Boasting a unique island charm that sets it apart from the region’s established vacation haunts such as Barbados and St Barts, Nevis is unspoilt, relaxed, and easy-going. Here wide open spaces and a rich cultural heritage implore visitors to ditch the clichéd holiday itinerary of all-inclusive sea, sand, and sun, and instead immerse themselves in the real Caribbean .

Without a single traffic light nor even a hint of rush hour madness (unless you count the donkeys and goats that wander rouge along the asphalt), Nevis’ population of just over 12,000 live by the mantra “Rush Slowly”; nothing is hurried is here . Yet despite its apparent equable appeal, Nevis offers far more than your average island escape. Guide To Nevis

Looking for a taste of the real Caribbean? Here’s my insider’s guide to Nevis.

When to visit Nevis

Crowds flock to the warmth of the Caribbean during the frigid winter months (November through March), and while you won’t necessarily encounter hordes of visitors on Nevis throughout this peak season , take note that the cost of accommodation, car rentals, and some activities will increase during this time. Guide To Nevis

The Christmas season and the month of February are the busiest times on the island, however the shoulder season (late April through early June) offers the best of both worlds. Prices drop and the snow birds disperse affording the flexible traveller a reduced rate and a quiet escape.

Where to stay on Nevis

Guide To Nevis - Paradise Beach

If you’re looking at where to stay on Nevis, here’s my pick of the best hotels in Nevis.

Some of the follow links are affiliate, which means that if you book using my recommendation I get a very small percentage which helps with the cost of maintaining my blog.

For a little luxury check into Four Seasons Resort Nevis   where alongside traditional hotel suites, lavish two, three, and four bedroom villas overlook the surrounding golf course and the glistening Caribbean Sea . Offering an opulent island escape, you can choose to book a butler, private chef, and wellness professionals to be on hand to attend to your every whim, and when you’re so inclined you can stretch out on the pristine sands that fringe the resort.

View this post on Instagram Oh heeeeeyyyyyyy 😎 I’ve found the perfect place for a sundowner 🍹 Just hanging out on the balcony of my suite at @HermitageNevis with a glass of their famous rum punch! … #cocktails #thehermitage #nevis #panasonicgh4 A post shared by Wanderlust Charli 🌴 ✈️ (@wanderlustcharli) on Jan 18, 2017 at 9:46am PST

Keen to immerse yourself in the island’s heritage? Check into The Golden Rock Inn . Situated on the verdant slopes of Nevis Peak, this historic plantation property dates back to the 1800s and has been lovingly restored under the guidance of new owners Helen and Brice Marden (one of New York’s most creative couples). Boasting a minimalist chic that perfectly complements its fine Nevisian stone walls and vaulted ceilings, this property is ideal for a secluded island escape.

The Montpelier Plantation is another fabulous historic property to consider, read my review of Montpelier here .

For a rustic island stay you really can’t beat The Hermitage . The chattel house accommodations and friendly family-run vibe is unmatched anywhere else on the island.

Looking for a laid-back, eco-friendly retreat? Check into the Oualie Beach Resort . Owned by the Yearwood family whose heritage runs deep in the sugar trade of the 1600s, the property boasts quaint gingerbread cottages and is set aside a lush beachscape blanketed in coconut palms , natural grasses, and coccoloba uvifera (known locally as sea grapes).

The best beaches on Nevis

Guide To Nevis - Pinneys Beach

Image – On the sand at Pinneys Beach

Just googled ‘best beaches Nevis’ to check that the island has picture perfect ocean-front hangouts? You’re in the right place. I spend 99% of my time on the sandy beaches on Nevis.

Unlike many of its neighbours, Nevis’ beaches are understated and undeveloped . Very little property and just a handful of tasteful resorts line the water’s edge; there’s seldom anyone around to beat you to the optimum spot on the sand.

Looking for a place to lay out on a sun lounger? Cades Bay on the north west coast of the island boasts two fine beach-front watering holes – Chrishi Beach and the Yachtsman Grill – that cater to folk who want to crash out on the sand for an hour or two. Volleyball courts and views over to neighbouring St. Kitts can be found at both.

Want to watch local fisherman netting their catch in the shallows? Walk along the sands affront the Nisbet Plantation where pelicans patrol the waterline and skilled fishermen cast their nets into the crashing waves.

Keen to sunbath in seclusion? Head down to Lovers Beach where undulating sands and an idyllic island view offer a romantic hideaway for two.

Searching for the best beach walk on Nevis? Traverse the length of both Paradise Beach and Pinneys Beach and wend your way past sections of unspoiled shoreline, on to the beachfront of the striking Four Seasons Resort, and into the archetypal surrounds of the beach bars at Pinneys Beach. The round trip is a little under three miles and is the perfect morning tonic for too many glasses of rum punch the night before !

Things to do on Nevis

Guide To Nevis - Hamilton Estate Sugar Mill Ruins

Whether you’re visiting Nevis W.I. for a week or just a day, the Funky Monkey Tour is a fabulous way to soak in the sights and sounds of the island. Hop aboard a Polaris Ranger and head off the beaten track with your guide who will share with you some of the island’s best kept secrets . I was amazed at just how many sugar industry relics remain in situ, from enormous cast iron melting pots to ruined mills constructed of Nevisian stone, there’s a wealth of historic sites to explore.

Feeling adventurous? Hike the majestic 3232ft Nevis Peak. Perfect for all levels of climbers, though with a few challenging and adventurous sections, those who reach the top will be rewarded with unparalleled views that stretch out across the Caribbean Sea. Alternatively you can hire a bike from BikeNevis.com and ride the single-lane roads that cover the island. read my guide to where to cycle on Nevis for more information.

