A little History

A lively centre of Basseterre! Some great little bars on the second floor that overlook the square are a great place for people watching on a hot day!

I think this area could to something more, but it's just a few businesses here on this one strip and there isn't much else once you get past the banks and places trying to sell you a t-shirt. I think you should not waste any time here, that is unless you really love old rusty clocks. Take it or leave... More

Just opposite the Port Zante, located upstairs is the Circus Grill restaurant/bar. The food is fairly standard touristy food, but well done and at reasonable prices. On our first visit we waited for quite a long time for food to arrive when it wasn't very busy. When we returned one evening the menu had much more to offer and service... More

It's a pretty basic square with shopping and restaurants. Nothing really standout or remarkable, but worth walking around a bit if you want to get off your cruise ship for a bit.

If you want to experience downtown Saint Kitts, drop into Circus Grill (at the circle) in the center of town. Depending on the time of day, you may see a lot of activity down below in the street and it gives you a real flare for Caribbean life style. Food and service are ok.

This little square is extremely busy. It has many shops and restaurants and very few photo ops. I will tell you to keep your wallet close due to excessive amount of pan handlers.
