A volcanic island with dramatic mountains and lush vegetation, St. Kitts, located in the eastern Caribbean, is your prime R&R location. You'll find pristine natural surroundings, blue Caribbean waters, warm sandy beaches and much more. Nature lovers shouldn't miss touring the lava formations, tropical forests and blue-green lagoons. For the adventurers, there are always boating tours and scuba diving expeditions. For a lazy day of shopping, let the quaint towns draw you in; you'll be captivated by their beautiful Colonial architecture and quiet peaceful surroundings.

What to Do

Tee off: With crystal blue waters on one side and an eye-opening volcano covered with lush tropical foliage on the other, you'll find golfing on one of St. Kitts's championship golf courses a real treat. Check out the St. Kitts Royal Golf Club, but beware on holes 15, 16 and 17 -- lest you lose your ball in the Atlantic Ocean!

Sail away: Hop aboard one of St. Kitts's many catamarans for a day on the water of snorkeling and exploring the vibrant sea life. Many tours will take you to the neighboring island Nevis for a day where you can swim with the fishes and explore the reef. Many packages include all the equipment for a day of snorkeling, and some even offer a barbecue lunch on the beach. How's that for island life?
