Two islands, one paradise. For anyone who enjoys stunning natural beauty, a holiday in St Kitts or its little sister Nevis cannot fail to exceed expectations.
At the centre of St Kitts stands the spectacular, cloud-fringed peak of Mount Liamuiga (pronounced Lee-a-mweega), a dormant volcano covered by dense tropical forest. And on Nevis, too, the ground rises upward into a forest filled with elusive green vervet monkeys and brilliant tropical flowers. Yet nature is only a small part of the wonder of these small, relatively undiscovered destinations.
The peaceful calm of St Kitts suggests nothing of the extraordinary history of the island. For centuries the two islands occupied a critical position, as a gateway to the Caribbean, in the European struggle for the West Indies.
As a result, the struggles and conflicts that have marked their pasts are among the most decisive episodes in Caribbean history - episodes which have left a wealth of historic interest points. This venerable history has plenty of romance as well, for it was on Nevis that the dashing young Horatio Nelson met, courted, and wed Fanny Nisbet.
