Here you will find sixty nine square miles of an extremely diverse ecosystems starting at the beach through lagoons and lush forest up into the intoxicating mountains.

If you’re a nature lover you will feel as though you are in heaven with an abundance of colourful birds, butterflies and secretive green vervet monkeys. this island nation will surpass all your expectations when you visualize an island paradise. As we said this special ecosystems stretches from the beautiful white sandy beaches pass secluded lagoons and rainforest up into the mountains, all this in an unspoilt state. As you climb up the mountain take notice of the unique flora and fauna that you pass through on your way to the top of this dormant volcano, mr. Liamuiga, with its mild wide crater. if you are a painter this would truly be a master piece, all you have to do is copy what is laid out in-front of you. Not only will the nature lover appreciate this place of exotic beauty but all who visit it will fall in love.
When you visit this island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis it will afford you the opportunity to explore colonial harbour estates where, if your lucky, you might just catch a glimpse if a bye gone era. this was a time plantation houses surrounded by fields full of sugar cane with a unique social life that could only exist in an island culture. As you can see the ecosystems is not the be all and end all of these islands as there is an abundance of history to explore. Centuries ago these gems of the British Caribbean were considered to be of the utmost strategic importance not discounting their wealth, hence they built an impenetrable fortress standing on the top of Brimstone Hill and soon became known as the “Gibraltar of the West Indies”. over the years this fort has been ruled by both the French and British even though it was impenetrable. Today this fort is now a national park but you can still conjure up images of a time long ago when the invading forces pounded it with cannon fire, don’t you wish you could buy Nevis properties for sale at the prices charged back then?

Nevis Range, Scotland opened for the season on Saturday, Dec. 17.
The opening came a week later than planned after gusts of 130mph caused extensive damage to equipment; almost every lift was blown off cables and 15 quad chairs were damanged beyond repair.
Engineering staff at Nevis Range have been working “flat out” to replace or repair lifts. the ski area is reporting six lifts are now up and running, including the gondola.
Most of Nevis’s runs are now complete with good cover and you can easily ski back to below the top station and bottom of the quad chair.
Nevis Range will now be open 10 a.m to 4 p.m, seven days a week, weather permitting, but closed on Christmas Day. The new Pinemarten cafe-bar is now open too. Built during last winter, the building offers views over the Aonach Mor slopes.
Glencoe also received significant storm damage the previous week, but staff have been working “flat out” to repair lifts. All Scottish ski areas were open over the weekend with good snow conditions, but poor visibilty at times. Open lifts: Glencoe 5 out of 7; Glenshee 17/21; Nevis Range 6/11; Cairngorm 9/11; and the Lecht 10/13.
