Imagine an island that has set aside more than a quarter of its land as a National Park, with a rainforest that is actually expanding in size rather than shrinking. This is St. Kitts. An island surrounded by new and untouched dive sites, marked by massive beds of coral, teeming with fish of every stripe and color.
Here you will be surrounded by wildlife, from chattering vervet monkeys and scurrying families of mongoose, to roaming cows, goats, and black-bellied sheep.
Here you can drive or hike through the Valley of Giants, zip line over the rainforest or climb up to sit yourself in the cradle of Sofa Rock, once the very cap of a now dormant volcano that you can climb to the very edge of, then be guided down 1000 feet to its steaming crater floor.
Once called the Gibraltar of the West Indies for its domination of 18th century battles, St. Kitts so honors its past with careful restoration that the UN has designated The Brimstone Hill Fortress & National Park a World Heritage Site, and it is a living museum of historical exploration.
Whatever you do, leave no stone unturned. Fill your heart and soul with new experiences on this island of a thousand treasures. And make St. Kitts your next great discovery.
From the tee, look east toward an endless sea. To the north, a dormant volcano is coated with a rich coat of tropical foliage. Few sounds permeate the setting, save for the soft rush of the perpetual surf. This is the sport of gold on St. Kitts. Here you will play the 18 championship holes designed by Tom McBroom at the St. Kitts Royal Golf Club. And you will find that few fairways in the Americas can match the signature features of this challenging course. Picturesque oceanfront fairways, four tee choices, and 6,911 yards of tropical golf are intertwined with the volcanic landscape of the island. Take special care on 15, 16, and 17 where the Atlantic Ocean creates a formidable water hazard. Two of the course’s front nine holes play next to the Caribbean Sea. Where else can you play a round of golf while overlooking not one, but two great bodies of water? The Royal Golf Club features a full-service, pro shop with brand-name golf wear, equipment, and accessories.
