St Kitts and Nevis

St Kitts and Nevis luxury holidays

Introduction

St Kitts and Nevis make a pretty perfect pair. Officially known as St Christopher, St Kitts is made up of three groups of volcanic peaks split by deep ravines. Holidays in St Kitts start in the shambolic, atmospheric capital Basseterre, which has a blend of architectural styles redolent of the islands past. Frigate Bay is the island's main beach resort, with two striking stretches of sand. Take to the Circle island Road, visit Brimstone Hill Fortress, explore the Liamuiga volcanic crater and stay at a plantation inn.

Nevis, the ‘Queen of the Caribbean', is dotted with colonial ruins, which sit side-by-side with exclusive resorts and spas. Nevis holidays begin in the island's charming capital, Charlestown, which is beautifully preserved; elegant old plantation houses have been converted into exceptional hotels. Sunbathe at Pinney's Beach; head to Black Sand Beach or climb Hurricane Hill for views towards St Kitts.
