Our vacations in St. Kitts and Nevis

Around St. Kitts by Car and Train

The island of St. Kitts is small enough to explore its attractions in one day. We took a tour around the island, half by minibus and half by the scenic railway, a former sugar plantation train refitted for tourist transportation. This leisurely day-long tour offers visits to the island's beautiful garden estates, interesting handicraft centres and to the gigantic Brimstone Hill fortress, a UNESCO heritage site. And on the way we passed through many picturesque country villages and had a close-up view of St. Kitt's dormant volcano Mount Liamuiga and blackened lava rocks at the Atlantic ocean shore.
