Although in size a pair of specks in the Caribbean Sea, this dual-island nation has plenty of attractions. Our specialists have explored it from volcanic peak to beach to recommend the best places to visit in Saint Kitts and Nevis. You can choose simply to relax on the sand, or venture inland to explore the islands’ colonial legacy, still on show in grand sugar plantations and imposing forts. With good connections to the rest of the Caribbean, hopping across to other islands is also easy.
Larger Saint Kitts is fringed with long stretches of silvery sand, which frame a lowland rainforest climbing up volcanic ravines. The compact capital, Bassetterre, is a warren of Georgian-era architecture, alfresco cafes and Anglican churches. Nevis offers Caribbean charm with a languid lifestyle, botanical gardens, brightly painted shacks and rum stalls.
