A second Island closeby

We are planning in going to St. Kitts for 4 days and doing a day trip to Nevis while we are there. We then want to go to a 2nd island for 4 days, we like activities like hiking, biking, tennis and snorkeling.I was thinking about Anguilla but I now see if does not offer much besides beach activites. Any suggestions on an island that is easy to get to from St. Kitts?

I would suggest St. Maarten/St. Martin for the activities you are looking for. You can travel thru SXM on your way to and from the US, as well.

Otherwise, some choices for close islands are St. Eustatius, Saba, St. Barth's, and Anguilla. However, none of these fit your activity criteria, IMO. Well, St. Barth's might, so you could also look into that option.

Good luck

St. Martin looks alittle too busy for us, we like more of the laid back atmosphere....between St. Barts and Anguilla, which is better?

You could probably find more of the activities that you are looking for on St. Barth's, rather than Anguilla.

I agree that St. Maarten might be a little busy for what you prefer after I read your other thread.

Maybe this is obvious but why not spend longer on Nevis? It's a fabulous little island.

Do you think there is enough to do for 8 days between St. Kitts and Nevis (my husband likes to move around)? Also would you stay on each island for a few days or just on 1 of them?

I think 4 days on St. Kitts and 4 days on Nevis would be ideal. There is enough to see and do and enjoy. Nevis has a lot of history, great hiking and a variety of different places to stay.

Remember it's better to see fewer places well than to try to see too many places too quickly.

I'll take that advice and focus on those 2 islands. Thanks!
