Make international connections from Antigua.
Use a tour company. I recommend Flamboyant Tours. Ask for Troy Hendrickson, Flamboyant Tours, P.O. Box 142, St Kitts. I got a very informative tour that included tales of the carib woman, BarbieAdd to your Trip Planner

Have the front desk of your resort set up the car. They'll pick you up, drive into town to get a license ($10-15) and away you go. Watch the curbs with those frisbee tires. Had a blow out a night......darnn that Turtle Beach.Add to your Trip Planner

Of course you have to get there by plane and I dont think there are other ways available.
If you plan to move around, the only available choice is renting a car which is not expensive. If you are not british, you will need to rent an automatic car as they drive on the left and I dont know about you, but I find it impossible to use the stick with my left hand.Add to your Trip Planner

American Eagle offers daily connections to St. Kitts from American's hub in San Juan. Leeward Islands Air Transport (LIAT) and Windward Islands Airways (Winair) serve St. Kitts from either San Juan, Puerto Rico, or the nearby islands of Antigua, Sint Maarten/Saint-Martin, and others.
Short-hop flights on local airlines—like Air St. Kitts-Nevis, Nevis Express, and St. Croix-based Coastal Air Transport—provide regular on-demand service to Nevis from St. Kitts and other islands. For a more unusual experience, take the Caribe Queen, a 45-minute ferry from Basseterre, capital of St. Kitts to Charlestown.
A departure tax is charged to all tourists leaving the Robert Llewelyn Bradshaw International Airport and for non-St. Kitts flights departing from Newcastle Airport on Nevis.
Local transportation is available via mini-buses and taxis. Fares are usually quoted in Eastern Caribbean (EC) dollars, but ask to be sure. Automobiles may be rented from a variety of agencies. A visitor's driver's license is required and can be obtained from the Police Traffic Department or car rental agency for a fee. Driving is on the left side.

Ship, Ferry or Private Boat
St Kitts, being an island, is only accessible by sea or by air. We came twice by cruise ship, but some people get there on their own small yacht. There are also ferries to some of the adjacent islands. The ferry ride between St. Kitts and Nevis takes about 45 minutes and provides beautiful views of both islands. There are six ferries. The one-way fares are as follows: Adults: XCD $25.00 incl XCD $1 tax (USD 8.00); Children under 12 years old: XCD $15.00 (USD 4.00)Related to:

Its a long way to swim, plane is the best way, flipping long way though
Taxi's are not cheap, we rented a couple of scooters, which were reasonable although not very reliable, but, the island is small and very safe, everyone is so friendlyAdd to your Trip Planner
Buses and taxis
The buses are a great and cheap way to get around on Saint Kitts.
The cost is $2.50 EC which is less than a $1 US. You can spot them on the main roads. They are vans with a plate number that starts with an H. Although they are hard to miss because they are usually brightly painted. You have to ask the if they are going where you want to go first and they will only travel the main roads.
If you need to go somewhere off the main road the taxis are plentiful. Their tags start with a T and it could be a car or van. Ask how much before you get in. They don't have meters and the fare is subject to change depending on how far you want to go.And some drivers will RIP you off. An average fare from the Main Square, known as the Circus to Frigate bay or other beaches on the peninsula should be $10 US. We found a honest man Named Greg Seaton for taxi service, call 663 4404Add to your Trip Planner
