The two-island nation of St Kitts and Nevis is as idyllic as the Caribbean comes. With mountainous scenery, unspoilt white sandy beaches and friendly locals, a luxury holiday or honeymoon to one or both of the islands comes highly recommended.St Kitts is the larger of the two islands and home to the international airport. As a result there is more of a buzz on the island and visitors will find the picture perfect beaches paired with plenty to keep them entertained. In the French colonial capital of Basseterre, admire charming architecture or visit the historic National Museum. Alternatively, visit the island’s UNESCO protected Brimstone Hill Fortress which is built high on a hill with stunning sea views. For those looking for bars, restaurants and a bit of nightlife, the Frigate Bay and Cockleshell Bay areas will not disappoint.Across the water, Nevis is the small, laid-back epitome of simple Caribbean charm. The enchanting island is old fashioned – but in a delightful way, being home to intimate island inns, colonial architecture, unspoiled tropical rainforest and golden-sand beaches. Only six by eight miles in size, this incredibly lush island is dominated by the rugged Nevis Peak, a huge volcanic mountain with views of neighbouring St Kitts in the distance.