Seen the sights and keen to relax? A skippered sail aboard a yacht is the perfect remedy too much activity . Book a day’s sailing with Nevis Yacht Charters who will whisk you away for a few hours on the ocean; snorkel on vibrant coral reefs, relax on the deck in the sun, and see the mighty Mount Nevis in all its glory, clouds blanketing its peak. You can also charter a motorboat and make the most of the opportunity to go sport fishing in the Caribbean Sea.

The best beach bars on Nevis

Guide To Nevis - Long Haul Bay

Image –  A blustery sunset scene at Long Haul Bay

Pinneys Beach is the epicentre of beach-side retreats on Nevis. Here, Turtle Time, Lime, and Sunshine’s compete for custom with a high octane blend of sweet soca sounds and potent punch cocktail s.

Sunshine’s Beach Bar & Grill has a chilled West Indian ambiance and is popular not only with locals, but visitors and famous faces alike; Beyonce, John Travolta, Kevin Bacon, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Mel Gibson have all dined here over the last 24 years.

Lime is the place to party on a Friday night. Patrons can chill in the Green Flash lounge (a rooftop cocktail bar above the dance floor run by vivacious patroness Jack), and late night revellers will love its pizza shack which serves up piping hot pizzas throughout the evening.

Turtle Time Beach Bar & Grill opened in February 2015 and is fast making a name for itself as the place to be seen at Pinneys Beach. The specially constructed 360-degree bar is bright and breezy and offers spectacular views of the nightly Nevisian sunset .

Want to relax aside the sand in style? Head to my favourite hangout Chrishi Beach. The only place to be seen on the Caribbean island Nevis, rock up to this ocean-front haunt any time of the day or night and unwind to the sound of Hedda’s unique playlists that perfectly complement the stylish interiors of this up-scale beach bar .

My food lovers guide to where to eat on Nevis

The island’s beach bars are a great option for budget friendly local fare, however there’s also a wide range of international cuisines available across the island. Here are a few of my favourites:

Bananas Bistro – international flavours with Caribbean flare

Oozong island charm Bananas Bistro is hidden away in the upper reaches of the historic Hamilton Estate and is surrounded by over an acre of lush tropical garden where hummingbirds flit to and fro and unprecedented sunset views offer nightly entertainment.

Indian Summer – the best Indian cuisine in the Caribbean

From the tandoori-fired flat breads dripping in butter and the sumptuous samosa chaats, to the luxurious murgh makhani and mango lassi (that a fellow dinner implored me to try on hearing it was my first time to the restaurant), bold flavours abound at Indian Summer ; a must-try for anyone visiting the island.

Yachtman’s Grill – a smart-causal ocean-front eatery

The  Yachtsman’s Grill’s  ethos of fresh, local, and seasonal farm-to-table produce is elevated by chef Mary Parks’ impressive classical culinary training. A Le Cordon Bleu graduate yet an island girl at heart, diners will find stunning, wood-fired pizzas and Caribbean flavours on the menu in this chic island eatery.

Passion Bar & Grill – a casual local restaurant serving island fayre

Reader Marnie sent me this recommendation after visiting the Nevis – In case you don’t know it, I wanted to add that we ate at  Passion . It’s down the hill and to the right of Montpelier. Apparently you need to call first as she might not be open if there are no customers, but the setting was lovely and the food was great.

This is terrific. I’ve visited Nevis every year for many, many years. I’m surprised you didn’t mention The Hermitage Plantation Inn. It is the most authentic Caribbean inn on Nevis, is beautiful, has really good food and is in the mid price point. I’ll attach their website below for. Hope you can look it up some time. It’s well worth notice!

Hi Pam, thanks for taking the time to share your recommendations. The Hermitage is indeed a fantastic property and well worth a visit for their fresh mango juice alone! However to keep this guide within a reasonable word count I had to omit quite a few of Nevis’ best bits, there’s just so many wonderful spots on the island!

Such a comprehensive overview of Nevis. Thank you Charli for taking time out and writing on Gem of the Caribbean Nevis…Naturally

Thank you for your kind comment Devon! I’ve so enjoyed my time on Nevis and will be very sad to leave.

This may be just what I need….

Nevis looks like a beautiful destination! I have yet to explore much of the Caribbean outside of Cuba and Puerto Rico, but I am really hoping to change that in 2016 and 2017!

Nice write up on Nevis but stunned you have omitted The Hermitage and Montpelier Plantation. They have to be some of the best Inns/ hotels in the West Indies.

Furthermore I am surprised that you haven’t mentioned some of the amazing private homes for rent on the Island.

Anyway.. I am sure you have your reasons.

Thanks for your comment. Both Montpelier and The Hermitage are fantastic properties! When collating my guide I chose to include a range of properties for different budgets, and as I am sure you are aware Nevis boasts so many fantastic accommodation options, I could dedicate an entire piece to showcasing each one (in fact I’d love to do just that!). However this is a much broader guide to the island and so I had to narrow down my choices to keep the guide easily digestible for online readers!

Yes I agree with you Charlie. Seriously I also never heard of this beautiful place before. Thanks for sharing this informative post with us. All pics are Phenomenal. As I am nature lover so love the images of birds and beaches the most in your post.

Awesome pictures! I traveled from Venezuela up to Puerto Rico through the Lesser Antillas but didn’t make it to nevis (too many islands, hehe). Looks really cool.. maybe next time! Keep it up!

Caribbean Islands are my dream. Nice post 😉

Beautiful!!

Great to hear that there are still some Caribbean Islands unspoilt by tourism. Did you spend all your time in Nevis? Or did you explore a little of St. Kitts, too?

I actually spent three months house and pet sitting on St. Kitts in 2015 so have explored the island quite a bit. Are you heading to the islands soon? I love them both but Nevis is definitely my favourite.

