St Kitts is a charming island with picturesque plantation houses, rainforested hills, uncrowded beaches and friendly locals. Separated from Nevis by a 2km channel known locally as ‘the narrows’, St Kitts can easily be visited on a day trip while staying on the neighbouring island.
Our friendly team of travel specialists has extensive knowledge of the Caribbean islands and has visited each of the hotels that we offer. This enables us to provide expert advice and to tailor make the perfect holiday for you, whether you are looking for a luxurious resort or a boutique gem. Tropic Breeze is a specialist tour operator offering fully bonded and protected holidays with ABTOT or ATOL, meaning you can rest assured that your holiday is safe and secure.
The island, which forms a nation along with neighbouring Nevis, was a British colony for 270 years until achieving independence in 1983. For many years sugar and tobacco growing dominated the landscape of St Kitts and while no longer a major contributor to the island's economy, many local people are still employed in its cultivation and processing.
St Kitts is a relatively small island and in five hours you can cycle around the entire island, taking in the breathtaking views along the way such as historical sites, tropical gardens and exotic beaches. For those who prefer hiking, there are plenty of trails which can be explored with a guide to learn about the beautiful flora and fauna around the island. Mount Liamuiga is a dormant volcano which offers stunning views from the summit, the island's highest point. Guided tours start from Belle Mont Farm, where guests can also dine on authentic local cuisine in a relaxed setting on a 400 acre organic farm.
Another way to explore the island is on board the Sugar Train, a scenic railway that travels along the coastline with a group of a cappella singers.
