Saint Kitts and Nevis is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. It’s known for cloud-shrouded mountains and beaches. Many of its former sugar plantations are now inns or atmospheric ruins. The larger of the 2 islands, Saint Kitts, is dominated by the dormant Mount Liamuiga volcano, home to a crater lake, green vervet monkeys and rain-forest crisscrossed with hiking trails.
We visited the largest of the 2 islands, St. Kitts, in May 2018 and stayed at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino. We explored Basseterre, Independence Square, Berkeley Memorial, the Anglican Church and the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church. In addition, we visited the Brimstone Hill Fortress and National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Cockleshell Bay, Frigate Bay, Vibes Beach Bar, Romney Manor and Caribelle Batik.
