A tiny dual-island nation that is big on character and charm

A dual-island country and one of the world’s smallest nations, these beautiful islands are great for an exotic and authentic Caribbean experience. Both islands are dotted with charming plantation inns and historic sites. St Kitts – the larger of the two – is home to a dormant volcano, a scenic narrow gauge railway and a UNESCO-listed fortress. Guests staying on Nevis fly into St Kitts’ airport before transferring by boat to its sleepy sister island. Nevis is even more laid-back, with unspoilt beaches and beautiful botanical gardens. Both islands have loads of things to do such as hiking, kayaking, horse riding and birdwatching.

  • Perhaps not as well-known as other Caribbean islands, St Kitts and Nevis are perfect for those lured by the Caribbean but wanting to stay away from the crowds
  • Known as the ‘mother colony of the West Indies’ this tiny nation is not short on history and heritage sights having been among the first Caribbean islands settled by Europeans
  • St Kitts, officially called St Christopher and the larger of the two islands, was the oldest and wealthiest of the British colonies
  • Known as the ‘Jewel of the Caribbees’ Nevis has a laid back ambience with genuine charm, friendly locals and magnificent scenery
  • For a little adventure, head into the St Kitts rainforest for incredible valley views
