St Kitts Shore Excursion: Panoramic Tour with Optional Brimstone Hill Fortress Visit

Brimstone Hill Fortress

In three hours, you can make the most of your time in port in St. Kitts and see some of the island’s best attractions and most beautiful sights on a panoramic tour shore excursion.

First, you’ll drive to the city of Basseterre, where you’ll visit Independence Square, formerly known as Pall Mall Square, and have time to purchase a few gifts if you’d like.

Then, continue along a scenic coastal road to Romney Manor, home of Caribelle Batik fabric. You can see the art of dyeing and drawing on Sea Island cotton and purchase dresses, wall hangings and other accessories at the on-site gift shop.

Your next stop is Brimstone Hill Fortress, a UNESCO heritage site. The entrance fee required toward the continued restoration of this magnificent fortress is included in the tour price (if option selected).

You’ll then enjoy another scenic drive to Port Zante, where your cruise ship is docked. Spend any extra time you have shopping and admiring the lovely view before getting back on your ship and leaving St. Kitts.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to Basseterre for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Our guide was a local and very knowledgeable of the island history as well as plants. He was very interesting to listen to. He explained the island well. The tour was leisurely placed and provided sufficient time at each place. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. Brimstone Hill Fortress is worth the visit, the views are outstanding.

Great tour in a beautiful country. Highly recommend doing the optional Brimstone Hill, it was fantastic. Disclaimer-You need decent mobility to scale the fortress. Very high steps and narrow walkways, but definitely worth it! Real cannons are still present along with a nice museum!

We loved St. Kitts. This island was a tropical rainforest with monkeys. The Brimstone Hill Fortress and the tropical gardens are a must see. We also went and saw where there were large lava rocks where the Caribbean ocean separates from the Atlantic ocean. Would highly recommend it if it's your first time to St. Kitts.
