St Kitts cruise: Things to do on a Caribbean cruise to St Kitts near cruise port, Caribbean

If you have a cruise to St. Kitts, here are some pictures you may want to take near the cruise port!

St. Kitts is one of those Caribbean islands that you can see the hills immediately upon sailing into the cruise port. This makes for an amazing backdrop for your pictures!

This means that you’ll want to make sure to walk around the open deck of the cruise ship once you do get to St. Kitts. Try to do so before you leave for your St. Kitts excursion in the morning, and then once again when you get back from your tour in the afternoon. The angle of the sun can make a difference in how your pictures turn out.

For your St. Kitts excursion, here are ideas with some of the best activities in St. Kitts.

Walking near St. Kitts cruise port

Now, this isn’t one of those “must-do” things in St. Kitts, but!

If you have an hour or two to spare after you get back from your main St. Kitts excursion or tour, you may consider heading back out onto the island after you’ve dropped off any extra things you were carrying. Maximize your time in port! It’s not every day that you’re on a cruise to St. Kitts!


If you splurged on shore excursions at another port during your Caribbean cruise and want to take it easy in St. Kitts, this walk can give you a chance to do so.

There’s a sidewalk along the coast of St. Kitts near the cruise port that you can follow that will give you a nice walk with that laid back Caribbean vibe. You’ll just feel it!

So, as long as you have your walking shoes on, you are good to go! 😉

As you are walking away from the St. Kitts cruise port, head along the coastal path to the left. You really can go either way, right or left, but if you have to pick, go left! Or, if you have time, go in both directions! 😉

This is walking off to the right along the St. Kitts coast…
