The beaches alone are worth the trip to St. Kitts.
The island’s best beaches (and its cruise ship dock) are on the south end of the island. But I believe St. Kitts’ best spots are on the northern 2/3 of the island.

What sets St. Kitts apart from other is that it’s developed just enough that you can have all your creature comforts, but not feel like you’re in a tourist trap (unless you’re on the small stretch of shops and bars where the cruise ships dock, in the main city of Basseterre).
And that makes it a great place to create family memories.
TravelingMom Tip: One of our favorite things to do when taking a vacation is to hire a photographer for family photos. This is a special gift and souvenir that we cherish. We use Flytographer to book a local photographer located in the area that we're traveling to. Use this link and you will get $25 off your photo session.
