During your stay at Nisbet Plantation, consider expanding your West Indies vacation to include our sister island. With its intoxicating natural beauty, white sand beaches and fascinating countryside, a day trip to St. Kitts is certainly worth your while! Below are some of our top recommendations for what to see and do.

1. Explore the Scenic Railway

Hop aboard this 30-mile journey around the island! Sip on rum punch and enjoy the on-board choir as you ride the tracks that were once used to transport sugar cane. This scenic route takes you beyond the beaches to provide an intimate view of St. Kitts.

2. Take a Hike

If you’ve conquered Nevis Peak, it’s time to tackle the 3,792 feet Mount Liamuiga. This dormant volcano is home to tropical rainforests, and the view from the mile-wide crater is unforgettable!

3. Swim with Dolphins

While Nevis is home to thousands of vervet monkeys, St. Kitts offers the opportunity to interact with incredible marine mammals. From receiving high-fives and hugs to splurging for the “Belly Ride,” you will be captivated by St. Kitts’ friendly dolphins.

4. Zipline through Nature

Opt for a high-flying expedition through St. Kitts’ rain forest. With Sky Safari, several tour options are available to accommodate any thrill-seeker.

5. See the Sights

Housing one of the best preserved forts in the Americas, Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For the ultimate photo-opp, climb to the top of the slopes to see six other distant islands or simply stroll the grounds and fort interior.

St. Kitts is only a boat ride away! Using the Sea Bridge ferry, transport a rental car to experience every part of this two-island nation. Or, catch a lift with the passenger-only boat or water taxi. Our staff at Nisbet Plantation will be happy to help arrange transportation and recommend additional activities for your St. Kitts day trip.
