Apart from the experience that you're missing when travelling by bus, a car really is the best way to see the island of Saint Kitts. It makes it possible to make the whole northern loop in a few hours, and the southern loop in only an hour, and adding stops wherever you like.

When renting a car you have to keep in mind that you'll need to buy a local driving license. This is their way of charging road taxes. It will add another 10 US Dollars to the price of renting a car. It is a great way to travel around though: it saves you from a long climb up to Brimstone Hill Fortress, and it offers you great views of the coastlines and the islands around Saint Kitts. When going to the Southern Peninsula it's an easy way to look for desolate beaches and spotting monkeys.

Make sure to fill up the tank in Basseterre because there are no/hardly any gas stations in other parts of the island!
