St. Kitts, known as the "Sugar Island" of the Caribbean, is renown for its unspoiled natural charm and West Indian ambience. Everything is easily accessible, uncrowded, unpretentious yet unhurried, that is except for Kim Collins, a Kittitian who currently holds the "world's fastest man" title.
Stunning beaches on the South peninsula give way to three groups of steep volcanic hills surrounded by vast sugarcane fields and grasslands dominated in the north range by Mt. Liamuiga, a 3792 foot volcanic peak with lush tropical rainforest along its north slope.
St. Kitts is 23 miles long and 5 miles across at its widest, encompassing an area of 68 square miles. Nevis, the smaller island, lies to the south and is approximately 7 miles in diameter, covering a total of 36 square miles. The two islands support a population of about 45,000, of which about 9,000 live on the island of Nevis. The yearly average temperature in St. Kitts is 80 degrees with a constant northeast trade wind.
