Brimstone Hill Fortress (St. Kitts)#1 in Best Things To Do in St. Kitts & Nevis
- 0.0Food Scene
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. If history is more your forte than photography, then you should note that Brimstone Hill Fortress is one of the best-preserved forts of the Americas. It was designated a national park in 1985 and became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999.
According to recent travelers, Brimstone Hill Fortress is worth more than just a stop on an island tour. If you have the time you should devote at least two hours to walking its grounds: many were impressed with how well maintained it is and the stunning views it provides. The fortress, which is located in northwestern St. Kitts, is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Entry costs $10 for adults and $5 for children. Head to the fort's website for more information and assistance on planning your visit.
