Like salt and pepper, vanilla and chocolate, yin and yang, St. Kitts and Nevis are a perfect pair. Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make this two-island nation one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean, and the perfect place for some tropical R&R.
The islands include everything you need to engage your body and inspire your mind. There are breathtaking sugar cane fields, manicured plantation inns, funky bars, and glorious beaches. In St. Kitts the capital of Basseterre is a fascinating place to watch as the locals hop from shop to shop on bustling town streets. On Nevis there are blissfully uncrowded beaches, flowering hibiscus and bougainvillea, and the majestic Nevis Peak, a volcano that rises 985 metres into the sky and acts as a magnet for bikers, hikers, and other outdoor fans.
History buffs can explore the legacy of Horatio Nelson and Alexander Hamilton or the well preserved remains of the Brimstone Hill Fortress, a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Divers will discover a colourful range of reefs and sea life along with shipwrecks and underwater caves. Food lovers can feast on delicious Creole and West Indian fare; peas n’ rice, Johnny Cakes, and coconut-crusted fish are among the islands’ best eats. Escape the chaos of everyday life and experience a 2-for-1 tropical paradise, sitting pretty in the Caribbean Sea.
