St Kitts & Nevis Destination

Situated at the mid-point of the Leeward Islands chain, St Kitts and its stunning sister isle Nevis, separated by just a two mile wide channel, are a romantic blaze of bright blue seas, picture perfect beaches and furrowed volcanic peaks. Cheeky vervet monkeys natter in trees plotting ways to steal fresh fruit, sea turtles swim in gin-clear waters and the scent of mango envelops the islands. St Kitts and Nevis are relatively unknown and still remain largely off the tourist track, which is, of course, a great part of their appeal.

On sleepy Nevis, while away days in a beach cabana enjoying hot spicy shrimp straight from the barbecue, washed down with coconut water or a rum punch. Climb Nevis Peak, take a rainforest hike or a join a monkey tour with ‘bush doctor’ Michael Herbert. Stroll through the tranquil Botanical Gardens where Admiral Nelson once walked with Fanny Nisbet, or indulge in chilled Champagne on your terrace under clear, starlit skies. Nevis is a paradise of bleached beaches, Georgian houses, tropical heat, cool breezes and weathered sugar mills just waiting to be explored by foot, bicycle or jeep; colonial Charlestown is a must, as is a round of golf at Robert Trent Jones II’s challenging course and a cheeky rum punch at Sunshine’s Beach Bar & Grill, a colourful island hangout on Pinney’s Beach.

St Kitts is the busier of the two islands, although you would hardly say it’s developed. Teeming with monkeys and mongoose, home to exotic black sands in the north and silvery white shores further south, the island boasts reef-protected waters which are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and diving. A scenic railway follows the trail of old sugar cane tracks, the Upper Round Road is ideal for hiking, and if you’ve got the gumption, you can zip line over steamy rainforest or climb to the edge of Sofa Rock, the crater rim of a dormant volcano. History buffs will enjoy exploring the impressive 18th Century Brimstone Hill Fortress, but if swaying coconut trees, Champagne cocktails and balmy days soaking up the sun are more your thing, Banana Bay delivers unspoilt white sands and Pump Bay is a great place for the novice diver or snorkeller.

Explore St Kitts...

Brimstone Hill Fortress

Situated almost 800 ft above sea level, this remarkable fortress is one of the best preserved and most dramatic in the entire Caribbean. Constructed over the course of 100 years between the 1690s and 1790s and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Brimstone Hill was the site of many dramatic battles between the British and the French as both nations sought to assert their control of the lucrative Caribbean colonies.

Step aboard the scenic railway

You don’t have to be a train spotter or a railway enthusiast to enjoy this unique and beautiful train journey. Built in the early 20th Century to deliver sugar cane from the fields to the sugar mill in the capital city of Basseterre, the railway now provides visitors with a fascinating way to see St Kitts from the comfort of custom-made, open air carriages.

Discover Nevis...

Stroll the streets of Charlestown

This delightful town is one of the best remaining examples of the colonial era in the Caribbean. Much of Charlestown looks exactly as it did hundreds of years ago and you’ll see many examples of beautiful 18th and 19th Century colonial buildings.

Visit the Botanical Garden

Lying in the shadow of Mount Nevis, this five-acre garden is a wonderful, tranquil oasis full of tropical flowers and shrubs, orchid terraces and water lily ponds. The gardens are situated on land originally belonging to the Montpelier Estates where, further up the road, a young Horatio Nelson married Fanny Nisbet in 1787.

The Horatio Nelson Museum

Offering a fascinating glimpse into the past, this museum displays original artifacts and memorabilia from the life and times of British Naval Admiral, Lord Horatio Nelson, who visited Nevis in the 18th Century.
