Home to the first English and French colonies in the Caribbean, St. Kitts is referred to as the “mother colony” of the West Indies. One visit will tell you what attracted settlers to St. Kitts. Her soaring mountains, the striking beauty of her lush greenery and sculpted white shoreline set against the turquoise sea will astound you and make you promise yourself to return. For all the natural attractions on St. Kitts, bubbling volcanic springs, freshwater springs, hiking trails, and idyllic beaches, St. Kitts has no shortage of restaurants, resorts, and activities that make a perfect holiday. Formidable Brimstone Hill Fortress will amaze you with its sheer majesty and must be seen to be believed.

Tour historic Basseterre, and visit some of St. Kitts’ monuments and the National Museum before setting out for White House Bay and snorkelling over a sunken tugboat, or, for total privacy, try Sandy Bank beach on the Atlantic. Take the ferry over to Nevis, and meet the friendly residents who gather as it docks in Charlestown, then take time to visit the Horatio Nelson museum and Alexander Hamilton house. Be sure to make time before you are on your way to St. Kitts & Nevis for a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, four to eight weeks before departure, so that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for St. Kitts & Nevis.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

Apply liberally and often. When on tour, remember to wear light clothing and bring lots of water with you.

The tap water in St. Kitts & Nevis, is so good that in the 70’s Baron de Rothschild selected St. Kitts as the only Caribbean Island to distill his pure sugar cane liqueur. If you choose, however, not to drink the tap water, bottled mineral water is widely available, and it is advisable that you drink only bottled water when travelling outside Basseterre and Charlestown. Remember to drink often and whether it be water or fruit juices, replenish fluids throughout the day.

St. Kitts & Nevis have built a solid reputation for fine cuisine and an excellent choice of good restaurants that cater to all tastes. The focus is on Caribbean cuisine, with specialties such as spiny lobster, crab backs stuffed and baked au gratin, and conch, either pickled or curried. French, Chinese, North American and Creole restaurants on both islands also feature some local delights. The fertile soil in St. Kitts & Nevis produces a wide array of fruits and veggies, with the happy result that everything you are served is fresh. The top of the drinks menu is CSR liqueur, Rothschild’s Cane Sugar creation, and locally produced rum.
