At just 68sq miles, St Kitts is easy to explore by car. There is a good road network and driving is on the left. More than 400 undiscovered wrecks surround the island, as do pristine coral reefs and a myriad of colourful marine life. The most unique way to see St Kitts is on the new St Kitts Scenic Railway which takes visitors around the island following the tracks of the original Sugar Train, via old plantation homes and some spectacular scenery including Black Rocks, Brimstone Hill and Romney Manor. Colourful and lively festivals run throughout the year. The locals welcome all visitors so everyone can join in the celebrations. The biggest events in the year include the International Music Festival in June and 10-day Christmas and New Year celebrations. Never hesitate to ask directions or for advice. Kittitians are laid-back and incredibly friendly people. Hours can be spent 'liming' with the locals. Glorious beaches beckon sun worshippers. Choose to laze on hidden coves or long sandy stretches either on the calm Caribbean coast or the more fiesty Atlantic. An average of 12 hours sunshine a day makes St Kitts an ideal year-round destination. Enjoy a vast range of activities including water sports, hiking up St Kitts' impressive volcano, trekking in the rainforest or playing golf.
