St Kitts & Nevis

St Kitts and Nevis are two of the least visited and most peaceful islands in the Caribbean. St Kitts’ real name is St Christopher – not that anyone calls it that – and you’ll come to love this familiarity and friendliness on the islands. They are twin, pocket-sized paradises.

Two islands in one tiny nation in the Leeward Isles, St Kitts and Nevis are separated by a 3km stretch of water known as ‘The Narrows’. St Kitts is the larger of the two; fewer travellers make it over to Nevis. Whilst St Kitts and Nevis have got all the hallmarks of a traditional island escape – beaches, rainforest, water sports and cocktails – everything’s just that little bit quieter. In fact, they say that there are actually more vervet monkeys than people on the island – and most visitors would like to keep it that way. Those who are let in on the secret find themselves coming back time and time again. Book your flights to St Kitts and Nevis – and prepare for a holiday that feels like coming home.

Introducing the islands

St Kitts

The majority of visitors start their trip in St Kitts. Most international flights land here, with cruise ships docking in Basseterre, the colourful port capital. Nearby is the nightlife strip: Frigate Bay, where locals and tourists alike come for the bars and restaurants. Many visitors remain on this island – chugging along on the famous St Kitts Scenic Railway and checking off the impressive UNESCO-listed Brimstone Fort. There’s a wider range of hotels on this island than on Nevis – from self catering suites to utterly luxurious plantation properties. You could hire a car – or just use taxis to bumble around – and make your way to the jungly interior.

Some people say it’s like stepping back in time. Little Nevis is what the Caribbean used to be. It’s a gem of an island, with a halo of beaches all around and a minute capital: the colonial-style Charlestown. Volcanic Mount Nevis rises out of its middle, normally wearing its little hat of clouds. The volcano means there are hot springs on the island – a heavy hint that you should really come here to relax. Even getting here is easy: a private water taxi takes just six minutes from St Kitts, or you can take the inexpensive local ferry straight from Basseterre to Charlestown.
