St. Kitts and Nevis is a nice day's sail from St. Maarten. Depending on wind direction, departing from Phillipsurg may help you avoid a beat. Or sail over from St. Barts, no problem.

One may clear in in Basseterre, St. Kitts, or Charlestown, Nevis. The harbour at Basseterre is a bit "industrial" and customs & immigration is at the deepwater port. Perhaps the best choice is to clear in on Nevis, and pick up a mooring off Pinney's Beach with it's several laid-back beach bar/restaurants. Cruisers tend to congregate at the Double Deuce restaurant, which is at the extreme southern end of Pinney's Beach.

Then, if you like, it's only a short hop to the scenic anchorages on the south east peninsula of St. Kitts--White House Bay, Ballast Bay, Majors Bay, and Banana Bay. Or, take the ferry over to St. Kitts for a taxi tour of the island.

Weather

The climate is tropical with little variation, tempered from December through February by the steady, mild north-easterly breezes called the alizés or trade winds, followed by a slightly hotter and somewhat rainier season from May to November. The Islands lie in the track of tropical hurricanes, developing between August and October. This period has the heaviest rainfall of the year.
