What to Do
Tee off: With crystal blue waters on one side and an eye-opening volcano covered with lush tropical foliage on the other, you’ll find golfing on one of St. Kitts’s championship golf courses a real treat. Check out the St. Kitts Royal Golf Club, but beware on holes 15, 16 and 17 — lest you lose your ball in the Atlantic Ocean!
Sail away: Hop aboard one of St. Kitts’s many catamarans for a day on the water of snorkeling and exploring the vibrant sea life. Many tours will take you to the neighboring island Nevis for a day where you can swim with the fishes and explore the reef. Many packages include all the equipment for a day of snorkeling, and some even offer a barbecue lunch on the beach. How’s that for island life?
Dine right: For a meal as perfect as St. Kitts, make a reservation at Ottley’s Plantation Inn, an 18th-century sugarcane plantation. There, you’ll find a tantalizing menu of West Indian cuisine with ever-changing, fresh, local ingredients.
