The road on the south peninsula is steep and curvy. Very worth the drive! The view from Timothy Hill is spectacular- classic Caribbean. The beaches are all public. Can access from beach bars like Shipwreck or Reggae Beach, or use public access site to Sandy Bay Beach. No groceries or gas out this way so plan ahead though.

We came here after negotiating with the taxi group (there were six of us). Beautiful view. The viewing area is small but somehow about 12 different tour buses managed to park there at the same time. Quite a site, really worth it. St. Kitts has a lot to offer to travelers.

The view from Timothy Hill is unlike no other in the world. To see the point where the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea meet is unlike no other view you will ever see in your life.

If you're going to visit the island, you gotta stop to see the view. I know that it's a really touristy thing to do, but there won't be many times in your lifetime to catch a view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea at the same time. Even from the top of Timmy Hill, you can see the... More

We took an island tour by open bus from the St Kitts' cruise port, Port Zante, and the final stop prior to returning to Port Zante was overlooking the the South Peninsula. The bus climbs up Timothy Hill and down the other side, where there is a beach stop for those interested. It then labours back up Timothy Hill (which... More

After the National Railway Tour we made our way to the top of Timothy Hill where we could get a magnificent view of the island. It provides a gorgeous view of the place where the Atlantic Ocean meets with the Caribbean Sea. From here you’ll be able to see the neighboring island Nevis in the distance and beautiful landscapes.

We took this route a few times to get to some of the beaches and to observe the new construction happening on the road/tunnel, the new hotel and site for new marina. Would love to go back to see the completion of those projects as well as to see the fantastic views again.

We stayed at a villa at the end of this peninsula and drove through it every day. The views are spectacular. If you're on a cruise and have a day to spend in St. Kitts, be sure and take an island tour. It's so worth it.
