St. Kitts continues to be awarded for its unmatched experiences, cuisine, adventures, and
accommodations. St. Kitts was named Best Caribbean Beach Port in Porthole Cruise Magazine’s 2022
Readers’ Choice Awards. November also brought quality media coverage from prestigious outlets like
TripSavvy, which featured Belle Mont Farm as one of the best eco-friendly hotels; U.S. News & World Report, which spotlighted the Music Festival as a top Caribbean festival; and TripAdvisor, which published a stunning feature on St. Kitts' culinary scene.

"We are continuously grateful and inspired by the growing recognition St. Kitts is acquiring across the
world" said Ellison “Tommy” Thomspon, CEO of St. Kitts Tourism Authority. "These awards and
recognitions serve as tangible nods towards the best our beautiful island has to offer, and we are so
excited to continue sharing this magic with all our travellers."

The island was awarded the Best Caribbean Hiking Destination title in the Caribbean Journal’s Travelers’ Choice Awards 2022, the ultimate seal of approval from the world’s foremost experts on Caribbean travel.
