My husband and I chose St. Kitts as our honeymoon destination because of its Caribbean location and because it had a World Heritage Site. Brimstone Hill was impressive and provided us with a spectacular view of the island! Ben is right - the island is not so touristy but I think tourism is gaining momentum, so hurry and visit!

My visit to Brimstone was no more than 15 minutes, but this imposing fortress took me back in time and I half-expected to see a ship bearing the Jolly Roger approaching the shores below. The fortress, perched atop a magnificently defensible hill, offers unmatched panoramic views of the verdant slopes of this small yet authentic island that didn't appear to have sold its soul to tourism just yet. I highly recommend renting a scooter and circling the island which is a feasable one day excursion
