Timothy Hill & Carmbola Beach

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to take a taxi to Timothy Hill just to see it and take pictures then get dropped off at Carambola Beach Club?

 

Will that taxi ride be very costly?

Is $10 entrance fee at Timothy Hill just to go up the hill or to visit the fort?

I'm not sure with the specifics on Carambola and their prices, but yes, definitely possible to get pictures from Timothy Hill on the way to Carambola.  Just ask your taxi driver to stop.  Carambola is on South Friars Bay, so its just on the other side of Timothy Hill.  We did this in 2015, but went to Shipwreck Beach Bar & Grill, also on South Friars Bay (opposite end of the beach).  Our cab ride was $4 pp, each way.  When we were there, there was no entrance fee for Timothy Hill.  The road to the beaches on the southern end of St. Kitts goes right over Timothy Hill and there is a pull over area/overlook, so the drivers can stop along the way, or on the return trip.  There is an entrance fee of $10.00 for Brimestone Hill Fortress, which is on the northern part of St. Kitts.

I think when we researched the cabs were $16 each way.    We ended up booking transportation through Liz Pereira of Pereira tours.  We paid $15/each for round trip transportation to Carambola and we stopped at Timothy Hill on the way for as long as we wanted.  Once at the resort the driver asked what time to come back and he was there 30 minutes before waiting. A cab would have saved us some money but it was nice to have someone waiting for us right off the boat to pick us up and not have to deal with finding a cab at the end.  

 

There was no fee at Timothy Hill.  It was just an overlook.  At the resort they charged $10 for chairs and $10 for an umbrella. They did have free wifi on the beach.    They had a bar/restaurant that we ended up not using.   We did walk down to the shipwreck bar and get some drinks there though.
