Essential St. Kitts
This beautiful scenic Yachting Land Adventure includes visits to two world-class destinations- Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park and Romney Manor Botanical Gardens, as well as an interesting drive through historical Basseterre, with brief stops. No visit to St. Kitts is complete without a visit to Romney Gardens and Caribelle Batik Studios. This 12- acre Garden setting is quite simply stunning. It is at this glorious location that local artists produce the fabric and apparel for which Caribelle Batik has become widely acclaimed. The garden setting and picturesque experience is a photographer’s dream. The memory will last a lifetime. Explore a 300- year- old Fortress, perched on a 40 acre hill-top 750 feet above sea level. The first cannons were mounted on Brimstone Hill in 1690 as the English and French fought for control of the island. The next 100 years saw the intermittent construction of an amazing work of architectural and engineering genius. This magnificent structure is well-preserved and provides spectacular panoramic views of the coastline, countryside and five neighboring islands. The Brimstone Hill Fortress is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is well-presented. There is a visitor center, museum, gift shop and well-informed and uniformed staff in attendance Added to these two (2) memorable stops is a drive through beautiful Basseterre. This historic Capital City is a reminder of an original Caribbean town. Observe the traditional French architecture and Victorian structures. Old churches, West Indian cottages and a former slave market are also included in this interesting driving tour of Basseterre.
