The Caribbean is so popular these days that remembering the original flair of the islands is difficult at times. Before tourist-driven commercialization, much of the West Indies lay untouched and offered a sense of adventure and solitude for travelers. If you know where to look, you can find that same atmosphere today.
Part of the Caribbean Leeward Islands, the dual island federation of St. Kitts and Nevis was one of the first places settled by Europeans, and until recently, the islands evaded most urbanization. Raw nature, old fortresses, plantation houses of bygone eras and old Caribbean-style shacks lining the wilderness complement the main attraction: untouched beaches.
Here are five of St. Kitts and Nevis’ most secluded beaches with that old Caribbean flair for the perfect beach vacation.
