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.
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.
