Interesting history but not much to see.

May be worth exploring the history further but it only warranted a 2 minute cab ride stop by our taxi driver on way to Brimstone Hill Fortress. Just a concrete ditch.

We rented a car one day and drove around the island. The highlight of the day was the petroglyph canyon at Bloody Point. Basically, you can hike up the Bloody River through wilderness to where the canyon becomes deep and narrow. There are petroglyphs on the wall and there is historical interest related to the massacre, but the neat part... More

Interesting enough, the first time I visited St. Kitts we did a cruise ship excursion of the island and never learned about Bloody Point. Luckily, we found a great individual tour guide who knew much much more! Yes it is peaceful now but imagine brutal English and French united in force to kill the Caribs on their island. They were...

We passed by this place on a cruise ship excursion. Without being told the history we would have passed it by without sparing a glance.

this is one point where a guide is essential, if doing and island tour then I'm sure its worthwhile, if you are travelling on the island bloody point is best described as an area of no interest with nothing to see other than a placard explaining what happened. i don't want to offend any locals but if you have travelled...

I understand the tragic events that happened at this point were a milestone in the History of the island. But from a touristic point pf view, there is absolutely nothing to see here. Just a sign on a bridge that crosses a creek. Nothing worth a picture

The history has long gone and apart from the understanding of events there is nothing to see, other than the location. Hear the tales as part of an island tour.

This is more of a stop at the side of the road if you don't take the hike. However once you hear the very sad history behind the creek you will understand why there isn't more of a display. Frankly just existing is enough. Very sad.

I have always wanted to do the hike up Bloody Point Canyon so we organised a day where a group of us could do so. One of the local guides from Challenger’s village and a special guide who really knows the beliefs, customs and is also Carib, Bridget. With Leroy, Charles, and Bridget we set out on our hike with...

Our guide, Royston, said not many people do this short hike, and we certainly couldn’t have located the trailhead without his knowledge! We had a pleasant hike up an eerily beautiful river canyon, with Royston telling us about the Carib massacre and pointing out the petroglyphs. You will get your feet wet on this hike, unless you are a gymnast... More
