So worth the walk to the top. Fabulous views of nearby islands and the volcano. Don’t miss this spot but do try to go when there are no (or only 1/2) cruise ships in port.

We stopped at Brimstone Hill as part of our St. Kitts island tour. It is a very neat historic fortress with beautiful views of the island and the ocean.

Not all the fort was restored. Imagination helps. Previous visits of similar forts too. It is located so high that you can see Montserrat and other islands. The staff is really nice. Though I don't recommend the food venue. Bring your own food!
