Discover the charm of secluded coves and tropical peaks
In the Caribbean's Leeward Islands chain is the small two-island republic of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Suitable for couples and families, these islands are fringed with both local coves and beachfront bars, giving you the best of both worlds. Above all, you can experience the charm of this small nation from an A&K luxury villa.
Historical highlights include the capital of Basseterre, located on Saint Kitts. Small enough to explore on foot, you’ll spot Georgian buildings dotted between the more modern architecture. Make sure to visit Independence Square and the nearby clock tower which was built in Glasgow and named after British legislator Thomas Berkeley Hardtman.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site Brimstone Fortress is also worth the climb. Built from dark volcanic stone on a dramatic outcrop of rock, it’s one of the largest forts in the Caribbean. Thanks to being meticulously restored you can learn all about its historical significance. On a clear day, it provides unparalleled views of the island and sea that reach as far as Montserrat.
Nevis Peak offers a spectacular backdrop from most of the island, with the lush green hues a dramatic contrast to the blue of the sky and surrounding ocean. The true beauty and authenticity of these islands can only be felt in person.
