Holidays to St Kitts and Nevis

If you’re looking for a quieter kind of Caribbean destination without the crowds, then holidays to St Kitts might be the answer. Blessed with idyllic beaches, dormant volcanic peaks, lush rainforest and fields of swaying sugar cane, this is an island where the lack of cars outside the capital means there’s no need for traffic lights. St Kitts’ sister island, St Nevis, just two miles away across the sparkling ‘Narrows’ is even quieter - and every bit as beautiful.

The perfect place to relax, St Kitts has beaches for everyone - underwater enthusiasts, watersports fans and tanning addicts included. The very whitest and softest sand carpets the island’s south-east peninsula, and Frigate Bay, where you’ll find the liveliest action, is ideal for windsurfing, water skiing, or hanging out at a friendly beach bar. There’s good snorkelling and diving too, especially at White House Bay, which has a reef and a sunken tug boat. And just about any stretch is great for sun bathing, complete with stunning views of verdant mountains or neighbouring Nevis.

St Kitts has a colonial history as an island of sugar plantations, and its back-story makes for some interesting heritage sites to visit. The capital, Basseterre, has appealing Georgian architecture and a square that once played host to a slave market, while UNESCO-listed Brimstone Hill Fortress is a reminder of the days when the British flag flew here.

But the island’s greatest asset is its natural beauty, and you can hike among the sleeping volcanoes and steep ravines of the interior on the look-out for hummingbirds and vervet monkeys -or take the quicker route by zip-lining through the tree canopy. One thing’s for sure though: wherever you look on holidays to St Kitts, there’s a guaranteed feast for the eyes.
