Recently I’ve been riding high and planning my next getaway. If you know me well, you know I love to travel! Over the past 6 years I’ve had the opportunity to travel most of Europe, a few states in the USA and of course Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. Out of those experiences, Trinidad has always been the most enjoyable. Call me biased, but to me nothing beats the vibe, culture and overall experience of the Caribbean. Being of Trinidadian descent, unfortunately Trinidad is the only Caribbean island I’ve ever visited. On the hunt for something new and fairly undiscovered I came across the beautiful twin islands of St Kitts and Nevis. I’ve always felt that these lesser known islands have so much to offer. Below I’ve created my to do list:
Montpelier Plantation & Beach
I’m loving this old plantation for accommodations. Located in Charlestown, this historic 18th-century sugar plantation is an award-winning hotel in St Kitts and Nevis. Set high in the hills of Nevis, the rambling Relais & Châteaux property’s 19 rooms and cottages all look out onto the Caribbean Sea. Another reason I love these smaller islands, is because of the intimate look and feel of the accommodations. My goal is to experience the culture and entertainment of the island in an authentic way.
Always wanted to do this. Great way to create memories with friends and family while sailing, snorkeling or having a cookout on the beach. Open bar, friendly crew and great island music will definitely make this an unforgettable day unlike any other sailing experience.
The Strip: Frigate Bay
The Strip has become the undisputed number one hot-spot on the island. The Monkey Bar, with its open-air dance floor, brought the first wave of party lovers in the early ‘90s, and has since grown to include a fine restaurant, is located towards the eastern end of The Strip. Opening daily at 10:00 am, enjoy lunch at the restaurant, or come back for live steelpan music on Friday nights.
Capital City: Basseterre
The capital city of any Caribbean island is the heart and lungs of the nation, full of entertainment, excitement and culture amongst other things. The capital, Basseterre, is a delightful mix of small shops and manageable malls, including the Pelican Mall and the TDC Mall, carrying a wide assortment of Kittitian delights and merchandise.
