Tag Results: St Kitts
St. Kitts is among the Caribbean’s least-visited islands, which is precisely what makes it so appealing. And getting there may be pricey — flights from Miami between May 29 and June 5 start from $747 round-trip and are only slightly less, from $676 in early December — but a deal from St. Kitts Marriott Resort & Royal Beach Casino will help offset the travel costs.
Sinking your toes into pearly sands and sipping on a festive cocktail qualify as essential ingredients for enjoying a beach bar. But Caribbean joints require an extra component: music.

Here are the bars to hit up for the liveliest dancing.

A small, emerging destination in the Caribbean, St. Kitts still truly runs on island time. The moment you land on this breezy West Indies gem, you’ll want to adjust your pace and embrace the slow, peaceful way of life. To help you acclimate, here are five expected and unexpected places to truly unwind on St. Kitts:
Getting to the major Caribbean islands is pretty easy these days, with the major airlines providing direct service from many U.S. cities, Canada, and even Europe. But what if you’ve set your sights on a smaller island? Or if you plan to island-hop between destinations in paradise? Inter-island ferry service is possible, but the logistics of arranging it can be tricky. Flying is often a better choice, especially when time is a factor. Luckily, there are at least a dozen regional Caribbean airlines servicing the most remote islands. Some even have flights departing from the U.S. and Canada, sometimes at a cheaper price and with fewer connections than on the big commercial carriers. Use our mini guide to make navigating the islands fun, cheap, and, best of all, easy.
