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.
