In the smallest country of the Americas, the possibilities seem infinite. Two islands comprise this tiny nation—Saint Kitts and Nevis—split by a narrow strait and embraced by the Caribbean Sea. Both boast dormant volcanoes and undulating, rainforest-clad terrains bordering champagne-hued beaches and colonial relics. Mellow down from epic views and join locals around a soca-soaked party or a friendly game of cricket.

FUN FACT

The Narrows is a small strait separating the sister islands of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Only 4-kilometres wide, many brave the swim from one shore to the next or even race across in the annual Nevis to Saint Kitts Cross Channel Swim, leaving from Oualie Beach on Nevis and finishing on Cockleshell Bay.
