Blog: It’s All About St Kitts & Nevis
Tue, April 17th
The islands of St Kitts and Nevis are two of the sleepiest places in the Caribbean, and one of the few countries in the region where agriculture is still a large part of the economy than tourism.
The islands have mountains interiors, patchwork cane fields, salt ponds and deeply indented bays. Both islands are small, rural and lightly populated. You will not find any fast food outlets, little in the way of shopping, limited nightlife and no traffic lights … just a slow and unhurried pace.
Access to Nevis is easy via sister island St Kitts with British Airways direct services from London Gatwick, and a seamless connection by road and water taxi to Montpelier.
