St. Kitts

St Kitts has an area of 68 square miles, made up of three groups of rugged volcano peaks split by deep ravines and a low lying peninsula in the southeast where there are salt ponds and fine beaches. The dormant volcano, Mount Liamuiga (3,792ft, pronounced Lie-a-mee-ga) occupies the central part of the island.


The mountain was previously named Mount Misery by the British, but has now reverted to its Carib name, meaning ‘fertile land’. The foothills of the mountains, particularly in the north, are covered with sugar cane plantations and grassland, while the uncultivated lowland slopes are covered with forest and fruit trees.
