Bustling Basseterre

A contrast to the beach

The capital of St Kitts, bustling Basseterre is not only home to a large cruise-ship terminal but also boasts a laidback, downtown feel perfect for those who want to pair their beach break with a dimension of culture and heritage.

Head to Basseterre and visit the historic sites of Independence Square, Berkley Memorial, St. George's Anglica Church and the Cenotaph war memorial, and be sure to head to the historic Romney Manor where the art of Batik has been taught for many years.
