An island famous for its valuable sugar trade is, itself, intoxicatingly sweet. While the rest of the world is getting smoggier and dirtier, St. Kitts' unspoiled, rainforest-filled magic is more alive than ever. The "untouched" feel of St. Kitts is aided by the fact that more than a quarter of the island is protected national park land. The surrounding Caribbean water is brimming with tropical coral and fish and the trees are teeming with wildlife that you've only ever seen before at your city's zoo. Since St. Kitt's has more than a dozen beaches, each one has different specialties ranging from perfect body-surfing, snorkeling, picnicing, diving, surfing, windsurfing, water-skiing, or simply luxurious relaxation. Some beaches feature soft white sand, others feature sparkling black, volcanic sand. And all offer beauty, relaxation and adventure. "The Strip" can add some spice to your trip. It's filled with quirky restaurants, live music, drinks, and dancing. But when you're craving a dash of history, you'll find it in the centuries-old fortresses, factories, and estates scattered around the island. St. Kitts has everything you could want from an isolated island vacation.
