Luxurious, stunning and fun, St Kitts and Nevis may well be Paradise on Earth. Rumor has it even Harry and Meghan eyed it for their royal honeymoon shortlist. Although famed largely as an exotic destination for idyllic beach weddings and luxury cruise-liners, these Caribbean islands are perfect for families seeking a holiday to remember. From the sandy white beaches that attract the world’s travelling elite to the rich culture and heritage evident across the islands, the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis offers busy parents a chance to escape their demanding routine whilst keeping the children happy.
What to do in St Kitts and Nevis?
Immerse yourself in the spectacularly vivid scenery or take a casual stroll through the pre-colonial ruins. Excite your taste buds at the farmers’ market for freshly-picked mango or mouth-watering guava cheese (a healthy marmalade-like desert). Meanwhile, wonderful wildlife sanctuaries, fascinating monkey tribes and 176 species of exotic birds await the animal lovers in your family.
If fun-filled activities are more to your liking, then go zip lining through the breath-taking rainforest, rock climbing, snorkeling, scuba diving or even swimming with dolphins.
For educational purposes, visit the National Museum to study the colonial history of the islands or discover Amerindian and modernday artefacts. There is also a three-century-old fortress on Brimstone Hill – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an almost intact glimpse into the past.
Business and pleasure
If business cannot wait even on a family trip, the Royal St Kitts Golf Club’s championship level courses provide the perfect location for closing deals. Moreover, St Kitts and Nevis has the world’s first-ever Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme – a government-legislated process that grants second nationality if the applicant fulfils the vetting requirements and can make a significant investment into the country’s future. Since the CBI programme is only reserved for those who want to truly belong, it offers Platinum Standard benefits, such as increased global mobility, substantial business and investment opportunities and, perhaps more importantly, security and peace of mind for your family and future generations.