Thanks for sharing, Charli! We’re heading to Nevis for a quick getaway in a few weeks and are looking forward to taking in the chill island vibes. Cheers!

Oh fabulous! You’ll have such a wonderful time I’ve no doubt. Where are you staying? My top tip is to take a trip with Nevis Yacht Charters. There’s something very special about the view of Nevis’ shores from the ocean!

We’re finalizing reservations now, but I believe we’re staying at Montpelier (it’s a similar vibe to our resort in Anguilla). Very much looking forward to escaping from one little island to another! 🙂

It looks wonderful! I visited just for an hour or so when on a boat trip from St Kitts, which I adored. I’d love to go back one day and see more of both islands.

Great facts. Its really a beautiful place to visit.

It sounds a fascinating island and the photos look divine. I’m not sure about the headline though. I’m just not a fan of the now widely used format of introducing a place with the “…that you’ve probably never heard of” construct.

Very beautiful island! I would love to interact with the fisherfolks there.

Nevis is such a beautiful place. Hidden gems of the Caribbean.

We’ll be stopping in Bassterre, St Kitts and Nevis in June 2019 as part of a family reunion cruise on Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Symphony of the Seas. In your post, I noticed that you said all travelers are required to get a visitor’s driver’s license. Do you have to get one if you’re only going to be there for the day? Just curious. Thanks.

Hey Cece, so fab to hear you’re heading to St Kitts! You’ll only need a driver’s license if you plan to drive whilst on the islands, and if you’re renting a car the rental company will arrange this when you pick up your vehicle.

If you’re only on St Kitts for the day, and with a small group of family, I’d suggest hiring a driver to take you on your own adventure. Whenever I fly into St Kitts I use a local taxi company called Seamoss Taxi’s – they would definitely be able to put you in touch with someone who could act as a tour guide for the day and take you to see some of the best spots on the island. Add Seamoss to Whatsapp – +1 869 662 6192 and give him a shout closer to your date of travel.

I’d recommend the following on St Kitts:

Brimstone Hill Fortress – https://wanderlusters.com/brimstone-hill-fortress-visitor-guide/

Lunch at Kitittian Hill – http://www.bellemontfarm.com/food/the-kitchen/

Relaxing on the sand at Reggae Beach – google pictures

Alternatively you could charter a skippered yacht and spend the day cruising around St Kitts and Nevis – http://www.nevisyachtcharters.com/charter-options/

Hope that helps!

Safe travels

Fabulous article. My wife and I have just purchased a place on Pinney’s beach and cannot wait to make this island our winter retirement home. We took a bit of a wild leap, having visited St Kitts but not Nevis, but through articles like yours, we fell in love with the idea of Nevis. Cannot wait to explore all these hidden gems you describe so eloquently!

Would love to see more of Nevis to actually see the hotels, restaurants, (casinos), proximity to beach and fun things to do. I am a senior (78) but have no problems and if I could see a brochure of the Island I would be happy. THANKS!!!!

I will be traveling to St Kitts Oct 29-Nov 5 with my husband and another couple. We will be staying a week at the Marriott. Would love some ideas for St Kitts while staying there and nearby Nevis for a day trip(maybe a 2nd day too). Thank you.

Thank you for your comment. How exciting that you’re soon to visit. My number one recommendation for your stay is to view the islands from the ocean with Nevis Yacht Charters. You get a really unique perspective of the volcanic landscapes from the water. Captain Miles will collect you by tender from the Marriott.

Visit – https://nevisyachtcharters.com/

Brimstone Hill on St Kitts is also well worth a visit. The history is fascinating and the views of neighbouring Sint Eustatius, Sabre, and Montserrat are breathtaking.

Visit – https://wanderlusters.com/brimstone-hill-fortress-visitor-guide/

Head to Belle Mont Farm on St Kitts for lunch, it’s a fantastic resort tucked away in the hills to the north of the island and again, has amazing views from the terrace of the dining room!

Visit – https://bellemontfarm.com/

Hope that’s helpful.

Safe travels 🙂

Hey Charli, enjoyed your blog very much. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences. I have a 10-day trip booked from NY to St Estatius (Statia) and thought I could easily jump on a ferry and go island hopping on any given day, but that doesn’t sound easy at all. I can get to St Kitts as the Makanna Ferry offers a round trip on Fridays, but I cannot find how to do the same to Nevis. My trip will not be complete without Nevis as I really have my heart set on it. Please help!

This place is beautiful! Would love to go there!

Nevis may be small and less developed than big sister St. Kitts, but this 35.9-square-mile gem in the Leeward Islands has a ton to offer travelers. For vacationers keen to escape the throngs of sun-seekers in tourist-trodden Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas, it provides an unspoiled slice of paradise that brims with natural beauty, history, warm hospitality, and relaxed vibes. 

The consistently warm temperatures and sunny days offer picture-perfect weather for taking advantage of the many outdoor activities. The primary attraction for many hikers and cyclists, Nevis Peak steals the show. Travelers can explore popular offshore dive sites and admire the Georgian-style architecture in the capital city of Charlestown or unwind with sandy beaches, thermal hot springs, and breezy resort pools. Foodies love Nevis because it’s among the most exciting food destinations in the Caribbean . Fun fact: Nevis is also the birthplace of many celebrities, athletes, and historical figures — including Alexander Hamilton. 

Here are the best things to eat, see, and do on Nevis, according to local experts.

Four Seasons Resort Nevis

Poised on Pinney's Beach, the Four Seasons Resort Nevis stands out as a luxurious yet laid-back option that’s particularly well-suited for families with three outdoor pools, four restaurants, a bar, tennis, golf, a kids club, and a spa. The accommodations range from well-appointed rooms to spacious villas that sleep groups in comfort and style. 

