St. Kitts and Nevis Overview

St. Kitts and Nevis, also known in the country's constitution as Saint Christopher and Nevis, has been independent since 1983 and forms part of the group of islands known as the Lesser Antilles located some 2,000 km to the southeast of Miami. The Federation comprises two islands: Nevis with an area of some 93.2 km2 and St. Kitts with 168.4 km2. The official and business language is English. The Federation is a member of the United Nations (UN), of the Organisation of American States (OAS), the British Commonwealth, Caricom and many other international organisations. The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank has its headquarters on St. Kitts. It maintains the stability of the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (ECD), the national currency of most Eastern Caribbean countries, which is tied to the US dollar. The Head of State is the Queen of England. St. Kitts and Nevis is a well-functioning democracy based on the British parliamentary system. St. Kitts and Nevis offers good opportunities for investors. The workforce is well-educated, English-speaking and friendly.

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 whom about 9,000 live on the island of Nevis. Like no other islands in the Caribbean except Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis embody a kind of lush tropical paradise usually associated with the South Pacific. The ambience here is a blend of sunlight, sea air and abundant vegetation. At the center of St. Kitts stands the spectacular, cloud-fringed peak of Mount Liamuiga (pronounced Lee-a-mweega), a dormant volcano covered by dense tropical forest.

Although tourism plays a smaller role than on other Caribbean islands, the twin-island Federation offers fine beaches and an outstandingly attractive mountainous landscape. The climate is tropical and close to perfect. Differences in altitude and corresponding differences in soil types make it a paradise for tropical plants. St. Kitts has a very well-designed championship golf course laid out between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, with a second golf course presently being constructed at Sandy Point some 10 miles from Basseterre, the capital. There is also a very attractive golf course on Nevis. The truly appropriate motto of the tourism authority is: Two islands - one paradise.
