This is a list of cities and towns in Saint Kitts and Nevis. For convenience the list is organized by parishes, which are the administrative units of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Note that the majority of these settlements (especially on Nevis) are small, and would usually be considered to be villages rather than towns.
