St. Kitts is the authentic, quintessential, year-round Caribbean destination for the
discerning, experienced traveller. Intoxicating unspoilt natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. Located in the Northern Caribbean, where the Caribbean and Atlantic oceans meet, visitors are spoilt for choice. St. Kitts is steeped in history, shaped by the sugar and tobacco plantations of the 17th and 18th Centuries that formed much of the island’s economy until 2005 when the plantations closed and tourism became the mainstay of the economy. Today, the island’s heritage and cultural assets, preserved by the St. Christopher National Trust, are key elements in the visitor experience. Spectacular landscapes and rainforest provide endless hiking opportunities, while the UNESCO Brimstone Hill Fortress and Scenic Railway are must-do activities.
