Basseterre is on the south western coast of Saint Kitts Island. A port town, Basseterre has a charming British and French heritage, which is reflected in its colonial buildings. Blessed with glistening beaches and sparkling blue seas, it's a truly captivating place. One of the oldest port towns in the Eastern Caribbean, Basseterre is a place packed with history too. Top sights include ‘Brimstone Hill Fortress', which boasts stunning views of the sugarcane fields, and the domed ‘Treasury Building'. Situated on the waterfront the ‘Treasury Building' recalls St Kitts' glory days as a sugar production centre. ‘St George's Anglican Church', built by the French in 1670, is another landmark building that's worth checking out. Or, for relaxation, head for the pure white sand of 'South Friar's Beach'.
There are two shopping malls in Basseterre, the Pelican and TDC Mall. Both feature selections of clothing, jewellery, and souvenirs. Or check out the local crafts at Amina market (just a taxi ride away). Popular purchases in Basseterre include rum, cigars and handicrafts.
