St. Kitts

St. Kitts — Beautiful beaches, a friendly, authentically West Indian vibe and an abundance of undeveloped (for now) land help make this island stand out among its Caribbean counterparts. Together with neighboring Nevis, St. Kitts is part of a Federation nation that was one of the first British and French West Indian colonies (its original name was St. Christopher). This was also the seat of the colonial sugar industry, which is why much of the island was preserved for lush cane fields and plantations. With sugar production stopped just a few years ago, the island is only now gearing up for big-scale tourism and real estate development – making this a perfect time to explore the still-pristine sites. For information on St. Kitts' sister island, see our Nevis Travel Guide.

Why Go

For local flavor and few chain spots, excellent diving, hiking, and relatively un-crowded beaches.
