What to Take

  • Multi-plug adapter.
  • Bug repellent, sunblock and sun hat.
  • Plastic resealable bags for keeping phones, passports and other items dry on boat trips, hikes or in the rain.
  • Prescription medicines.
  • A mask and a snorkel to save on rental costs.

What to Wear

St Kitts and Nevis are casual places, so a bathing suit, sundress, T-shirt and shorts, and flip-flops are likely going to be your daytime uniform. Note that beach clothing should not be worn in town.

Women might want to bring a nice dress and men collared shirts and long pants if you're going to one of the few places with a 'no shorts after 6pm' policy.

A good thin waterproof jacket that you can easily slip over your clothes then pack away again is useful for the tropical downpours.

Pre-Departure Checklist

  • Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months past your arrival date.
