St. Kitts has never been one of our favourite islands but I would recommend a trip to Brimstone Fort. Very historically interesting and if you can handle all the steps to the top, the views are breathtaking.

I absolutely love St. Kitts -- discovered it in January of this year and have been there twice since -- and going back the end of October. Check out the Scenic Train... it's the old narrow-guage sugar cane train that now transports tourists in comfort of a tour around the island. If you can do a combination rail & sail, that's even better -- you see all of the island from two different view points.
If you just want a day at the beach, go down the penninsula - Cockleshell Beach is well known
If you just want to shop, the port area has some very nice shops & restaurants right at the ship.
Be advised the Cockleshell beach is at the very southern tip of the island, so you are in for a long and expensive cab ride. On the plus side you do pass through some really neat scenery where you can see both the Atlantic and Caribbean at the same time.
