Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis
Greens in every shade spring from the rolling hills of St. Kitts, an island ripe with eco-tourism adventures. In the port city of Basseterre, you’ll find centuries of history to explore in impressive estates and photo-worthy monuments like the Brimstone Hill Fortress, one of the best-preserved military structures in the Americas. Escape to the unhurried sister island, Nevis, for smooth golden beaches and clear-water snorkeling. Six ferries are available to take you on the 45-minute trip between the islands.
Fun Things to Do:
- Hop on the West Indies’ last railway - double decker railcars that travel along a line built a century ago to transport sugarcane across the island. You’ll pass historical estates and countryside filled with tall wild sugarcane.
- Casual beach spots with super-fresh seafood are your best bet for lunch. Order some spiny lobster or conch, grilled over an open fire. More adventurous eaters could try West Indian specialties like pepper pot, Arawak chicken and goat water stew. For a quick snack, vendors sell sugarcane stalks to chew on.
- Port Zante has over 60 shops where you can score deals on watches, jewelry, diamonds, and gemstones. Or you can head to the nearby Pelican Shopping Mall, a collection of souvenir shops designed to look like a traditional Caribbean street.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Charlotte Amalie is one of the world’s most beautiful harbors with blue waters peppered with sailboats and green hills dotted with quaint little cottages. Just outside the lively port town, you’ll find ribbons of powdery sand beaches dotted with hammocks. Cruise to St. Thomas and explore colonial landmarks like Blackbeard’s Castle or raise a pint of the local lager at quaint microbreweries. And when it’s time to fuel up, you’ll find plenty of beachside bars serving conch fritters, johnnycakes, and coconut patties. St. Thomas may technically be part of the U.S., but with its colorful markets, unspoiled beaches, and the ever-present sound of steel drums, you’ll feel a world away.
Fun Things to Do:
- St. Thomas is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Ditch the crowds for some prime snorkeling at Sapphire Beach. And of course, no visit is complete without a stop at Magen’s Bay, named one of the world’s most beautiful beaches by National Geographic.
- St. Thomas’s central mountain range offers endless opportunities to snag the ultimate panoramic selfie. Head to Government Hill, Drake’s Seat on Skyline Drive, and Mountain Top, which rises over 1,500 feet above sea level for the most bragworthy views.
- St. Thomas is a foodie’s haven, and you’ll find no shortage of bars and pubs serving up local favorites like St. John Brewers Virgin Islands beer and Blackbeard Ale™. West Indian fare, like callaloo (sautéed leafy greens) and Johnnycakes (cornmeal flatbreads), is a staple. And you absolutely can’t leave without trying some chocolate dipped coconut patties. In restaurants and bars, you may wish to add a gratuity of 15-20% to your bill if service was especially good.
CocoCay®, The Bahamas
If you think you know The Bahamas, think again. This is CocoCay®, a private eco-certified island with radiant blue waters just begging to be explored. Pristine beaches of snowy white sand beneath your toes. And thrills around every corner. Grab a mask and snorkel and explore a mesmerizing underwater world of stingrays, tropical reefs and sunken wrecks. Catch full throttle thrills as you race along Great Stirrup Cay Lighthouse and Starfish Alley on a waverunner. Hike the island on a guided eco-tour that leads to the secluded Barefoot Beach for some afternoon kayaking. And take some time to unwind with a Coco Loco at the floating beach bar.
Fun Things to Do:
- Unwind in style for the ultimate beach day. Soak up the sun, feel the ocean breeze and watch the waves gently roll in from your own private day bed, beach bungalow, or ocean view cabana. These rentals include floating beach mats, towels and bottled water.
- Go full octane on an exhilarating tour around the Berry Islands on your own personal watercraft. Hop on and see Bahamian sights like the Great Stirrup Cay Lighthouse, Slaughter Harbor, Starfish Alley and the abandoned island community of Cistern Cay.
- Get ready to dig into a mouthwatering Caribbean twist on traditional barbecue. At lunchtime, you’ll find BBQ favorites, tasty side dishes and fresh fruit. Plus, this is the only place where you can order the famous Coco Loco – a tropical frozen drink spiked with coconut rum.
