Saint Kitts and Nevis travel guides
Compiled by our specialists and based on their travel experiences in Saint Kitts and Nevis, our travel guides offer recommendations for what to see and do as well as the best places to stay.
The beaches, which range from secluded volcanic-sand coves to laid-back bays lined with rum stalls, may be the main reason you’d consider visiting the islands, but we suggest you venture further. If you do, you’ll discover a complex colonial history that has left a legacy of plantation inns, crumbling store houses and overgrown sugar plantations.
