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!

Our last night on the island and we decided to leave the Marriott and go downtown to pick up some souvenirs. Taxi cost $12.00. We got there too late not wanting to give up pool time. It was 4:00pm. We went into crowed shops that was a mad house because of the last minute cruise people. As soon as 5:00pm... More

Each time we have visited St. Kitts we ate at the open air restaurants, Circus Grill or Ballahoo, and watched the hustle bustle of the Circus. The cabs are moving in and out. The traffic, though conjested, manages to get through. There are bankers in suits, tourists in shotrs, Kittitians moving about at midday talking and greeting, and one guy... More

Loved every minute of my solo walkabout here. Hubby not so clever so I went on my own. Glorious sunshine and the town itself was very welcoming, no hassle whatsoever, colourful pastel buildings which look great in this light, not too busy, friendly folk everywhere, I was left alone and never troubled by any one whatsoever. I wandered round the... More

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.
