Quintessential Caribbean

If you are looking at this, you are most likely looking for a destination in the Caribbean. Stop looking, cause you've found it. Saint Kitts and Nevis is a small nation in the Leeward Islands of the West Indies. The country is formed by the two islands that comprise its name, of which Saint Kitts is the larger one.

So why would we without even a second of hesitation recommend these two islands for a Caribbean holiday? Simply because they check all the boxes that one typically associates with a holiday in the Caribbean. Fantastic beaches are a no-brainer. But then there is also the islands' interior, which in both cases consists of fertile plains, followed by lush rain forest and volcanic peaks. Out in sea you've got rich marine life, colorful reefs and even shipwrecks to dive to. Interested in history? Go check out the historic plantations and colonial remnants like Brimstone Hill Fortress.

And the nightlife? They may not be that famous for it, but let's just say that if you enjoy a bit of soca, calypso or reggae, thou shalt be entertained. Of course there's the capital of Basseterre with plenty on offer, but what's really happening are the beach bars along Frigate Bay just across the island. [Review by travelindicator]
