Join us on a Caribbean short escape to the picturesque and unspoilt islands of St Kitts and Nevis. With volcanic landscapes, clear waters and idyllic white sand beaches, this tiny island nation offers some stunning swimming opportunities as we explore the bays, beaches and shipwrecks which make up the country’s beautiful coastline.
Located in the Caribbean Sea around 70 km west of Antigua, St Kitts and Nevis is the eighth smallest country in the world by area and ninth smallest by population. The two federated island nations are separated by a 4 km strait known as The Narrows, which, weather-permitting, we will attempt to swim across during this trip.
St Kitts is the larger of the two islands and is home to the capital city of Basseterre and the mighty Brimstone Hill Fortress. It is one of the most unspoilt islands in the Caribbean that enjoys green landscapes, blue skies and long, empty beaches. Across The Narrows, Nevis has a gentle pace of life that encourages you to stop and appreciate the natural beauty around you. The island is anchored by a single volcanic mountain and is home to a small number of beaches and villages.
Our home for the week is the laid back Oualie Beach Resort on Nevis, the perfect base from which to explore the seas around St Kitts and Nevis sister islands.
