Saint Kitts and Nevis is beautiful two-island nation located in the eastern Caribbean Sea. If you were to draw a straight line between Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Kitts and Nevis would lie roughly one third of the way down the line. These two islands are actually the summits of a volcanic mountain range, with the rest of the range hidden underwater. Nevis is the slightly smaller island and it lies just two and a half miles away from Saint Kitts. Nevis has its own volcano, and from Saint Kitts travelers will usually see the Nevis peak hidden up in the clouds, surrounded by the island’s dense greenery and beautiful white sandy beaches. For the intrepid traveler, these wonderful pair of islands has something to please everyone. For couples, Saint Kitts is the perfect romantic destination, while for families there is something to keep every family member happy. There is also a thriving food scene, sure to make even the most demanding foodie excited, and due to the influx of cruise ship tourists, there are luxury options aplenty too. The locals on Saint Kitts and Nevis are some of the friendliest and most authentic you will find anywhere in the Caribbean. To get a feel for what day-to-day life is like for locals, visitors should make a note to visit the busy Saturday market to find out where the locals do their shopping. One of the best local products to buy in Saint Kitts and Nevis is the local chili sauce. But beware, it’s not for the faint of heart. The stalls on Bay Road around the market and are a great source of street food and local banter. Most visitors come to these islands primarily to enjoy the sun and sand. And with good reason, the beaches here are truly world-class. However, once you’ve had your fill of palm-fringed idyllic beaches, there are many things to do on the island covering a whole range of interests. Also, if you happen to be one of those who are arriving on St Kitts by cruise ship, there are plenty of activities to do in a day. Other than going to the beach, one of the most recommended things to do in St Kitts is take a ride on the Sugar Train. It might well be the most scenic railway route in the entire Caribbean and should not be missed. The train line was built between 1912 and 1926 and was originally used to transport sugar cane from the fields to the mills. Nowadays its sole purpose is to take paying passengers through the stunning Saint Kitts countryside. The train has been refurbished for this sight-seeing purpose and is now double decked with open observations carts. The ride allows passengers breathtaking views of the dormant volcano, Mount Liamuiga, as well as many views of the lush rainforest and across St Kitts and the surrounding islands. The price of the train ticket include all drinks, and rum punch or daiquiri is the recommended cocktail. The last time Mount Liamuiga, the island’s dormant volcano, erupted was over 200 years ago. For the adventure seeking traveler it is possible to walk the three hour-long hike in order to be rewarded with epic views over the island and a peep into the crater which is often referred to as the “Giant’s Salad Bowl”, due to the foliage that fills it.
