Liamuiga; learn about our birds and flowers; engage in a variety of water sports; swim, snorkel and dive in our pristine waters.
A must for every visitor, this tour will expose you to the eventful history of the island, chosen by both the English and French as the site of their first settlements in the Caribbean. Admire the quaint but picturesque colonial architecture of Basseterre, the capital, and learn about the history of Independence Square and the Circus. Your tour will take you to Bloody Point scene of the final encounter between the Europeans and the Carib Indians, to Old Road, site of the first British settlement, to the Carib Petroglyphs and to Romney Manor with its luxuriant tropical gardens where, nowadays, local girls work at producing the artful batik cloth used for garments or many other decorative purposes. You will visit the imposing Brimstone Hill Fortress Museum and National Park (above), and the natural wonder known as Black Rocks.
