Best tour ? Anything to Brimstone Hill Fort I just loved the place back in April. Out of St Thomas, St Lucia, Antigua, Barbados, and Dominica...St Kitts was my favorite island on the Southern Caribbean itinerary that I took. Others that I talked with felt the same way.
BEACHES? Sorry that I'm very little help there. I might be wrong ( happens quit a bit ) but I didn't get the impression that St Kitts is much of a beach destination. Reading in Carnival's 2008 shore excursions booklet...
Mountain Bike & Beach
Town & Frigate beach
Those are the only St Kitts excursions listed where one might get wet.
PAST TRIPS= Enchanted Capri
Carnival: Inspiration, Legend, Valor, Destiny, Holiday, Triumph, Splendor, Fantasy
HAL: Maasdam twice, Statendam, Oosterdam
Water was pretty rough when we were at St. Kitts. Did go all the way down to Cockleshell Beach - very souther tip across from Nevis. Nice view, but wasn't such a nice beach. It was quite a treat to be at points with the Atlantic and Caribbean are both in view - the island is that narrow! If you decide to go try to get a group - the taxi down and back was not cheap.
