British press highlights scuba diving, snorkelling and sky safari in St. Kitts

BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, OCTOBER 2ND 2012 (CUOPM) – The British press is highlighting scuba diving, snorkelling and the sky safari in St. Kitts

The Daily Telegraph said in Tuesday’s edition that there is “a whole host of activities awaiting you in St. Kitts, all of which offer a completely new perspective on the magnificent Caribbean island.”

“If your vision of a Caribbean holiday includes fine beaches, lush tropical scenery and total relaxation, St. Kitts fits the bill perfectly. But beware: you may well be tempted from your sun lounger by the exciting range of activities and adventures on offer.

As the smallest nation in the Americas, the twin isles of St. Kitts and Nevis are just made for exploring and there are many rewarding ways of doing so.

A horseback trek through the surf is a great way to see the coastline. To discover the old cane trails that cut through the island’s interior, you can join an exhilarating quad-bike expedition – or hire a mountain bike and rely on your own pedal power.

You’ll appreciate another perspective on St. Kitts at Sky Safari, where five zip-lines send you soaring above the rainforest canopy in safety. And for the ultimate angle on the island and spectacular views over its Caribbean neighbours, you can sign up for a tandem skydive (December to March).

There are several PADI-accredited diving centres on the island (snorkeling is great, too), as well as outfits where you can hire jet-skis, sailboards, catamarans or sailing dinghies.

In recent years, kite surfing has become established, too. The waters around the island abound with tuna, barracuda and mahi mahi, so if you go deep-sea fishing, there’s every chance of getting a bite.
