St. Kitts

Mountainous St. Kitts, the first English settlement in the Leeward Islands, offers a surprisingly diverse vacation experience. Divers have yet to discover all its underwater attractions, history buffs will marvel at Brimstone Hill, known in the 18th century as the Gibraltar of the West Indies, and nature lovers will be pleasantly surprised by the hiking, whether in a rain forest replete with waterfalls or a central mountain range home to a long-dormant crater. There's also now every kind of accommodation, as well as gourmet dining, golf, and gaming, plus white-sand beaches concentrated around Frigate Bay with views onto quiet Nevis.
