Get a Great Deal On Flights to St Kitts
St Kitts is most certainly the Yin to Nevis’s Yang. Although its peaceful little brother sits just across the Narrows strait, this one beats to a much more lively tune. Its sands have an air of St Tropez about them, with designer-clad bodies strutting between the cocktail joints and the swish villas that stud the jungled shores. The hubbub of Basseterre is hard to beat. A popular hot spot with cruisers during the dry months, flitting between the duty-free shopping strips, the roaring cricket stands and the lobster-cracking seafood eateries along Bay Road.
Days are usually spent topping up the tan on photogenic beaches like South Friar’s, backed by walls of green-clad hills, and Turtle Beach, where zebra fish and brain corals lurk in the surrounding reefs – have the snorkel at the ready. Or, they can be taken with bouts of golfing in the championship courses, wandering UNESCO-tagged forts, boating around the hidden coves, or diving in the world-renowned scuba sites that abound.
