The fortress is really well looked after and beautifully presented to depict the heritage of St Kitts. Its takes a bit of effort to climb the steep incline to the top but well worth the effort. The views are stunning - very glad I didn't miss out on this interesting landmark.

While touring St Kitts via cruise ship we decided to visity the Brimstone Hill Fortress being a history buff. Luckily we had a good driver as the road to fort is narrow and difficult to drive. The visitor center was so-so and the short video explained the history of the fort. The climb up to the fort can be difficult... More

The road up to the fort is narrow and steep, so I would definitely use local transportation. The fort is well maintained and worth the price of admission. Its like stepping back in time. Panoramic views that will truly take your breath away. The climb to the uppermost part of the fort maybe a little much if you are out... More

It has one of the best views of the Caribbean Sea, and on a good day, you can clearly see Saba, St Eustatius and even St Barthélemy! It also offer a magnificent panorama of Mt Liamuiga, and perhaps this is the highest point in St Kitts where you can drive up to. However if you aren't physically fit, be warned,... More

$10 US per person. Worth the money. Construction is truly remarkable, especially to consider is was made by hand in the 17th and 18th centuries at the top of a mountain. History is fascinating. Views are spectacular.

This fortress is truly a must see. It is restored to most of its original condition and the size, and the views are unbelievable. It is hard to imagine the effort that was needed to build such a fortress.

Came here while in port during our cruise, and I was so thrilled that I did. This is one part of the island that sits at a much higher altitude, so you get a stunning view of the island, and can make good use of the panoramic feature of your camera/ phone. Besides the view, the fort is well preserved,... More

Everything, about the fort that was in view, gave a real flavour of the history. But they should continue to refine the experience.

A well-preserved fort and interesting historical information about the island's past occupations by French and English, as well as the massacre of most of the natives. It is a tricky drive for a visitor--the road is quite steep and single lane in many places, so we recommend using a local taxi. Terrific views across the island and to nearby islands,... More
