The two-islands nation of St Kitts and Nevis is the smallest sovereign nation in the Americas. Separated by "The Narrows," a two-mile channel, it is easy to travel back and forth as there are frequent ferry crossings.
Although both islands offer historical and natural attractions, both are unique in many ways. St. Kitts has plenty of desirable beaches, sugar plantation tours, and the hustle and bustle of Basseterre, the colorful capital city. A scenic railway tour around the island is recommended.
Much smaller in size, Nevis is laid-back; there are several quiet beaches and the charming town of Charleston has a focus on history, especially on that of England's Horatio Nelson and America's Alexander Hamilton.
There are numerous ways to enjoy both islands, be it hiking, horseback riding along the beach, nature tours, or just relaxing in the sun.
