Things to do
Unlike the majority of the other Caribbean islands, St. Kitts & Nevis are still not overcrowded by tourists.
There are some great beaches on the islands and one of the most well known is Frigate Bay. You can swim, snorkel or relax on the beach.
On St. Kitts there’s Brimstone Hill, a fort which was left to decay until they realized its historical importance. Now restored, it offers some of the best views on the island and the surrounding islands of Saba and St. Eustatius.
St. Kitts is known for the musical celebrations, including the popular Carnival (December and January) and the St. Kitts Musical Festival which takes place in the last week of June.
Hiking, shopping and sightseeing are nice activities to try on either one of the islands.