Paradise Beach Nevis

Travelers who enjoy the privacy of a house and the perks of a resort will love Paradise Beach Nevis , a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World that’s a shell’s throw from the soft sand and shimmering sea. Ideal for families or groups, the vacation-worthy villas come in configurations of two, three, and four bedrooms and have kitchens and pools. The friendly concierge team is always happy to arrange excursions, dinner reservations, and activities.

Best Things to Do on Nevis 

Pinney's beach.

Beautiful beaches are top of mind for most travelers visiting the Caribbean. Pinney’s Beach looks like a postcard with white sand, turquoise water, and swaying palm trees. It’s also home to some bars (hello, rum punch) and casual restaurants for when you need some sustenance between swimming and sunning.

Nevis Peak rises 3,232 feet above sea level and is one of the most popular attractions for active travelers on the island. “With the help of ropes, branches, and an experienced guide, the challenging climb to the top is well worth it for stunning panoramas,” says Mellissa Seabrookes, guest services manager at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis . 

Nevis Botanical Gardens

Not far from the capital of Charlestown, Nevis Botanical Gardens teems with tropical flora and exudes an oasis-like environment. Walking around the fragrant flowers, leafy shrubs, orchid terraces, lily ponds, and fountains feels like stepping inside a movie set for a vacation flick. 

The natural beauty of Nevis never ends, but it’s not all visible at first glance since so much of the island is hilly and shrouded in jungle. “ATV Tours take adventurers off the beaten track through dirt roads to discover far-flung corners of the island you might not see otherwise,” says ToursByLocals Nevis guide Janeel Boon . 

Museum of Nevis History

For history buffs and fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical, Seabrookes suggests visiting the Museum of Nevis History in Charlestown, which sits on the same property as the old house where Alexander Hamilton was born.

Sunshine's Beach Bar & Grill

Located just steps down the beach from the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, Sunshine's Beach Bar & Grill is a favorite of residents and visitors alike with great food, cocktails, and a lively atmosphere. “The grilled local spiny lobster, fish, shrimp, chicken, and ribs are served with garden salad and seasoned rice,” says Seabrookes. “And it’s famous for a signature rum punch called ‘Killer Bees.’”

Passions Bar & Grill

“While it’s hard to pick favorites when there’s so much great food on the island, I really like Passions Bar & Grill in the countryside of Nevis,” says Boon. “It’s a place of beauty and authentic tastes with fantastic food, a friendly staff, and an idyllic location.” The fresh fish and pork ribs are always crowd pleasers. 

For the perfect place to soak in the coastal Caribbean vibes, Boon recommends Drift . It’s a wonderful island restaurant perched right by the ocean. While savoring a lovely meal of fish cakes, coconut shrimp, and West Indian curry — or maybe a burger with secret sauce — you can see and hear the gentle turquoise waves. It’s also a gorgeous spot for golden hour cocktails. 

A hidden gem tucked away in the rainforest of historic Hamilton Estate, Banana’s oozes charm and eye-catching views. Of course, it’s not just the enchanting environs that entice diners. The food is some of the best on the island. “The menu spotlights a delectable seasonal array of unforgettable Caribbean-meets-European dishes,” says Seabrookes. 

One of the top-rated restaurants on the island for years, The Rocks at Golden Rock Inn infuses Caribbean flavors with eclectic global flair. The artfully plated fresh-caught fish, lobster, crab cakes, and conch chowder paired with rum punch and the ambiance of an alfresco dining deck overlooking the sea keep diners coming back for more. 

Nevis enjoys a warm, tropical climate that’s cooled by trade winds. Tourism peaks during the dry season, which spans from December through April. The period between Christmas and New Year is particularly popular thanks to Carnival, also known as Sugar Mas, with vibrant celebrations involving steel drums, dancing, and food. The crowds thin and hotel rates drop in May and June. Like many Caribbean islands, it’s best to avoid hurricane season (June through November) when the weather can be unpredictable and many businesses close.

The vast majority of travelers will fly into Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) on St. Kitts. From there, it’s a short water taxi or ferry to Nevis. It’s also possible to hop on a small plane to Vance W. Amory International Airport (NEV). 

Most people opt to rent a car to get around Nevis. Moped and bicycle rentals are available, and taxis also operate on the island.

​​​​​​​​Nevis, a six-minute water taxi ride from the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, has a slo-mo vibe (together, the two islands form a small country). Goats and sheep graze everywhere, even beside the airport’s single runway; and in Charlestown, the sleepy capital that’s dotted with Georgian-style stone buildings, many shops close around 5 p.m. on weekdays and stay closed on weekends. With its unspoiled beaches, Alexander Hamilton’s birthplace is the less developed and serene Caribbean many visitors crave. The Museum of Nevis is a good place to learn about the island’s slave past. Remnants of sugar and cotton plantations that exploited slave labor until the late 1830s are throughout Nevis; some are now accommodations or restaurants, a complicated reality on this tiny island. These days, Nevis is looking to a sustainable future. It plans to start tapping into its font of geothermal energy in June, with a goal to make the island 100-percent fossil-fuel-free for electricity generation, hopefully within two years, according to the island’s premier, Mark Brantley.

