Still relatively unknown and off the tourist trail, sister islands St Kitts & Nevis are beautiful castaway islands rich in history and full of cultural hot spots to explore. Here are our Top 5 Experiences In St Kitts & Nevis:

Brimstone Hill Fortress
Situated almost 800 ft above sea level, this remarkable fortress is one of the best preserved and most dramatic in the entire Caribbean. Constructed over the course of 100 years between the 1690s and 1790s and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Brimstone Hill was the site of many dramatic battles between the British and the French as both nations sought to assert their control of the lucrative Caribbean colonies.

Step aboard the scenic railway
You don’t have to be a train spotter or a railway enthusiast to enjoy this unique and beautiful train journey. Built in the early 20th Century to deliver sugar cane from the fields to the sugar mill in the capital city of Basseterre, the railway now provides visitors with a fascinating way to see St Kitts from the comfort of custom-made, open air carriages

Stroll the streets of Charlestown
This delightful town is one of the best remaining examples of the colonial era in the Caribbean. Much of Charlestown looks exactly as it did hundreds of years ago and you’ll see many examples of beautiful 18th and 19th Century colonial buildings.

Visit the Botanical Garden
Lying in the shadow of Mount Nevis, this five-acre garden is a wonderful, tranquil oasis full of tropical flowers and shrubs, orchid terraces and water lily ponds. The gardens are situated on land originally belonging to the Montpelier Estates where, further up the road, a young Horatio Nelson married Fanny Nisbet in 1787.

The Horatio Nelson Museum
Offering a fascinating glimpse into the past, this museum displays original artifacts and memorabilia from the life and times of British Naval Admiral, Lord Horatio Nelson, who visited Nevis in the 18th Century.
