St. Kitts - Active Adventures

Live your eco-adventure dreams in the fertile fields of St. Kitts  

Lush rainforests with hidden waterfalls and secret St. Kitts Beach BikingSt. Kitts Beach Bikingtrails, brilliant green fields of sugarcane and a central mountain range dominated by Mt. Liamuiga are all packed into the shy 65sq mile St. Kitts. Pack your hiking shoes and prepare to get up close and personal with all this lush island has to offer.

Volcano Crater Adventures

If you're looking for a fun way to work off the midnight buffet, hike to the rim of Mt. Liamuiga - you'll be rewarded with a view of Crater Lake 700 ft below the rim and as well as an unbeatable vista of neighboring islands.

The climb is steep and tricky to maneuver at times - narrow ledges, tree roots and mud-covered trails - and will take you a healthy 5-7 hours roundtrip.

The tour guides at Greg's Safaris offer picnics at the rim and celebratory rum and juice at the end of the hike. The company is endorsed by a number of resorts on the island, cruise ships, major travel publications and us.

Dive Sites

St. Kitts boasts more than a dozen dive sites, complete with reefs and hundreds of underwater wrecks. Nag's Head is the best shallow-water dive site, St. Kitts DivingSt. Kitts Divingbut if you want to combine a snorkeling expedition with scuba-diving, Turtle Beach is your better choice. And if swimming with sharks, stingrays and lobsters floats your boat, head to Booby Shoals.

Book your dive excursion through your hotel or cruise or visit St. Kitts tourism. You can rent or buy just about everything you'll need on-site - except a decompression chamber.

Mountain Biking

The wind in your face, pumping your way across dozens of roads through cane fields, rainforests and abandoned plantations. St. Kitts is the ultimate combo package.

Most of the roads are long loops, suitable for beginners and intermediates, but some hills (combined with the heat) will surprise even the most ardent pedal pushers. Our advice? Bring lots of water and take breaks.

To rent a bike or find a guide, speak to your hotel or cruise ship concierge. Most guides offer free transfers from Frigate Bay and Basseterre with a bike rental.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
  • On Travel Advice for Visiting a New Country, NJB said "Hi Stacy, great article! Just wanted to say, you can get an international SIM card that works in multiple countries and on cruise ships. They're not quite as cheap as a SIM card from the country you're visiting, but they're cheaper than a roaming plan on your domestic SIM and will save you a lot of time if you're visiting several countries. I got mine from Telestial, which also offers a range of cheap travel phones and other useful products (adapters, etc)."
