St. Kitts Hotels
St Kitts is a beautiful, green, and fertile island in the Eastern Caribbean Island Chain. The island is shaped like a tennis racket with three large verdant volcanic mountain cones dominating the large part of the racket and the narrow handle consisting of a series of small, drier, heavily eroded volcanic plugs. The mountains rise up to 4,200 feet and are covered with rainforest, full of chattering green vervet monkeys and wild birds. The highest peak carries the old Indian name for the island, "Liamigua" meaning "fertile lands". Travellers come here from around the world to experience this paradise of pristine nature, immaculate beaches and lovely St. Kitts hotels and St. Kitts resorts.
The population now numbers about 35,000 mainly of African and African/European mixed descent. St Kitts and the sister island of Nevis joined together to form an independent country in 1983. The culture is dominated by African and European traditions. Sugar cane was always the wealth of this island and life revolved around plantations until the sugar industry was finally abandoned in the 21st century to be supplanted by St. Kitts travel and tourism as the main employer. St. Kitts island is rapidly becoming a playground for the rich with breathtaking scenery, St. Kitts beaches and an exotic culture laced with rum, music and dance. Most visitors fall in love with the island and many purchase St. Kitts real estate for their very own slice of this tropical paradise.
St. Kitts island attractions are focused mainly on nature and include Scuba, snorkel trips, horseback riding, mountain rain forest hikes, ocean kayaks, day sailing, and game fishing. A recent zip line trail has been set up in the forest. An absolute must is a visit to the Brimstone Hill Fortress, an amazing restored structure dripping with cannons dominating the top of a cliff sided rock outcrop overlooking the Caribbean sea. This impressive fort was built by slave labour and created to keep out the warring French. A day trip to the sister island of Nevis is also essential. Water taxis to Oualie Beach on Nevis can be easily arranged.
St. Kitts hotels vary from small St. Kitts guesthouses from as low as US$45/night to renovated plantation inns. There are also some nice St. Kitts resorts and that offer lovely St. Kitts accommodation on a St. Kitts beach for an ideal St. Kitts vacation. Most guests visit during the winter, but the St. Kitts weather in the summer is lovely with clear blue skies, the occasional gentle rain shower and perfect for swimming.
