A honeymoon on St. Kitts and/or Nevis is an ideal destination for total relaxation and serenity in a place of natural beauty that is filled not only with history, but romance too.
These islands have drawn travelers since the days of Christopher Columbus. In fact, St. Kitts was originally known as St. Christopher Island. With it’s strategic location, it was a treasured stop along the trade route which lead to its growth and prosperity.
Kittitians, as the locals are called today on St. Kitts, are warm and as welcoming as the island weather. They are proud of their island, which includes the biggest fortress ever built in the Eastern part of the Caribbean, along with gorgeous Victorian architecture and incredible wildlife such as birds, monkeys and mongoose
Although a small island, St. Kitts offers fantastic, adventurous experiences and romantic spots to spend an amazing honeymoon. Couples can wander in the rainforest, snorkel or dive among the coral reefs, or hike down into a dormant volcano. The beaches are tranquil and crowd free, with beautiful white sand. Couples can also enjoy horseback riding, golfing, zip-lining and so much more. Boating, deep sea fishing, wind surfing, shopping, and dining are all among the other activities that draw honeymooners here to start their life together.
Another unique activity is the Scenic Rail Tour, which boasts one of the last active trains in the Caribbean islands. The train travels over 24 bridges as it makes its way through the landscape and the island’s mountain range.
When couples are ready for some down time, there are a number of spas on the island that will help sooth away your worries….many of them located in the island’s fantastic resorts, hotels and inns. A wide variety of accommodations abound on the island, with something to offer everyone.
If staying on St. Kitts, couples can take a trip over to neighboring Nevis, which always seems to host a number of celebrities due to it’s more isolated atmosphere. Although a bit more expensive to stay on, this island is known for it’s natural beauty, quiet and unspoiled, and is one of the Caribbean’s best kept secrets.
