Enjoy a quiet vacation -- or an action-filled getaway packed with water sports thrills -- in a luxurious and alluring corner of paradise on the twin islands of St. Kitts and Nevis.
Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and sparsely peopled beaches combine in the sister islands of St. Kitts and Nevis to make them one of the Caribbean’s most seductive spots. The twin islands are separated by a two-mile wide channel, with ferry services that help visitors easily enjoy them both in a single trip!
While development has been of the highest quality, it has fortunately been constrained, so the islands remain uncrowded and unspoiled, famous around the world for excellent preservation of the environment. Nature lovers will want to take advantage of tours through lava formations, tropical forest areas, and seaside lagoons. Boating and scuba diving are also favorite activities. Plantation homes have morphed into grand, yet intimate inns. Quaint shopping areas and beautiful architecture draw visitors to the tiny towns.
Spectacular Mount Liamuiga, a dormant volcano, dominates the landscape of St. Kitts. Black- and white-sand beaches invite countless hours of lounging and sipping frozen drinks. Home to the federation’s capital of Basseterre, St. Kitts is known for its well- preserved colonial structures. There is a wealth of fishing, snorkeling, and other water sports to enjoy.
Although smaller than its neighbor, Nevis has plenty of enchanting attractions, including an almost perfect ring of unbroken, pristine beaches surrounding the island. Indulge in a hot springs soak, or go diving and snorkeling at the many fantastic sites, some dotted with sunken vessels. The ecosystems are vibrant and well-preserved, and many tours take you right in for close encounters.
If a quiet, luxurious vacation is what you seek, you’ll find it on St. Kitts and Nevis.
