  • Address: Basseterre
One of the oldest towns in the Eastern Caribbean, Basseterre is the capital of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis in the West Indies, making it an excellent jumping off point for exploration in the area. Owing to centuries of French and British colonial rule, this small hub of a now sovereign state is a delightful combination of European history and culture and island living, tourism and opportunities for repose. 

Basseterre’s small, protected harbor is its most distinctive physical feature. The city itself is dived into two main areas, The Circus, which is geared towards tourists, and Independence Square, which contains the cathedral, courthouse and most of the older buildings. As the cultural and commercial center of the Federation, there are an assortment of iconic regional businesses, breweries, craft markets, museums, monuments, heritage sites, eateries and pubs. Points of interest include St. George's Anglican Church, which has endured fires, demolition, and hurricanes since 1670, the National Museum, Fort Thomas, and the Springfield Cemetery and Chapel.

Practical Info

Due to its tropical latitude and lush green surrounding hills, St. Kitts is an ideal travel destination year-round. Both the Circus and Independence Square are excellent locales for the entire family, with plenty of options appropriate for children and adults alike.

Transportation around the city and surrounding area is accessible and affordable, with 5 bus lines servicing the Ferry Terminal, local colleges, and other significant destinations.
