Mount Liamuiga, St. Kitts

4.1
#2 of 9 in Nature in St. Kitts and Nevis
Challenging hikes with unparalleled scenic beauty, Mount Liamuiga is not for the faint hearted. A stratovolcano with an elevation of 1,156 m (3,792 ft), the highest point in St Kitts, it was formally named "Mount Misery", an indication of the hiking difficulty levels here. A diverse landscape, many trails begin at the old mango forest woodlands, then on into buzzing dense rainforests. If you make it to the top, you'll experience a mesmerising trail through Cloud Forest, then a walk to the edge of a 1 km wide (0.6 mi) volcano crater, a breath-taking chasm with spectacular views. Numerous tour guides operate here. Be sure to wear proper hiking footwear, and if possible, hiking poles. As with all strenuous hikes, bring plenty of water. A visit to Mount Liamuiga represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sandy Point Town vacation planner to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Sandy Point Town

While Sandy Point Town itself remains very limited in terms of accommodations, you can easily access it from anywhere on the island by car or bus. Look for rental property options in neighboring towns, or hotels in the capital. If planning your visit during the annual St. Kitts Music Festival (at the end of June each year), book your lodgings at least a few months ahead.
