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.

The entire island is only 64 miles around -- we have circled it - many times -- in less than 2 hrs.

We loved St. Kitts! The locals are very friendly and the scenery is breathtaking. I love the fact that its still unspoilt.

A website we found helpful was www.lizpereirastourstore.shutterfly.com
