout your excursion, your friendly and knowledgeable taxi driver/guide will regale you with stories about Kittitian culture and folklore beginning with a city tour of thriving historic Basseterre with its fascinating centuries old churches, national monuments such as the Clock Tower, Independence Square, once a slave market; the War Memorial and remarkable colonial architecture that has withstood the test of time. Your first stop will be Palms Court Gardens with its amazing views of downtown Basseterre, Bird Rock to the East and the majestic sister isle of Nevis with its cloud-wreathed mountain rising from encircling slopes ringed about by the sea. Enjoy the palpably luxuriant atmosphere, the intoxicating sunlight and sea air whilst capturing these poetic moments on camera. Tour the shell studio and perhaps shop for unique crafted shell art souvenirs. Venture to the heart of the Kittitian countryside passing along the way the egrets nesting grounds; Challengers - the first free village; past sugar estates; Bloody Point River – where over 2000 native Carib Indians were massacred in 1626 by the British and French; historic Old Road Town; Middle Island – the resting place of Sir Thomas Warner 1648, the first Governor of St. Kitts and then onto Brimstone Hill Fortress. Step back into the past and the fantasies of your mind as you take in amazing information and enjoy an eclectic collection of artefacts and memorabilia on display that were part of everyday life hundreds of years ago as you stroll through the museum/orientation and other viewing rooms, many of which hold the secrets of thousands of sacrificed lives that took to build this remarkable feat of mankind.
From the very top of the Fort you will enjoy, immensely, the beauty of the island’s highlands which features spectacular views of verdant rainforest volcanic mountain ranges, lush gullies, colourful coastal villages and the neighbouring Dutch islands of St. Eustatius and Saba. Depart Brimstone Hill for your scenic drive to Frigate Bay, locally known as the Beverly Hills of St. Kitts where photo opportunities abound as you step out at Timothy Hill and ‘’be blown away’’ by the breathtaking encompassing beauty of this charmed Look Out.
Your hilltop peninsula drive takes you to the Carambola Beach Club, a perfect place to enjoy a Caribbean culinary experience on a beach front. Celebrate your time in paradise on a tropical beach of sparkling sand and turquoise waters. Your awesome excursion concludes with a short picturesque drive back to the port.
