St Kitts & Nevis

Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts & Nevis one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean...

Welcome to the exotically beautiful island of St. Kitts. Like no other island in the Caribbean, St. Kitts seems to embody a kind of lush tropical paradise usually associated with the South Pacific. The island remains uncrowded and unspoiled, famous around the world for excellent preservation of the ecosystems .The atmosphere here is palpably luxuriant and it is an intoxicating blend of sunlight, sea, air, and fantastically abundant vegetation. It is a wonderful place to create some of your best memories.

Daily temperatures average 80 degrees Fahrenheit year round, with a constant cool breeze from the Northeast Tradewinds keeping the island comfortable.  With an average sunshine of 12 hours in a day, humidity is very low and with less than 55 inches of rainfall annually, St. Kitts has no distinct rainy season.

St. Kitts boasts a wide variety of beaches which range in character from the sparkling black sands of the north-eastern side of the island, through to the grey sands and the golden sands which give way to a whiter hue as one travels towards the end of the southeast peninsula.  Along this peninsula, there are numerous little beaches, many of which tend to become private seclusions for the adventurous and the curious.  So, pack a tote bag with sun glasses, a good novel, sun screen, a cooler with ice, lots of drinks and an opener – it’s really frustrating when you forget that. 
Visitors have several options for exploring the island, including local taxis, which are abundant throughout St. Kitts. For the food lovers , they will find a wonderful range of cuisines to select available at various restaurants, both individually operated and found within the island’s hotels or inns.  Caribbean delicacies dominate most menus, yet Continental, vegetarian, Italian and other styles can also be found on the island.

A diverse selection of places to stay can be found for every price range and properties vary from intimately elegant boutique inns to grand beachfront hotels and all-inclusive resorts as well as condominiums, villas and guest houses.When the sun goes down, St. Kitts comes alive with vibrant local music, dancing and entertainment at dozens of resorts, bars and hot spots including Monkey Bar, Buddies, Inon’s Beach Bar, Sprat Net, Island Rhythms, Oasis Sports Bar, Reggae Beach Bar and Grill, The Beach House, Lion Rock Beach Bar, PJ’s, Mr. X’s Shiggidy Shack, Ziggy’s, Rainbow Beach Bar and Bobbsy’s, to name a few.

The twin-island federation of St. Kitts & Nevis is located in the northern Leeward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean, approximately 19 degrees north of the Equator.  St. Kitts is separated by a 2-mile wide channel from its sister island, Nevis.  The Island is 23 miles long and 5 miles wide, encompassing a total area of 68 square miles.  Its highest point of elevation is Mt. Liamuiga, at 3,792 feet above sea level.

There’s something about this small, sombrero-shaped island that grabs you. The charm and tranquillity takes you back to a time when things were simpler, when life was more peaceful, when stress was just a word, not a way of life.  This 36-square-mile island lies near the top of the Lesser Antilles archipelago, about 200 miles south of Puerto Rico, and just west of Antigua. This island jewel is approximately 7 miles long and 5 miles wide, with natural vegetation that is unparalleled.

Its 10,000 residents are friendly and helpful, ready to make new friends and welcome back regular visitors. The genuine charm and hospitality radiate into the unspoken, “Welcome,” “Be my guest,” and “Do come again. “Nevis is special, a place that will seduce you, and tug at your heart strings after you leave. Like they say on Nevis: “You’re only a stranger here once.”
Nevis is paradise for nature lovers. Just listen to the monkeys chattering in the trees, the doves cooing in the distance. There is excellent snorkelling just offshore and scuba diving around wrecks and natural reefs. For those more interested in man-made exploration, try your hand at archaeology, or exploring the ruins of old sugar plantations, a lime kiln, or Amerindian sites.

Things to do

There are several experienced tour guides on the island that can take you where you want to go. While some places are accessible on your own, island officials recommend that you go with a tour guide into the mountain to visit Nevis Peak or climb on other trails. Not only will this insure your safety, but it will make the trip more meaningful as you learn about the flora, fauna and history from the experts.
