Saint Kitts and Nevis

Saint Kitts and Nevis is an island nation in the West Indies that is formally recognised as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis. It is the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere, both in terms of territory and size, and is located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles. The nation is a Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state. St. Kitts without a doubt is a beautiful island home to lush rainforests filled with exotic trees, plants, monkeys, floral life, white sands and pristine beaches. Welcome to this week’s Destination of the Week!
