Exotic destinations always belong to the most powerful tourist magnets. Especially the very secluded and small ones. St Kitts and Nevis, two Caribbean islands barely touched by tourism are now preparing to welcome more visitors.Secluded islands seem like a dream to most holiday makers. The less crowded the setting, the more romantic and relaxed holiday one may expect. However, the list of such fantastic destinations is not unlimited and finding the right place is very challenging. Nevertheless, more and more small islands realize the value of tourist traffic and invest in providing the best services which will appeal to many. St Kitts and Nevis, two sister islands in the Caribbean have all the potential to win over the hearts of all.The most relevant aspect of drawing the tourists is establishing a good connection with the world. British airways recently launched a weekly direct flights to St Kitts from London, and what is even more convenient, a visa-free travel between several Caribbean states and the EU is under way. Even though St Kitts and Nevis form a federation, each island retains a very different, yet striking character. Their history is rather interesting as both the British and the French longed to rule over them. Eventually, the British became dominant and thus, until today, English language prevails. St Kitts is the more ‘modern’ of the two islands. A new development is to be finished here in 2011 featuring five-star hotels, luxurious restaurants and shops. Local pristine beaches and countless amazing dive sites as well as impressive sporting facilities create the ideal holiday paradise. Nevis, the smaller of the two, is less keen to become the luxurious casino haven and cruise ship magnet, however, its simple beauty and natural charm complements perfectly St Kitts. With several development projects under way, the sister islands are likely to become the new shiny stars of the Caribbean within a few years.