Recommendations

  • Drift , an informal restaurant with a postcard-worthy waterfront location, embraces the island’s low-key vibe.
  • Hiking the nature trail at the base of Nevis Peak wraps you in a landscape lush with native plants that have medicinal and culinary properties.
  • Museum of Nevis History and the Alexander Hamilton Museum offer insights into the people, places and events that contributed to the life and times of the island.
  • Nevis Adventure Tours offers guided cycling tours of the island’s windward side.
  • Botanical Gardens of Nevis is an expansive, verdant property threaded with winding paths and Asian sculptures.
  • Lovers Beach is a wild stretch of sand that’s completely undeveloped and secluded.
  • Bath Hot Springs are piping hot thermal pools south of Charlestown that have long been said to treat and cure a host of conditions.
  • Museum Gift Shop , at the Alexander Hamilton Museum, has shelves brimming with locally made items, from pottery to bird feeders.
  • Totally Bananas Boutique , on the property of Bananas Bistro, carries unique, upscale garments and accessories curated by the owner from around the world.
  • Bananas Bistro offers simple yet eclectic fare in a tropical garden setting.
  • Lime Beach Bar has a new beachfront area with perfect-for-lounging cabanas facing the Caribbean.
  • Indigo is a stylish restaurant on the grounds of the Montpelier Plantation and Beach.
  • Passion Bar and Grill is a modest-looking eatery serving down-home Nevisian cuisine, such as fish in Creole sauce.
  • Yachtsman Grill is a relaxed waterfront restaurant with a diverse wine cellar and seafood pizzas.
  • Dating from the mid-1700s, the Montpelier Plantation and Beach is a 60-acre former sugar plantation at the base of Nevis Peak. The flower-bedecked setting has 16 bungalows and two suites, including the two-bedroom Tamarind Villa with its private pool that looks out to the sea. (Premier rooms start at 689 E.C. dollars, or $255; Tamarind Villa starts at 2,889 E.C. dollars)
  • Solitude reigns at the Golden Rock Inn , where six brightly painted cottages (and the two-story, cone-shaped stone sugar mill) are nestled within colorful gardens designed by the famed landscape architect Raymond Jungles. Garden rooms start at 810 E.C. dollars, or stay in the repurposed Sugar Mill from 1,215 E.C. dollars.
  • A family-owned historic property, the Hermitage Inn offers 13 guest rooms scattered among different cottages (some are available for entirely private bookings), within a leafy landscape that once grew sugar cane. Rooms from 513 E.C. dollars.
  • Find a vacation rental in St. Paul Parish, which has numerous dining and drinking options, including those along Pinney’s Beach.
  • The most efficient way of getting around the island is by taxi . Locals prefer the inexpensive, privately run minibuses , which shouldn’t cost more than 5 E.C. dollars (cash) per ride. There are marked minibus stops in Charlestown; if you’re in the countryside, just stand on the side of the main road and extend your hand (the wait can be long).

Nevis Travel Guide

NEVIS . Mere mention of the name conjures up images of the exotic, the unspoiled – the Caribbean of your wildest dreams. The smaller and more tranquil of the twin islands that comprise the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis, this sleepy, 36 square-mile gem appeals to sophisticated, as well as active nature-loving travelers seeking a true taste of old-world West Indian charm. Don’t look for any glitzy high-rise hotels here.

Yes, there’s an extremely posh Four Seasons boasting one of the Caribbean’s finest golf courses, but everything else is decidedly more uncommon. Private guest houses and villas offer wonderful seclusion amidst the island’s verdant hillsides, but the real deal here is an amazing collection of plantation inns dating back to the island’s colonial past. Nisbet , Montpelier , Hermitage – the names are legendary in the annals of luxurious hospitality, serving royals, celebs, and anyone else sporting the means with an unmatched mix of discretion, grace, and charm.

When you’re not being pampered, Nevis offers thrilling hiking, historic attractions, surprising cycling adventures, and a local bar scene with brews like Skol Beer along Pinney’s Beach that’s tough to beat. All of it plays out around majestic Nevis Peak, a towering picture-postcard volcano stretching 3,232 feet into the clouds.

Nevis Is a Hub for Adventure, Design, & Relaxation

Satisfy your travel needs at this caribbean island, then wash it all down with a local rum punch..

Nevis Is a Hub for Adventure, Design, & Relaxation

My first full day in Nevis, a smaller island off the coast of St. Kitts, I spent the morning lugging my body weight up the side of a mountain—ropes were involved—hacking through the jungle-like terrain as I ascended into a cloud at the top of Nevis Peak. The second, I was sunning myself by a pool enclosed in the most eclectic garden I’ve ever seen. The third, I was indulging in a massage beneath a sunset and waving palm fronds. This 36 square-mile island is laden with jungles and framed in beaches. Peppered throughout this sleepy town of roughly 12,000 residents, you’ll find historic touches in the form of crumbling churches and a scenic main street. Essentially, there’s something for every traveler.

I split my time between a beachfront resort ( The Four Seasons Nevis ) and an artist-designed getaway ( Golden Rock Inn ) nestled in the mountains. Plan your trip in such a fashion to fully experience all facets of the island. Though these accommodations are full experiences in themselves, the island's capital, Charlestown, offers a glimpse of the local scene, plus a few food haunts that cannot be missed. Think: the catch of the day smothered in a coconut sauce you will not soon forget. My final pro tip: Nevis is known for their rum punch (often referred to as the "killer bee" thanks to the Sunshine Beach Bar), so be sure to sample one every chance you get. Oh, and order a side of hot sauce with every dish.

If I've convinced you to book a trip, find more on where to stay, what to do, and where to eat in Nevis, below.

Where to Stay

New York artists Helen and Brice Marden converted this former sugar estate dating back to the 1800s into a destination that prioritizes Nevis’ natural landscape and the owners' unique design sensibilities. Nestled in the jungle-like terrain, 11 rooms (one of which is literally a converted sugar mill) add to the intimate feel of the property. The design inclination leaks through in the details ranging from Patricia Urquoila’s Morosso and Tropicalia chairs sprinkled about to a Rene Ricard painting in the bar.

