St Kitts & Nevis Holidays

Enchanted escapes

You are bound to be captivated by St. Kitts and Nevis, thanks to beautiful rainforests, white sands and enchanting landscapes. As St. Kitts is home to an international university, the island’s population is mixed and diverse, resulting in a colourful nightlife. The Caribbean’s only working railway also calls St Kitts its home and is the best way to see the island’s natural beauty.

Nevis is smaller than its sister island and boasts a relaxing and unspoilt approach. Long empty beaches and a way of life that inspires you to pause and appreciate all the natural beauty around you. For some great offshore diving, head to Booby High Shoals to witness sea turtles and sting-rays or head to Pinney Beach for a famous Killer Bee cocktail – it’s strong you probably wouldn’t want more than one.

With only a 45 minute ferry ride between them, St. Kitts and Nevis is where you really can escape from the outside world, if you’re planning on seeking adventure or to kick back and relax – both of these islands have it all.
