Free Things to Do

Free Things to Do

Brimstone Hill Fortress – This “Gibraltar of the West Indies” should be included on one day’s itinerary for its photo ops. If you climb to its top slopes on a clear day, you can see up to six other islands in the distance. Or you could tour the fort’s interior, stroll the grounds and snap images of nearby towns in the distance or the vibrant hues of the Caribbean Sea. [travel]

Oualie Beac – Try correctly pronouncing the name of this beach (“wah-lee”) before you start enjoying the free-flowing margaritas from the on-site beach bar. And you’ll want to eat and drink on this beach – Oualie’s chairs and hammocks are free to use as long as you do. You can also enjoy some spectacular snorkelling in the clear waters and there are rental kiosks for other water sports as well. [travel]

Pinney’s Beach – On Nevis’ west edge, north of Charles town, lies one of the most talked about beaches of the two islands. The smooth saffron-colored sands of Pinney’s often grace the glossy pages of travel publications, and to most travellers, the beach lives up to its hype. There are several beach snack shacks nearby and ample parking as well. [travel]

Cockleshell Bay – One of the more popular beaches in St. Kitts, Cockleshell Bay is on the island’s southern tip facing Nevis, which means it offers great views of its sister island. The beach’s stark white sands contrast with the calm jewel-toned waves that lap up against travellers’ feet. Cockleshell Bay stretches across 2 miles and is also home to a few hip beach bars (including a highly praised reggae joint) and seafood eateries. Visitors warn that the sands can get crowded when cruise ships are in port and suggest heading here early to stake out some prime beach real estate. [travel]

Frigate Bay – Are you looking for a beautiful beach with a lively atmosphere? Frigate Bay is the beach for you. Frigate hums with activity day and night, since it’s located so close to the islands’ best nightlife and shopping, not to mention some of the best hotels. [travel]

Royal St. Kitts Golf Club – The par-71 Royal St. Kitts Golf Club has 10 water hazards, 80 bunkers and stretches across 125-irrigated acres overlooking the sea. The views are incredible and the holes are challenging, according to recent golfers. Travellers add that the course is kept in great shape and that the staff members are friendly and helpful. [travel]

St. Kitts Scenic Railway – This railway was originally built in the early 1900s to transport sugar cane from the fields to the capital of Basseterre. Today, the train winds through miles of St. Kitts mountains and takes tourists on a scenic (and informative) journey. The railway cars are double-decker style, with an open-air top deck offering 360-degree views and ample photo opportunities. Along the way, you’ll learn about the old sugar cane estates, see small villages and farms, and enjoy impressive panoramas of the sea, cliffs and verdant vegetation. [travel]

Festivals

Festivals

Battle of St Kitts reenactment – This St. Kitts and Nevis holiday held annually on March 28, takes place over three days at Brimstone Hill Fort. History comes alive as the famous battle between British and French forces in 1782 is reenacted here. It is a great spectacle that allows you to imagine this aspect of colonial life in the 18th century. The real battle actually took place on January 25th and 26th but the modern reenactment takes place in March. [iexplore]

St Kitts Music Festival – An internationally acclaimed music festival held over the last weekend of June each year. It has been running for 16 years, and now many international artists come to perform at the festival, playing pop, jazz, and reggae, amongst other styles. There is no onsite accommodation at the festival, so visitors usually stay in nearby hotels. Tickets for the festival can sell out months before, so it is worth purchasing early on if you intend on going. [iexplore]

Culturama – This is the smaller island of Nevis’ answer to the main annual festival held in St Kitts. It is held over the last weekend of July, and features similar music, street dancing, parades, and pageants. [iexplore]

Independence Day – Independence Day is a public holiday that celebrates the independence and formation of the sovereign nation of St Kitts and Nevis. During the week either side of the day communities have a schedule of events including parades, picnics, and formal cocktail receptions. [iexplore]

Latin Fiesta – This is a more recent addition to the annual festival calendar, and is growing in popularity. Held over the last weekend in October, the festival showcases Latin culture through film, music, and dancing. Some events are free to join. [iexplore]

St Kitts Carnival – A fun festival held from the middle of December until early January each year, with lively events happening over the Christmas period. For example, a major highlight of the festival is “J’ouvert morning,” whereby steel and brass bands parade through the streets playing music that many people dance to. The music goes well into the early hours of the morning. It is an extremely lively festival, and the basis is to celebrate St Kitts and Nevis’ proud Caribbean culture. [iexplore]
