Luxury Holidays in St Kitts and Nevis
Between the two islands of St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean Sea, visitors will find the zen-inducing combination of white sandy beaches, warm waters and breathtaking scenery on a customised itinerary for a luxury break with Lightfoot Travel.
While there’s plenty to do on both, rest and relaxation are the order of the day, with the islands’ natural beauty taking centre stage. Here you’ll find sugar cane fields, manicured plantation inns, glorious beaches and sunny skies. The majority of resorts have dedicated spas, and there’s massage spots along the more popular beaches, like Cockleshell.
For the great outdoors, Nevis, the home of Nevis Peak, provides opportunities for biking and hiking, while the uncrowded beaches backed by flowering hibiscus and bougainvillea are perfect for some après exercise down time.
On St. Kitts, visit the well-preserved remains of the Brimstone Hill Fortress, a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, and explore the local legacy of Horatio Nelson and Alexander Hamilton. The capital of Basseterre also provides a fascinating opportunity to watch the locals shop on bustling town streets.
Much of the two islands’ attraction can be found offshore, with the warm waters teaming with opportunities for snorkelling and diving. Divers will be spoilt for choice with reef and cave diving and the chance to explore shipwrecks. In the evening, hip bars and local delights will please discerning foodies. Delicious Creole and West Indian fare such as rice n’ peas, Johnny Cakes, and coconut-crusted fish are among the best eats.
