Days of island hopping can be pretty exhausting, and I didn’t want it to be the type of holidays after which you need another holidays to recover. After exploring l islands, jungles,volcanos,

,mudbathing,  swimming with turtles I felt ready for a lazy day at the beach, and Saint Kitts was a perfect place –  relaxed and charming.