The gardens themselves, set across 100 acres, are a draw in and of themselves. (If you don’t end up staying here, remember the grounds are open for garden tours, so be sure to stop by.) Ask the gardener to knock a few mangoes off a tree for you (be warned, they are harder to catch than they look) and watch out for monkeys lurking about—they enjoy the mangoes as well.

The small estate promotes a very relaxed feel. I suggest spending as much time as possible lounging by the pool, which is framed with unique foliage. Order a fresh popsicle mid-afternoon then mosey down to the restaurant for dinner. But if you’re adventure-inclined, the hotel will set you up with any outside activities you’re interested in (see more on that below).

The Four Seasons Nevis

The private beach at Four Seasons Nevis.

A complement to Golden Rock’s secluded jungle energy, the Four Seasons Nevis satisfies all of your resort desires. Stroll inside the entry building and you’re met with a sweeping glance of the pool and beach—instant serenity. One-hundred-eighty-nine rooms, furnished with a lavish dose of beachy Caribbean charm with a slight retro nod, extend across the property of 350 acres and boast tantalizing views of the ocean and Nevis Peak.

Stroll along nearly three miles of beachfront or (my personal favorite) clock no steps whatsoever on a lounge chair beneath a beach cabana, barring those it takes to plunge into the water—beach or pool, it's up to you. Grab snorkeling gear on the beach to catch a glimpse of the fish, turtles, stingrays, and more swimming in the crystal blue depths. Then head down the dock for a sunset cocktail on the water or experience a rum tasting at the Crowned Monkey Rum Bar.

Take full advantage of this resort destination in the spa. Grab a massage in a traditional cottage that looks more like a tiny gingerbread house than a resort. For a real indulgence, you and your loved one can book the Spa Under the Stars—a private outdoor spa experience followed by a secluded dinner.

Stroll Through Historic Charlestown

The Museum of Nevis History located in Charlestown.

Though these hotels offer an immersive experience in themselves, I highly recommend journeying outside of the properties to get a feel for the island’s culture. Charlestown is Nevis' capital and is very small, so you don't need more than a more morning here. First, head to the Museum of Nevis History located at Alexander Hamilton’s birthplace. (Hamilton is a highly-valued historical figure in Nevis). The island is also covered in beautiful old churches, dating back to the 1600s in some instances you'll catch a glimpse of on your stroll. All of which are set against the backdrop of a tropical landscape on one side and expansive ocean views on the other.

Take a Hike

The views before you enter the cloud as you climb Nevis Peak.

Tread with caution (both literally and metaphorically). I personally attempted (and completed, might I humbly add) the Nevis Peak, but I don’t recommend this for those looking for a leisurely hiking experience. I would classify this four-hour excursion as more of a climb than a hike—expect to have your hand around a rope most of the way up—but it is very satisfying to complete.

For those interested in a more blissful experience, Ocean Point leaves from Golden Rock Inn and extends about two hours in length. The Nevis Waterfall Hike offers (you guessed it) waterfall views, if that's your preference. Your hotel will likely be able to facilitate these activities for you.

Swim in the Hot Springs

The Nevis Hot Springs can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

This one was admittedly a bit of an odd experience, but locals swear by the hot water’s restorative properties. Historically a hot spot for noblemen and dignitaries, the spring water is heated naturally by the island’s volcano. Wade into a small tiled pool to test the theory for yourself and experience over 100-degree Fahrenheit temperature for yourself. Plus, stroll by the Bath Hotel on your way over—it was built way back in 1778.

Where to Eat

Order the snapper at The Rocks.

The Rocks is the in-house restaurant at Golden Rock, but it caters to more than just hotel patrons. Ranked the second best restaurant on the island behind Indian Summer (more casual post-work fare), The Rocks offers an array of handcrafted cocktails and a mixture of fresh meat and seafood. Make sure to test the Conch Chowder and the Snapper (and a rum punch, of course).

The Hermitage Inn

Inside the historic Hermitage Inn.

Worth a visit for the interiors alone, the Hermitage Inn is one of the oldest wooden houses in the Caribbean. The main house is quaint and features a wood-paneled bar and a rather well-stocked library. Head to the restaurant for breakfast—I’ve heard the pumpkin pancakes are to die for—or sample some rum at the bar.

Passion Bar & Grill

Passion's fish of the day doused in coconut sauce.

At Passion Bar & Grill , you will really feel like a local as you make eye contact with goats while enjoying your meal. But don’t let that deter you. This was one of the best meals I had on my trip. Quench your thirst with a fresh juice (mango ginger, if you’re asking) then try the catch of the day and go for the coconut sauce when asked your preference (it’s what the house recommends). Whatever you do, do not leave without trying a corn fritter.

Adventures in the Caribbean: A Visit to Nevis

nevis travel dundee

If you're looking for the perfect tropical escape, the Caribbean is always a great choice. The region is well known for offering travelers plenty of sunshine, beautiful beaches, and lovely resorts where they can relax and forget about life for awhile. But, that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of things for adventure travelers to see and do there as well, as we learned on a recent visit to Nevis . 

The sister-island to St. Kitts , Nevis is a bit off the beaten path compared to some of the other locations in the Caribbean. That is simply part of its charm however, as it is even more relaxed and quiet than most other places in the region. With no large resorts dominating the shoreline and no massive cruise ships dropping by to expel passengers onto its beaches, Nevis is a great place for those looking to getaway from the crowds. On this island you'll get a more authentic and natural experience that blends history and culture seamlessly.

Here's what we recommend you see and do while there. 

Active Adventures

Hike the Source Trail Nevis has a number of excellent hiking trails on the island, but one of the best is the Source Trail. So named because it takes trekkers into the surrounding cloud forest and up to the island's source of fresh water. The hike isn't especially hard, although slick rocks and mud can make footing precarious at points. The warm, humid forest is lush, beautiful, and home to much of the island's vervet monkey population, which you may spot swinging through the trees from time to time.

