St Kitts & Nevis Yacht Charters
Saint Kitts and Nevis are located in the Leeward Islands and separated by a shallow two-mile channel of water, dubbed “The Narrows.” The islands are of volcanic origin with steep, uninhabited peaks rising from their centers. A tropical rainforest exists in this central zone with rivers flowing down to where the land flattens out by the sea.
The islands offer a wide array of fabulous beaches, including white powder sand beaches, like the one at Cockleshell Bay, and some of the more exotic black sand beaches, such as Dieppe Bay Beach or Pump Bay. Offshore reefs protect the areas to allow for swimming and water sports while also providing colorful marine life to explore while snorkeling. The tropical forest is home to a variety of bird species, making bird watching a popular activity. Although many tourists come to St. Kitts and Nevis to shop, golf, fish, and indulge in one of the many spas.
