St Kitts and Nevis | Twin-Island Beauties

St Kitts and Nevis is a twin-island nation located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Cloud-shrouded mountains, lush rainforests, and beaches create striking views. Former sugar plantations that are now inns dot the islands. Mount Liamuiga dominates St. Kitts, the larger of the two islands.

Nevis is the smaller and more serene of the two islands. The island offers many sandy beaches, including palm-fringed Pinney’s Beach and sheltered Oualie Beach. On Nevis, colorfully painted houses dot the landscape. Both islands have genuinely welcoming people, cool tropical breezes, and plenty of things to see and do.


St Kitts and Nevis have beautiful weather all year round. With its tropical climate, the temperature usually stays between 25-30 degrees Celsius (77-86 Fahrenheit). The months between December and April are driest, while the other months are generally rainy.

There’s also a very mild risk of hurricanes from June to November. The nights can be cool and pleasant, especially during the winter months.
