You feel like you are living the past. Great history. Views are beyond words. The drive there is very interesting and you see a lot of the real islanders. Loved the gift shop. Prices reasonable. Local merchandise. Do not miss Brimstone Hill.

Lovely spot to visit. If your are touring the island then this is a must see. Going all the way to the top is something you have to do. There are caves with historical facts and images that explain the history.

Brimstone is well worth a morning to explore. Views are incredible and the thought that hundreds of cannons were dragged up this mountain is a wonder. Be prepared to spend several hours taking in the history of this Fort.

This was a highlight of our tour of St. Kitt's. The drive up is very narrow - we were glad we weren't driving. We had about 45 minutes to explore the grounds. Terrific views of the island! A must see!

Brimstone Hill Fortress was one stop on our fantastic island tour with Pereira Tours. There were 2 levels to investigate. Take the time to view the video and then take a walk around the 2 levels to soak in the history of the fort and appreciate the beautiful views of the ocean. Awesome!

We visited this fortress during a day trip of St. Kitts with Thenford Grey tours and we are so glad that they made a stop at this fortress. The walk up to the top is not bad at all and once you get to the top there is an amazing view that is worth the walk up. A lot of... More

Beautiful views of the ocean can be seen from one of the best fortresses we visited on this vacation. Warning to those with limited mobility...the climb up to it can be hard on those with bad knees. My husband estimated the ramp up to it as about 45 degree angle and he had to stop several times. The fortress has... More

This place was one of several stops we made while on a Grand Tour with Grey's Island Excursions. It was so beautiful! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and give yourself plenty of time to snap pictures and take in the views. The walk/climb up into the fortress about wore me out but it was well worth it to see...

Our tour guide from Grey's Tour Service took us to this fortress and it presented us with some of the most amazing views. Once you got to the top, there were credible viewpoints of the ocean as well as great photo opts of the fortress itself. Brimstone Hill National Park is a definite must-see if visiting St. Kitts.

The best views of the ocean as well as the mountainside. Plenty to look at with great detail to the history of the fort. Well worth the drive!
