St Kitts and Nevis superyacht charter

St Kitts and Nevis superyacht charter

St Kitts and Nevis are a two-island nation at the northern end of the Leeward Islands. In prehistory they were both part of one island, but rising sea levels turned them into two separate islands.

St Kitts, the bigger of the two, is one of the most scenic islands in the Caribbean, with breath-taking views everywhere you go. Originally St Kitts was completely given over to the production of sugar cane, but these days relies entirely on tourism.

Of the two islands, St Kitts is by far the livelier, more cosmopolitan, although it is still a long way from being over-developed. Being volcanic, most (but not all) beaches on St Kitts are of black sand, while most of the beaches on Nevis are white sand.

From a tourist point of view, there isn’t a huge amount to see or do on St Kitts and Nevis, but there are some interesting fortifications up at Brimstone Hill on St Kitts, and there is fantastic snorkelling and diving to be done on the reefs around both islands.

There are no specific facilities for visiting super yachts, the nearest large marinas being at nearby St Martin, St Barts, or Antigua. But that shouldn’t stop you from including these two beautiful islands on any cruise around the Leeward Islands.

The lush countryside and the beautiful beaches alone make them worth a visit, and the fact that St Kitts is a regular stop-off for cruise liners means that facilities for visitors are better than average.
