Travel to the Caribbean islands of St. Kitts and Nevis
Separated by a two-mile channel, discover the beauty of the sister islands of St. Kitts and
Nevis in the British West Indies. Your Caribbean travels will lead you to islands that are rich in vegetation and history. Visit St. Kitts and Nevis, and see their splendor for yourself.
The smaller and less developed island, Nevis, is just 36-square miles. At its center is the
3,232-foot Nevis Peak, an extinct volcano that stands above the clouds. The island’s famous
past residents include Alexander Hamilton and famed British Naval hero Horatio Nelson.
Once the “Queen of the Caribees” for its sugar plantations, Nevis enchants travelers with its
unspoiled beauty. In Condé Nast Traveler’s 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards, our small
island was among the Top 10 Caribbean travel destinations.
For those who have traveled throughout the Caribbean, you’ll find it’s different here. There are no casinos, no high-rise resorts. Not even a stop light.
(And buildings cannot be taller than a coconut palm.) Instead, you’ll find lush plants, tropical birds, colorful hummingbirds and roaming green
vervet monkeys. Nevis’ 12,000 friendly residents take pride in their culture and love sharing
it with travelers.
There’s a lot packed into this beautiful island. To help you plan your trip, check out some of
our favorite island activities. See you soon!
