St. Kitts & Nevis
Photos

St. Kitts and Nevis is an island country in the West Indies. Officially known as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis.

Located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles. It is the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere, in both area and population. View Map.

Famous for being surrounded by dive sites, it's long zipline, scenic railway, valcanos and variety of water sports. "Imagine an island that has set aside more than a quarter of its land as a National Park, with a rainforest that is actually expanding in size rather than shrinking."

Vacation Highlight Editor's Choice

Visiting an island should be adventurous so why not engage in adventure! We agree, resting is important, but we're talking about after you've rested, to get that badly needed adrenaline rush. We have some ideas. How about experiencing a parasail flight or jetski race, or how about learning a new sport like kitesurfing. All the above can be achieved at St. Kitts Watersports. Speak to Jeff or Sandy.

Enjoy your stay!
