St Kitts is an island of ancient sights and incredibly beautiful nature
Those wishing to spend an amazing holiday look for places that are ready to please not only with a variety of resorts, but also with attractions. It is quite understandable, because you do not want to spend a few weeks swimming in water, no matter how chic and delightful they are.
St Kitts - a dream holiday
Your holiday will be filled with amazing emotions if you visit the magical island of St Kitts. Situated in the Caribbean Sea, you'll enjoy breathtaking excursions and unforgettable holidays on incredibly picturesque beaches.
What do you know about the island of St Kitts?
This place appeared on maps thanks to the efforts of Christopher Columbus. Long before then, the island was inhabited by the Carib Indians and they lived here for thousands of years.
In their time the Spaniards did not want to establish their own authority over the territory, so the first settlements from European countries appeared here only in the 19th century.
With the onset of the following centuries, France, as well as Great Britain fought hard for the right to become the owner of the "tidbit". As a result, the most beautiful territory went to the British.
The island of St Kitts. Location Features
This amazing place is located on the slopes of the bulky volcanic formation of Liamuig. A flat peninsula with many salt lakes adjoins it from the south-eastern part.
The central part of St Kitts Island is saturated with dense tropical forests that enhance the mountainous zone. The northern part is adorned with huge plantations of sugar cane and many other crops, while the slopes in the southern zone will delight the eye with delightful orchards. The central part of the island is perfectly hydrated, thanks to the numerous rivers flowing down the mountain slopes.
This indescribable natural beauty will mesmerise any holidaymaker, but if you are planning to visit St Kitts, don't limit yourself to this, as there are plenty of interesting places to visit.
A little excursion around the island
The historic Scenic Railway is a delightful experience. During the three-hour trip around the island, holidaymakers will be able to see the most amazing and mysterious places. The excursion is organised by bus as well as by train. Historical and cultural sights, abandoned cane plantations and much more will be revealed to the tourists. More than 50 per cent of the journey is travelled by train, which has two floors. Such transport allows you to admire all the beauties of nature, tiny churches, ancient mills and even small towns. A leisurely train journey on a narrow track, which used to be used for transporting cane sugar, will leave a lasting memory.
One of St Kitts' most important holiday attractions, Black Rocks, located on the Atlantic coast, should not be excluded from the list of places to visit. Back in the day, these sharp rocks were assiduously honed by the ocean. They were formed by solidified lava, huge blocks of which ended up in the ocean.
This apocalyptic, incredibly beautiful landscape will cause a real delight, especially if you watch how powerful waves tend to the blocks and instantly break on these volcanic formations, turning into millions of drops. The unique landscape of these places will also attract the attention of holidaymakers.
Discovering the "art" of St Kitts
Surely many have come across the enchanting beauty of Caribbean batik. It is on this island that these masterpieces are created. If you manage to visit the batik factory, you will discover a lot of interesting things. It has been operating since 1974 and today it is one of the best production enterprises in its field.
A walk through some of the most delightful places
Brimstone Hill is a national park. It is also one of the main attractions of the island, and is adored by tourists. What attracts them is not the awe-inspiring and delicate beauty of the flora and fauna, but the very important military site of "Gibraltar of the West Indies" (the ancient name of the fort). Today, this military fortress is a Unesco-listed historical landmark.
Holidaymakers are also advised to visit the youngest capital, Basseterre, where you can admire authentic Victorian architecture. The city has an atmosphere of ancient times and mystery.
Beach holidays will also not leave indifferent those who are accustomed to the comfortable and fabulous atmosphere present on the coast.
St Kitts is a tourist island, which is always crowded. Of course, there are also corners where you can retreat and enjoy a romantic setting.
A delightful beach strip and perfectly developed infrastructure, the opportunity to engage in active holidays and enjoy all kinds of entertainment. The island of St Kitts is a unique place where both body and soul get what they want.
