About St. Kitts

The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis is in the eastern Caribbean; to the west of Antigua and Barbuda, north-west of Guadeloupe, and south-east of Puerto Rico.

St Christopher

Christopher Columbus landed here in 1493 and named St Kitts after his patron saint, St Christopher.

Map of St Kitts

The English settled here in the 1620s, although St Kitts was seized by the French several times during the 17th and 18th centuries.

The islands were ceded to Great Britain by the Treaty of Paris in 1783, with St Kitts, Nevis, and Anguilla being united as a British dependency in 1871.

The island of St Kitts, also known as St Christopher, has a central mountain range; with Mount Misery its highest peak at 1,315 m.

St. Kitts is located in the Eastern Caribbean about 150 miles from St. Croix; 1300 miles from Miami; 2000 miles from New York City and 4000 miles from London.

Nevis Island is to the south of the larger St Kitts.
