St. Kitts and Nevis are a group of two twin islands located in the Caribbean Sea. The island is considered as a part of Central America and Caribbean. The geographic coordinates read as follows: north latitude 17.20 degrees and west longitude 62.45 degrees. The islands together cover an area of just 261 square kilometers of which 100% is land.
The highest natural peak in the country is known as Mount Liamuiga and it rests at a height of 1156 meters above sea level. The lowest point however rests at the mean sea level on the Caribbean Sea. Both the islands are volcanic in origin and were formed a long time ago.
The islands are actually mountain peaks of the immersed mountain ranges which form the edge of Caribbean Plate Tectonic. There are two very active volcanic peaks known as the Liamuiga and the Nevis Peak.
The islands have identical terrains with raised beaches and coastlines. The regular rainfall makes the land very fertile along with the volcanic ash layering all the time. 19.44% of the entire land area is considered to be arable and good for growing crops. The time between July and October every year is the time when hurricanes swirl across the country.
