Saint Kitts (also known more formally as Saint Christopher Island is an island in the West Indies. The Caribbean Sea is found to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Saint Kitts and the neighbouring island of Nevis constitute one country called the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Tourism is a major and growing source of income to the island, although the number and density of resorts is less than on many other Caribbean islands. This makes it a ideal destination for tourists looking for something more secluded.
