A true microcosm of Caribbean culture, St Kitts and Nevis gives you everything you could ask for from a tropical break, and so much more. This two-island nation celebrates a rich history with a landscape that almost encourages you to explore. Long, rarely-trodden mountain trails offer exciting, panoramic views of the ocean while the valleys possess magical glimpses of exotic birds and wildlife. All of this natural beauty combines with an authentic cultural appreciation of relaxation. Go slow, and enjoy yourself; take it all in, but in your own time.
Reside within historical plantations-turned-luxury-hotels between eco-rambles and incredible never-busy beaches. Brimstone Hill Fortress, built in the 17th century, remains a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers wonderful views of the sea while the St Kitts scenic railway proudly carries tourists across the island as the last sugar train in St Kitts. Visit Romney Manor, one of the oldest rum distilleries in the Caribbean before taking time to pause on the uncrowded Cockleshell beach.
The best time to visit St Kitts and Nevis is between February and May, as these are the driest months. July-November is the wet season, with hurricanes sometimes occurring during September and October.
