With perfect beaches, year-round sunshine and stunning natural beauty, St Kitts and sister island Nevis feel like the Caribbean in microcosm. Providing some of most beautiful sights and impressive wildlife in the region, the locals are unsurprisingly proud of the place that they live.
The atmosphere is always tranquil – outside of the capital Basseterre you won’t find anywhere that’s moving at anything other than a blissfully relaxed pace.
The people are primarily of African descent with a strong Christian tradition in their beliefs. Their proud Caribbean heritage and traditions can be seen every day.
Why visit St Kitts?
Your chance to see two Caribbean islands in one vacation – hop on a boat between St Kitts and Nevis
Visit the Brimstone Hill Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage site
Some of the Caribbean’s most disarmingly beautiful landscape with the peak Mount Liamuiga being one of the tallest in the region
The lack of tourist-based development means there’s fantastic unspoiled beauty here
Lots to do – as well as rainforests and mountains ideal for hiking there are brilliant spots for scuba diving and snorkeling
