Hurricane Hill Trail

A nice, easy hike is awarded to visitors who decide to make the trek of Hurricane Hill. Though you'll need to watch out for acacia thorns along the way, when you reach the top you'll enjoy great views of both St. Kitts and on the horizon, Barbuda.

The hill isn't overwhelming, just a little elevated piece of land near Oaulie Bay.


Located in Saint James Windward Parish, 1.4 miles west of Newcastle, Hurricane Hill Trail invites local customers and visitors who are lodging in this part of Nevis. However, even if you aren't staying in the vicinity, you are free to stop by for some fun in the sun. From this location, Charlestown is five miles (eight kilometers) to the south.

You'll find the entrance to the trail at the dirt road heading to Lovers' Beach. It begins at the top of the embankment and is marked by a power pole.

Nearby Restaurants

There are a multitude of dining options to select from in the community around this hiking trail. Oualie Beach Resort Restaurant, which offers Caribbean dishes, is very close-by, making it a great option for hiking trail visitors. The dining establishment is a short distance off, but far-removed enough that you might want to make arrangements for having a viable type of transport to get there. Also within a short distance, you and your companions will encounter eateries such as The Gin Trap and Bananas Bistro where you and your group may sample eclectic food and enjoy the St. Kitts scene.
