St. Kitts & Nevis

Located in the northern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean, St. Kitts can easily boast of being the most picturesque island in the Caribbean, with an unique blend of old historical structures and modern facilities. Just 38 km (23 miles) long, and with only 69 sq. miles of total land mass this scenic island combines lush peaks with acres of waving cultivated vegetation interspersed with historic sugar mills and tiny hamlets.

St. Kitts offers a diverse tourism product developed from the destination’s natural beauty, cultural heritage and rich history with a wide range of interesting sites. The impressive fortress at Brimstone Hill is really a must-see, and the faded gingerbread charm of the capital Basseterre is unique in the Caribbean.

The island’s stunning variety of tourism attractions include hiking through the tropical rainforest, riding the scenic railway that connects the island’s sugar plantations, touring Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, the only man-made UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Eastern Caribbean, and the more traditional vacation pastimes such as water sports, golf, shopping, tennis, gourmet dining, gaming at one of St. Kitts’ two casinos or simply relaxing on one of the island’s sandy beaches.

The islands of Saint Kitts and Nevis are two of the Caribbean's oldest colonized territories. Saint Kitts became the first British colony in the West Indies in 1624 and then became the first French colony in the Caribbean in 1625, when both nations decided to partition the island. The island of Nevis was colonized in 1628 by British settlers from Saint Kitts. Although small in size, and separated by only 2 miles (3 km) of water, the two islands were viewed and governed as different states until the late 19th century, when they were forcefully unified by the British. Today, this beautiful country is an independent Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state, represented in St. Kitts and Nevis by a Governor-General, who acts on the advice of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. The prime minister is the leader of the majority party of the House, and the cabinet conducts affairs of state.

Guests can select from accommodations ranging from intimate plantation inns to larger hotels or resorts.
