Belle Mont Farm rests high on the green foothills of Mount Liamuiga—a nearly four thousand foot tall dormant volcano that forms the western part of St. Kitts. The peak is not only the highest point on St. Kitts, it’s also one of the tallest points in the eastern Caribbean.
Though Belle Mont Farm is less than half way up, sitting at about one thousand feet, it still commands a stunning view of northwestern St. Kitts. The best place to take it all in is at the appropriately named Lookout.
In the foreground, tops of steeped cottages peek out of lush green. Next Irie Fields, the 18-hole golf course, sprawls down the hill. On its fringes rolling fields with small houses sprinkled around the edges extend toward the coast. From there, a silver sea lies between St. Kitts and the seductive silhouette of St. Eustatius.
Lucky visitors to the Lookout early in the morning can often see a rainbow hanging over St. Eustatius, also called Statia. In the afternoon small clouds trail shadows across the countryside and sunsets paint the entire scene in a stunning array of warmth.
There may be no better perch to take in St. Kitts.
