The adventurous and economic route….
Wanting to save money, feeling adventurous and desire to experience local life in St Kitts?
Then from Port Zante (Basseterre) take a 5 minute walk to the local bus terminus
which is next to the Nevis ferry terminal and request a local bus to SANDY POINT.
The buses are regular, clean and you will find the locals mostly very polite and
friendly. Inform the driver that you are new to the island and to tell you when
you reach Amazing Grace or Lighthouse Baptist Church. The costal ride takes
approximately 20 minutes and will cost $3 local dollars each (single trip)
To return back to Basseterre simply ask one of the Amazing Grace
Experience representatives Hazel or Keithlyn to stop the local bus from
outside our building.
Did you know that St. Kitts was the island on which John Newton got instruction and inspiration which partly led him to pen that famous and well-loved song Amazing Grace? Yes, it was!
Mr Newton was a captain of a slave ship which landed at Pump Bay, Sandy Point, St Kitts. He brought numerous slaves to St Kitts some of whom no doubt constructed the internationally acclaimed Brimstone Hill National Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See with your eyes the magnificent black sand beach of Pump Bay. Tour the Visitor Center set up to commemorate the life and music of Mr John Newton.
Come with us at VJ Tours and listen to the awe inspiring story behind the lyrics of
Amazing Grace and be blessed. You will be brought closer to God after your tour of
Amazing Grace Experience.
