About St Kitts & Nevis
St Kitts is a truly beautiful island, once the oldest of the English colonies of the Caribbean and boasting a lushness born of its volcanic formation. The highest of the peaks in St Kitts is Liamuigia, an extinct volcano measuring 3,792 feet. Liamuigia was the original name for the island and translates as ‘fertile land’, a perfect description for this tropical paradise. St Kitts is now the only Leeward island of the Caribbean that still grows sugar cane, once one of the biggest industries of the West Indies, while the colonial past of St Kitts gives this island a beautiful quality, found in the old colonial plantation homes that are now beautiful inns. St Kitts is only sixty-nine square miles and is largely unspoilt by big development, with towns remaining small, un-crowded and very welcoming for the visitor who wishes to relax in a paradise setting. The beaches of St Kitts are also stunning, and for anyone wishing to experience the sheer beauty of the Caribbean, St Kitts is the perfect destination.
