Basseterre, the capital of Saint Kitts and Nevis, offers the visitor the best opportunity to explore the exotic beauty of the West Indies and the unique, relaxed atmosphere that dominates the Caribbean.
With its population of 13,000, Basseterre is small, but certainly exciting. Founded in 1627, the city once served as the capital of the entire French West Indies, and it has a long history of being hit by natural disasters, but always able to get back on its feet.
It is not only the history of Basseterre that is so special. Located in an area surrounded by the densest, lushest forests you have ever seen on one side and by the crystal blue sea on the other, Baseterre, Saint Kitts, makes an equally exciting destination for visitors interested in exploring the cultural heritage of the area as well as for those who prefer outdoor activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving or hiking.
