Life in St. Kitts and Nevis

Upon arrival at Robert L. Bradshaw airport in St. Kitts I was met by my dutch couchsurfing host Lennart, who had come to pick me up on his scooter. He also drive me around the Southern Part of the Island, making the most of the two days I had there.

We went all the way to the Southernmost point, to the harbour where the boats to the second island, Nevis, went from. From there it was just a short drive to my favorite place on the island, the Reggae Bar at Turtle Beach. They had some good lunch, cold beers and a nice, quiet beach. It used to be famous for having a giant pig called Wilbur walking around, but unfortunately he had passed away s couple of years ago, but I believe he was there with us in spirit.

Second up was Shipwreck bar at South Friars Bay where there were lots of monkeys running around, famous from the BBC episode where it shows how they steal drinks from tourists and get absolutely smashed (watch it here).

Last up was “the Strip” which was a beach full of bars where there were lots of American students partying. Apparently the American universities pay no tax in St. Kitts making their programs more affordable. The last night on the island was spent in my hammock just five mins from the airport, where there was a celebration of the first day of Sugar Mas (the St.Kitts national carnival) so parades were going through the streets right next to my camp almost the whole night until I left for my Dominica flight early the next morning.
