On a map of the Caribbean, St. Kitts is hardly bigger than a speck. The dual-island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis covers slightly more than 100 square miles between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, with St. Kitts comprising roughly 70 percent of the country’s total area.
While Nevis is known as an island of leisure, St. Kitts is living proof that big things come in small packages. Relaxing as it can be, it’s also an island that runs on adrenaline, with an inexhaustible list of outdoor activities to keep energetic travelers, well, exhausted.
If your dream Caribbean getaway involves scaling volcanoes, ziplining over the rainforest, and trying every water sport imaginable, these are the most exhilarating things to do in St. Kitts for adventure-seekers.
