Saint Kitts and Nevis at a Glance

This two island nation is a winning combination of beaches, cute towns and a volcano. Frequent ferry service means that you can easily enjoy activities on both islands.  

Both islands have sections of sugar-white beaches, palm trees and crystal waters. Enjoy a tranquil morning swimming in the placid waters and catching some rays. Surfers and adventurous boogie borders can find more exciting waters at Windward Beach where the Atlantic surf pounds into the fine gray sand. 

St. Kitts and Nevis still retain signs of their colonial history. Old sugar plantations dot the landscape and have been turned into parks, museums and resort hotels.  

Rain forest adventurers will find zip lines and tropical tours available. Wade through the lush greenery of the interior islands and spot birds, monkeys and other animals. Hikers can scale the volcano on Nevis, from the top, the views of the sea are spectacular.
