If you prefer a more tranquil experience of the Caribbean, holidays to Saint Kitts and Nevis are ideal. The two island neighbours are small but they have all the top-class facilities you find at the larger islands. There are numerous secluded spots with good beaches and quality restaurants. The soil is rich, so fresh produce is abundant.
The islands' mountains are often topped with cloud and the landscape is lush. The tropical beaches are fringed with palms. In the past, the islands' main income was from sugar grown on the plantations. Most of these have now become ruins with some of the buildings having been converted into inns for the tourists. Saint Kitts is the biggest island and is overlooked by the now dormant Mount Liamuiga volcano. There is a crater lake and the area has a population of vervet monkeys. Many visitors on a Saint Kitts and Nevis holiday choose to hike some of the trails in the surrounding area.
