Caribbean sister islands St. Kitts and Nevis are home to dormant volcanoes, tropical foliage and beautiful, uncrowded beaches. From terrific golfing to native lobster, here's why a trip to these islands should be on your bucket list.
1. Golf at Irie Fields, St. Kitts
You won't find typical sand traps and manicured lawns on this 18-hole course. Instead, Irie Fields features an "edible" course set on an organic farm, where you can pick bananas and juicy mangos along the way. Sweeping views of St. Barths and St. Martin make it an incredible golf experience. kittitianhill.com
2. Waterfall Hike, Nevis
Signs that read 'Leave All Contraband Behind' mark the beginning of this fantastic, unusually located three-hour hike. It begins on the Atlantic side of the island next to the Prison Farm, a surprisingly bucolic, low-risk detention center where inmates will wave and wish you a nice hike as they feed resident chickens. (They seem to follow the island's bumper sticker mantra "Too Blessed to Be Stressed.") The trail itself winds through lush forest to a beautiful waterfall and features ropes to assist hikers navigating the steepest pitches.
