St. Kitts and Nevis Flag St. Kitts & Nevis: Things To Do

St. Kitts and Nevis undoubtedly rank among the most naturally beautiful of the Caribbean islands, and that beauty lends itself quite well to a wide range of outdoor activities. The islands' tall, volcanic mountains, covered with lush vegetation, are perfect for hiking and exploring, while the inviting azure-blue waters of the Caribbean are ideal for swimming, sailing, fishing, and diving.



On St. Kitts, the best white sand beaches are on the southern end of the island. These include Sand Bank Bay, Frigate Bay, Friar's Bay, White House Bay, Banana Bay, and Cockleshell Bay. Of these, Sand Bank Bay is probably the best. The eastern side of the island, facing the Atlantic has surf, and the northern part of St. Kitts has black, volcanic-sand beaches. Nevis has the justly celebrated Pinney's Beach, as well as a number of other fine, smaller beaches (including the lovely stretch of snad opposite Nelson's Spring).


At Meadville (Craddock Rd., Charlestown; phone: 469-5235) you can rent both mountain bikes and racing bicycles.


Cruising and sailing are becoming increasingly popular in St. Kitts & Nevis, and for good reason--in addition to the tradewinds scuffing off the Atlantic, these lush volcanic islands offer sailors remarkable views. There are many local captains and boats available for hire, by the day or week.


The islands' three golf courses, two of them professional caliber, are uncrowded and challenging. The beautiful Trent Jones course on Nevis is internationally ranked.

Hiking and Mountain Climbing

Both St. Kitts and Nevis have a good many trails leading into the mountains and rain forests. The local guides are especially knowledgeable here; they will instruct hikers on the medicinal uses of native plants, discuss the islands' history and culture, and identify local flora and fauna. You may arrange for a guide through your hotel.

Horseback Riding

Most hotels will make arrangements for you. Trips on St. Kitts include beach riding or riding to the rain forest. For those who are more interested in observing than participating, there are twelve races a year at the Indian Castle Race Track on Nevis (see Calendar of Events).

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving are only recently becoming established on the islands, despite that fact that their coastal waters hide dozens of unexplored shipwrecks.

Sport Fishing

Although sport fishing has not traditionally numbered among the islands' favored activities, careful conservation effortshave succeeded in attracting serious game fish to the waters surrounding these islands.


On St. Kitts, tennis junkies should check out Jack Tar Village, where the Davis Park is hosted. Jack Tar has the best internal facilities, with clay, grass and tar court surfaces. Non-guests are welcome to take advantage of all the facilities by purchasing a day pass. You can also check out the local tennis scene at the St. Kitts Bridge and Tennis Club (at Fortlands in Basseterre; phone: 465-2938): and the St. Kitts Lawn Tennis Club (Victoria Rd., Basseterre; phone: 465-2051). On Nevis, the Four Seasons has professional coaches from the world-famous Peter Burwash International. There are also lighted tennis courts for night-time play. For an additional charge, non-guests can play and also take advantage of round-robin tournaments.

Water Skiing

Waterskiing takes place at Frigate Bay, on the Caribbean side (at Roy Gumbs Watersports; phone:465-8050). Jet skiis can be rented at Kenneth's Dive Center.


Roy Gumbs Watersports has board rentals and lessons. Tropical Surf on Turtle Beach (phone: 465-2380) also has board rentals.
