St. Kitts

Beyond St. Kitts’ immaculate beaches, all shades of green spring from the rich volcanic soil on Mount Liamuiga, the 3,792-foot-high dormant volcano. For a taste of nightlife while the sun is still shining, head to The Strip on South Frigate Bay. The hot spot has beaches, resorts, and lively bars with open-air dance floors. While The Strip is famed for its nightlife, most places open at 10 a.m. and offer a unique brand of island excitement throughout the day.
