Our vacations in St. Kitts and Nevis


The Capital of St. Kitts, Basseterre, is tucked away in a lush valley between the hills and mountains of the island. It is a walkable small and sleepy town, and its French and English heritage can easily be explored by foot. The harbour area, Port Zante, offers duty-free shops for tourists and cruise ship passengers alike, and the local outdoor and indoor markets offer local handicrafts and produce.
