Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. Christopher Columbus first spotted St. Kitts in 1493, when it was populated with native tribes, but the Europeans didn't colonize until the British arrived in 1623. Its strategic location and valuable sugar trade led to an advanced and luxurious development that was among the best in the Colonial Caribbean.

Spectacular Mount Liamigua, a dormant volcano located at the island's center, dominates the landscape. While you hike through the dense tropical forest of the central slopes and tramp across the lava formations, the natural wonders on St Kitts will astound you. Black, white and golden sand beaches invite countless hours of lounging and sipping frozen drinks. Home to the Federation's capital city, Basseterre, St Kitts is known for its well-preserved, picturesque colonial structures. In fact, Basseterre is one of the most picturesque colonial settlements in the entire Caribbean.

Due to the number of sunken vessels, virgin reefs and other submerged natural wonders, dive enthusiasts are now discovering that, in St. Kitts, beauty runs deep. However, although there is also a wealth of fishing, snorkeling, sailing and other water sports to enjoy, St. Kitts is best known for its relaxed atmosphere and stunning natural beauty.
