If you're flying to St. Kitts with hopes of visiting Charlestown, you can reach the island of Nevis by ferry. The ferry takes 45 minutes and puts you directly in town. If you fly to Amory International, you'll land in Newcastle then take a taxi or drive yourself along the west coast headed south for between 10 and 15 minutes.
While you may have to fly through St. Kitts if you're visiting Charlestown from outside of the Caribbean, getting to this colonial town is certainly worth all of the planning and every step you have to take to make it happen.
