As one of the earliest of Britain's colonies, St Kitts was so highly prized that the vast Brimstone Hill Fortress was built to defend it. Standing 240m above sea level, it is a breathtaking complex, constructed in about 1690 by African slave labour. It now houses a museum that gives a good insight into what life would have been like for the soldiers living in the dramatic surroundings. Once called the Gibraltar of the West Indies for its domination of 18th-century battles. It is worth also climbing up a little further to Monkey Hill for the coastal views.