The trail begins at the Golden Rock Inn and winds its way through a couple of small villages before entering the forest. While the route is easy to follow, and doesn't require a guide, for safety reasons it is a good idea to hire one nonetheless.

Climb to the Summit of Nevis Peak For a more challenging hike, consider making the climb up to the summit of Nevis Peak . At 3232 feet (985 meters), it is easily the tallest point on the island. This trek definitely requires hiring a guide, as it involves some steep grades, scrambling over tough terrain, and even some rope work. But, the view from the top is spectacular, and worth the effort.

We recommend contacting Sunrise Tours to help safely see you to the top and back down.

Go Road Cycling Nevis is a small island, just 36 sq. miles (93 sq. km) in size. This, coupled with the fact that it is a very bike-friendly place, makes it an excellent destination to explore on two wheels. Riding the ring road – which runs for 21 miles (33 km) – around the perimeter of the island only takes a couple of hours to complete, but some of the views along the way are utterly spectacular. On one side you'll find towering peaks stretching high over head, while on the other you'll find white-sand beaches with the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean lapping at the shores.

Bike rentals  are easy to find, but be warned. The roads do have some serious hills at certain points which can catch first-time riders by surprise, including the infamous "Anaconda Hill" leading out of Charlestown. 

Go Mountain Biking Nevis is dotted with old sugar plantations that date as far back as the 17th century, and there is no better way to see them than on a mountain bike. The trails around the island are definitely not technical in any way, making it easier for non-mountain bikers to come along for the ride. Again, there are some steep hills in certain points, but the payoff is worth the effort. We even rode through and open meadow surrounded by cloud forest as vervet monkeys dashed out of the grass and into the trees. It was a wonderful experience to say the least.

We recommend contacting Nevis Adventure Tours to set up your ride. 

Scuba Dive and Snorkel As with most of the Caribbean, Nevis is a great place to go scuba diving and snorkeling too. There are numerous dive sites within a short boat ride from shore, with coral reefs, thousands of fish, and even a few wreck dives ready to welcome visitors. The water off Nevis is incredibly clear and calm – particularly on the Caribbean side of the island – with depths that vary from fairly shallow to quite deep. There is even a certified gold level PADI dive center on the island that can provide information and connect travelers with guides. 

Take a Funky Monkey Tour Another great way to explore the history and culture of Nevis is to join a Funky Monkey Tour . These 2+ hour long excursions take travelers into some of the more remote areas of the island aboard a 4x4 ute vehicle. Along the way, you'll visit old sugar plantations, drive along beaches and through the cloud forest, before leaving the pavement behind to see some of the oldest historical sites in the entire Caribbean . If you're lucky, you may even spot a namesake monkey or two along the way. 

Test Your Athletic Prowess While the lifestyle on Nevis is definitely laid back and relaxed, that doesn't mean they don't take their endurance events seriously. In October each year, the island hosts an annual triathlon that attracts athletes from all over the world. And in March, swimmers take to the water to compete in the Nevis to St. Kitts Cross Channel Swim, which covers 2.5 miles (4 km) of open water between the two islands. Either one of these events is a true challenge of dedication and endurance. 

Where to Stay

The Hermitage Boutique Resort While Nevis isn't filled with glitzy resorts, it has its fair share of amazing places to stay. For instance, the Four Seasons has a lovely hotel on the island, although those who are looking for a more authentic Caribbean experience may want to forego that spot in favor of the historic and absolutely beautiful Hermitage instead. Here, visitors will stay in quaint cottages that are as comfortable and inviting as they are unique and quaint. Nestled in the hills above Charlestown, the Hermitage offers a quiet escape from the town below. Take a dip in the pool, grab some dinner at the restaurant, and soak up the atmosphere on the grounds of this family-owned and operated establishment. It is one of those charming places that will stay with you long after you've gone, and if you're lucky you may even spot a celebrity or two hanging out there.

Where to Eat and Drink

Golden Rock Inn The aforementioned Golden Rock Inn isn't just the starting point for the Source Trail, but also a lovely restaurant and bar as well. The delicious food , which includes fresh fish caught locally, is matched by the beautiful ambiance, this is simply enchanting at any time of the day, but especially so in the evening. After your meal, be sure to have a stroll through the lush garments that surround the place as well. They are definitely worth a look.

The Gin Trap One of the newer eating establishments on the Island,  The Gin Trap offers a menu filled with tasty dishes, including an excellent steak and plenty of sea food as well. Definitely try the poached lobster, and wash it down with one of the numerous cocktails that can be found on the menu. With 101 different types of gin to sample, you're sure to find something here that you'll like. 

Bananas Restaurant Excellent barbecue ribs in the Caribbean? Who knew! That's just one of many delicious dishes you'll find on the menu at Bananas Restaurant , which combines rustic charm with great food and amazing drinks. Hidden away on the Hamilton Estate (Yes, that Hamilton ), this is a wonderful place to grab lunch or dinner when you want to escape to a more quiet corner of the island. Save room for dessert, the banana crème brûlée is wonderful. 

This is just a simple taste of what Nevis has to offer. I didn't even have time to mention the opportunities to soak in the hot springs for instance, nor that the island has its very own drag strip.  But that leaves you with some things to discover on your own, which is one of the joys of travel after all.

With its lush rainforests, pristine beaches, and breathtaking views of volcanic peaks, Nevis is a paradise for nature lovers. The island is home to an incredible variety of flora and fauna, making it a haven for hikers, birdwatchers, and nature enthusiasts. The famous Nevis Peak, a dormant volcano covered in dense rainforest, offers a challenging but rewarding climb with panoramic views at the summit.

