Superyachts at Christophe Harbour. Christophe Harbour is St. Kitts’ luxurious haven and where the 2019 St. Kitts Music Festival kicks off with a welcome reception on 25 June. Wander the boutiques, galleries and coffee shops of the harbour as the luxurious superyachts sail by.


Sightsee on the St. Kitts Scenic Railway. See the island as it should be seen; atop the last railway in the West Indies, across St. Kitts’ luscious landscape and with a tantalising glimpse into the island’s sugar plantation past.


Ring the bell at Brimstone Hill Fortress. With its lofty position looking out over the Caribbean Sea, 800ft above sea level, Brimstone Hill Fortress is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Trek right to the top and ring the Tower Bell!brimstone

The sunset at Salt Plage. Just a stone’s throw from Christophe Harbour and one of Condé Nast Traveller’s top 8 beachside cafes in the world, sink into a hammock to watch a spectacular sunset, enjoy a signature cocktail on the wooden boardwalk and gear up for the festival at the Escape Fete.

Visit Independence Square in Basseterre. Charming and quaint, St. Kitts’ capital Basseterre is where you can visit its historic Independence Square.


Fire-breathers at Frigate Bay. For dancing on the sand and feasting on grilled Kittitian delights whilst the fire-breathers do their thing, it has to be lively Frigate Bay.


Hike Mount Liamuiga. Not many people can lay claim to having climbed a volcano, but in St. Kitts you can do just that by hiking up the island’s highest peak- Mount Liamuiga.

Visit the Kim Collins Athletic Stadium. Named after track and field champion sprinter Kim Collins, the stadium will play host to the 23rd annual St. Kitts Music Festival, so you can party and sightsee at the same time!


Chilling at Cockleshell Bay Beach. St. Kitts is blessed with many beautiful beaches but one of the best has got to be Cockleshell Bay with its views out to Nevis, swaying palms and relaxed Kittitian vibe.
