Holiday in St Kitts & Nevis and experience old-world West Indies
Holiday in the neighbouring islands of St Kitts & Nevis for a reminder of how the West Indies used to be before the the age of tourism and the development of the beach resorts. Some might say the pleasures and treasures of this tiny two-island nation are more rustic than Barbados and St Barths. They may be right, but if you are looking for a peaceful escape in beautiful natural surroundings, this will only be music to your ears.
Holidays in St Kitts revolve around perfect, unspoiled beaches that are overlooked by the misty mountains of the interior. If you tire of all that relaxing head to the hills for a spot of hiking.
Nevis holidays, meanwhile, offer you the chance to discover more deserted, tranquil beaches. Head inland from these to discover the atmospheric ruins of historic sugar plantations hidden away on trails through the rainforest.
You can enjoy a day out on the slopes of Kitts’ towering Mount Liamuiga volcano, where you will find yourself surrounded by wildlife. On your journey to the spectacular Crater Lake, you will be accompanied by chattering vervet monkey and scurrying families of mongoose, plus roaming goat and black-bellied sheep.
And then its back to your swaying hammock...
