St. Kitts & Nevis are each an island and together a country in the Caribbean.

Impressions from my Vlog

Basseterre

The capital Basseterre offers a small town center. Worth seeing was a bell tower and the museum of St. Kitts & Nevis.

Brimstone Hill Fortress

The Brimstone mountain fortress is a huge castle west of Basseterre.

Nevis

Nevis is one of the two islands and is connected by a ferry with Basseterre. I made a day trip and explored at the city of Charlestown.

Travel Tips

Planning

  • I stayed 4 days on St. Kitts & Nevis.
    • Day 1: Arrival by plane from Sint Maarten (Netherlands).
    • Day 2: In the morning I made a day trip by ferry to Nevis. In the afternoon, I visited Basseterre and the Museum of St. Kitts & Nevis.
    • Day 3: In the morning I made a trip to the Brimstone mountain fortress and relaxed in the afternoon.
    • Day 4: Departure by plane to Saint John’s (Antigua & Barbuda).
  • I used for my planning and can recommend the Lonely Planet for the Caribbean Islands.

Transport

  • Getting there:
    • Saint Kitts has an international airport.
    • Cruise ships
  • Budget transport from the airport to the city:
    • At the airport are only taxis and no public transport.
    • The road to Basseterre is just a few minutes walk away and you can take a minibus from there.
  • Budget transport on Saint Kitts & Nevis:
    • Minibuses go from Basseterre in all directions.
    • Departure as soon as the bus is full, which took only 5 to 10 minutes.
    • To get on, lift your arm up the roadside.
    • To get off, say “Bus Stop”.
    • There are a few bus stops.  They also stop on request on the way. The driver let me out directly on the road to the Brimstone mountain fortress. On the way back I took the next bus at the intersection.
  • Kitts & Nevis are connected by a ferry.

Accommodation

  • I found the most budget accommodation on AirBNB.
  • I can recommend as location the capital Basseterre. It’s centrally located and you can explore the rest of the island cost-effective with buses. In Basseterre is also the ferry port to get to Nevis.
  • I stayed in an AirBNB within 15-minute walk to the airport. It had good reviews and I went to the capital with a minibus that drove every few minutes.

Do you have questions to plan your trip or suggestions? I'm looking forward to your commentary.
