St Kitts & Nevis Holidays: An Overview

It's a reassuring sign of the laidback vibe in the Caribbean that several of the islands go by their nicknames. There's St Barths for St Barthelemy and then the less well-known St Kitts & Nevis, which should - if formality mattered a jot in this neck of the woods - be called the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis. This twin island federation is located in the Leeward Islands and once had a triplet in the form of Anguilla, the nearby British dependency which is also a firm Original Travel favourite.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Unpretentious, unspoilt, traditional and friendly, St Kitts and Nevis is the good old fashioned Caribbean at its very best
  • Soak up the history of the islands by staying at one of the lovely plantations on either island - Nelson even met and fell in love with his wife to be at Nisbet Plantation back in the 1700s

St Kitts & Nevis Luxury Holidays: The Detail

Saint Kitts and the smaller Nevis, lying 2 miles to the south-east, are now part of our portfolio thanks to once weekly BA flights into Kitts. Where once the islands were among the first in the Caribbean to be settled by Europeans, (Saint Kitts was home to the first British and French colonies in the Caribbean,) we suspect there will be a second wave of settlers any time soon once people realise how beautiful the islands are.

Did you know

  • The twin islands are both volcanic
  • The national bird is the brown pelican
  • There are over 50 varieties of mangos found on the islands
  • It was once known as the Gibraltar of the West Indies


Original Highlight

The two islands are separated by a channel known as 'the Narrows', which at two miles wide might seem narrow to someone of Byronic swimming ability, but could just as easily be called 'the Extremely Wides' to any normal swimmer.
