The best things to do after dinner in St Kitts & Nevis are based around limin’ – the locals’ unique style of relaxing and enjoying life. Whether that’s watching the sun go down with a cool cocktail in hand or dancing the night away to some Caribbean beats, there’s a good range of night-time adventures on the island.

    Those looking to party on St Kitts could head to The Strip on South Frigate Bay, where many of the island’s best bars and nightclubs can be found. St Kitts' nocturnal activities aren’t limited to the bar scene, though. Check out the island’s sole cinema, take a night kayaking trip, or even help scour the beaches in search of turtle nests as part of the island’s leatherback turtle monitoring efforts.

    Vibes Beach Bar and Mr X's Shiggidy Shack are among the best-known nightspots on The Strip. Many places are open all day, too, so you could chill at the beach, linger on for dinner, then dance the night away to the sounds of a resident DJ or band.

St Kitts Water Sports offers kayak night tours with glass-bottom vessels for 1 or 2 people. LED lights on the kayaks give the sky and sea a vivid glow, and they attract curious fish that you can see through the clear hull.
