Board your specially modified 4x4 Land Rover and head inland for a scenic drive through quaint villages and then up into the cool mountain rainforests. Just 18 miles long and five miles wide, this charming island features a variety of terrain, due to the volcanic peaks that formed its topography. As you travel off-road into the island’s interior, you will explore the lush rainforest where it is possible to see troops of sociable green monkeys that inhabit the area in groups of seven to 80, as well as the spectacular variety of exotic tropical flora and fauna.
At Bayfords, a private mountaintop property 1,000 feet above sea level, enjoy picture-perfect views over the island’s rainforest and quilted coastline, including the capital city of Basseterre and sister island Nevis. Here, you will be served a refreshing local fruit juice. Be sure to bring your camera for exquisite photo opportunities of your surroundings!
Your journey of discovery continues through the mountains to the opposite side of the island, where quaint villages and the simple, country life of St. Kitts will charm you. Going through the village of Cayon, see the historic St. Mary’s Church as well as traditional village homes and farmers’ gardens as you head for South Friars.
Drive along the windswept Atlantic coastline as you head towards the beach for a refreshing dip in the Caribbean Sea. Relax and unwind on the warm sand, go for a leisurely swim off the golden-sand beach, or just beachcomb before returning to port.
