The Caribbean usually conjures up images of pristine beaches, crystal blue water and the even bluer skies. One does not think of volcanoes. But St. Kitts has a (dormant) volcano in Mt. Liamuiga (Mt. Misery). The effect of prior activity can be seen on the north east side of the island. The beaches are filled with volcanic rock and the sand itself is black in color from those rocks getting pounded by big waves for centuries.
