BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS

 

Basseterre is the capital of Saint Kitts on the southwestern coast of Saint Kitts Island.  It is part of the West Indies chain of small Caribbean islands that form the Leeward Islands.

Basseterre can be found in a small protected harbor and is one of the Eastern Caribbean’s oldest towns. The city lies within the large Basseterre Valley and is almost completely surrounded by lush rainforests, hills, and mountains.  There is a dormant volcano in the center of Saint Kitts Island.

Cruise ships dock at Port Zante located within walking distance to the Historical Old Town of Basseterre.  Due to centuries of French and British colonial rule, the city is now an appealing blend of European influence and relaxed island charm.
