St. Kitts and Nevis Holidays
Visiting St. Kitts is not just about tantalizing the senses; it’s about following your heart. Massive beds of offshore coral, teeming with fish of every stripe and color. What’s not to love about the island of St. Kitts? Caribbean vacations don’t get more breathtaking than this.
Nevis is one of the most unspoilt and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. Vividly green with blue skies, clean air and long empty beaches, Nevis has a pace of life that encourages you to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around you.

ABOUT ST. KITTS
Once known as the gateway to the Caribbean, St. Kitts beguiles all the senses. From the sweet perfume of wildflowers said to hold the spirits of beloved family members, bringing their memories to life to the aroma of a smoky sizzling barbecue on the beach. When the time comes to say goodbye, you’re sure to bring home sweet memories of our laid-back way of life of pellucid waters crowded with glittering rainbow fish and green sea turtles. Of chattering vervet monkeys and friendly families of mongoose. Of unforgettable sunsets and rainbows that appear out of nowhere.
Attractions & Historical Sites
Brimstone Hill Fortress
Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of historical, cultural and architectural significance and it is a monument to the ingenuity of the British military engineers who designed it and to the skill and strength of the African slaves who built it on the steep at the risk and probable loss of lives. Its elevated vantage point offers panoramic vistas of forested mountains, cultivated fields, the historical township of Sandy Point, and neighboring Dutch, English and French islands across the Caribbean Sea.
Fairview Great House and Botanical Gardens
This 18th century Great House has been authentically restored to its former glory with careful attention to historical detail. Step back in time as you wander through the dining room with its sixteen seat mahogany dinner table and antique silver service, as well as the Historical Room that chronicles the fascinating past of Fairview.
Old Treasury Building & Museum
It is one of the most outstanding architectural buildings in downtown Basseterre. Built in 1894, this impressive structure has been witness to the procession of life in the nation’s capital for over a hundred years. The treasury building adopted the name “The Gateway to the Island”, as its imposing archway led the way to the streets of Basseterre for many visitors and travelling residents arriving by boat.
St. Kitts' history traces back millennia, and nowhere does that become more apparent than along Wingfield Road and Stone Fort River.
