St. Kitts and Nevis

St. Kitts and Nevis Travel Guide

Book an island tour on the railway, which takes you through tiny villages and pineapple fields and close to an ancient hilltop fortress.

The hotel was built in 1778 to accommodate wealthy Europeans visiting Nevis’s therapeutic hot springs. The stone compound was converted into government offices in 2005, but the springs are still open to bathers free of charge.

Locals head instead to the secluded and palm-lined Paradise Beach. Bring your own towels and food; there are no services here.

After a day of snorkeling in coral reefs along the island’s southeastern tip, drop by to swing in a hammock under a palm tree, mango colada in hand, as you gaze out across the Atlantic at Nevis.

Though sun-seeking Americans visit Nevis in winter, the island is at its most lively in July, during the annual weeklong Carnival-like party.
