Nevis Peak forms a beautiful backdrop to almost everything on the small island of Nevis. The island is rimmed with talcum beaches and sapphire Atlantic and Caribbean waters. Here you can visit old sugar plantations where the houses have been turned into hotels, hike through the lush green countryside, mountain bike or ride, and dive in the warm, tropical waters. Not without infrastructure, Nevis boasts a top-class golf course and several restaurants that serve delicious Caribbean food.
Saint Kitts is the larger of the two islands, equally bedecked with long silvery beaches. The volcanic slopes in the interior nestle in verdant rain forests. From the slopes six other islands are visible.
Basseterre, the capital, boasts lovely Georgian houses and nineteenth century churches. The Brimstone Hill Fortress located here is one of the best-preserved fortresses in the Americas.