Beyond its natural beauty, Nevis is steeped in history. The island was once a major sugar-producing colony and remnants of its colonial past can still be seen in the sugar mills and historic plantation houses dotting the landscape. The capital city of Charlestown is a living museum, with beautifully preserved Georgian architecture and charming cobblestone streets.

One of the greatest treasures of Nevis is its friendly and welcoming people. The locals take pride in their island and are always ready to share their stories and traditions with visitors. From lively festivals to authentic cultural experiences, Nevis offers a glimpse into the vibrant Caribbean spirit.

Whether you’re looking for relaxation or adventure, Nevis has it all. So pack your bags and get ready to experience the beauty and charm of this Caribbean paradise. In this comprehensive Nevis Travel Guide, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to plan your perfect trip, from the best time to visit to the top attractions and activities. So get ready to fall in love with Nevis and create memories that will last a lifetime!

When to Visit

Nevis enjoys a pleasant tropical climate throughout the year, with warm temperatures and gentle sea breezes. The island experiences two main seasons: the dry season and the rainy season. The best time to visit Nevis depends on your preferences and interests.

The dry season, which runs from November to May, is considered the peak tourist season in Nevis. During this time, the island experiences minimal rainfall and offers sunny days with temperatures ranging from the low 70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit (low 20s to high 20s Celsius). The dry season is ideal for outdoor activities such as snorkeling, hiking, and exploring the island’s natural wonders. It is also the perfect time to relax on the stunning beaches and enjoy the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. However, it is worth noting that this is also the busiest time of the year, with higher hotel rates and larger crowds.

The rainy season, which spans from June to October, is characterized by more frequent rainfall and higher humidity levels. While this may deter some travelers, the rainy season has its own unique charm. The landscape becomes lush and vibrant, and the island’s waterfalls are at their fullest. Additionally, hotel rates tend to be lower during this time, and you may find fewer crowds, allowing for a more intimate experience. However, it’s important to keep in mind that there is a higher chance of tropical storms and hurricanes during the rainy season, so it is advisable to stay updated on weather forecasts and travel advisories.

Ultimately, the best time to visit Nevis depends on your preferences. If you prefer sunny and dry weather and don’t mind the higher tourist numbers, the dry season is ideal. On the other hand, if you value lower prices and don’t mind the occasional rainfall, the rainy season can offer a more affordable and tranquil experience.

No matter when you choose to visit, Nevis will captivate you with its natural beauty, rich history, and warm Caribbean charm. So pack your bags and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey to this paradise island!

How to Get There

Getting to Nevis is relatively easy, thanks to its well-connected transportation options. While the island does not have its own international airport, it is easily accessible by air and sea.

For travelers coming from abroad, the most common route is to fly into the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) on the neighboring island of St. Kitts. From there, you can take a short 10-minute taxi ride to the ferry terminal at Basseterre. Regular ferry services operate between St. Kitts and Nevis, with an average travel time of 45 minutes. The ferry ride offers stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and is a convenient and scenic way to reach the island.

If you prefer to fly directly to Nevis, you can also take a connecting flight from several regional airports, including San Juan in Puerto Rico, Antigua, and St. Maarten. Nevis is served by the Vance W. Amory International Airport (NEV), which handles both domestic and limited international flights.

Once you’ve arrived in Nevis, getting around the island is fairly straightforward. Taxis are readily available at the ferry terminal and airport, and you can also arrange private transfers through your accommodation. Many visitors also choose to rent a car or scooter to explore the island at their own pace. However, it’s important to note that driving is on the left-hand side of the road in Nevis, as the island follows the British driving system.

Additionally, if you’re staying at a resort or hotel, they often provide shuttle services to popular attractions and nearby towns. Bicycles are also a popular mode of transportation for shorter distances, allowing you to enjoy the island’s scenic beauty as you pedal along.

With its convenient transportation options, getting to Nevis and navigating the island is a breeze. So pack your bags, book your tickets, and get ready to embark on a memorable journey to this Caribbean paradise!

Visa Requirements

Visiting Nevis is a hassle-free experience for most travelers, as many nationalities enjoy visa-free entry for tourism purposes. However, it is important to check the specific visa requirements based on your nationality to ensure a smooth journey.

For citizens of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and most European Union countries, no visa is required for stays of up to 90 days. These travelers only need a valid passport with at least six months of validity beyond their planned departure date. Upon arrival, they will receive an entry stamp allowing them to stay in Nevis for the duration of their authorized visit.

For citizens of other countries, a visa may be required for entry into Nevis. The visa application process is typically handled through the nearest Nevisian diplomatic mission or consular office. It is advisable to check with the nearest Nevisian embassy or consulate well in advance of your planned trip to determine the specific visa requirements and application procedures.

It’s important to note that visa requirements are subject to change. Therefore, it is recommended to visit the official website of the Nevis Department of Immigration or consult with the nearest Nevisian embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding visa requirements.

Once you have checked the visa requirements and obtained the necessary travel documents, you can look forward to exploring the stunning beauty of Nevis, from its pristine beaches to its lush rainforests and historic sites.

Remember to check your passport’s expiration date and ensure you have sufficient validity to meet the entry requirements. It is also a good idea to make photocopies or have electronic copies of your passport, visa, and other important travel documents in case of loss or theft.

With the visa requirements taken care of, it’s time to pack your bags, plan your itinerary, and experience the wonders that await you in Nevis!

Currency and Money Exchange

The official currency of Nevis is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (XCD). However, the US dollar is widely accepted and used throughout the island. ATMs are available in major towns and at the larger resorts, allowing you to withdraw cash in either US dollars or Eastern Caribbean dollars.

When it comes to currency exchange, it is recommended to carry some US dollars or Eastern Caribbean dollars with you when arriving in Nevis. You can exchange your currency at the airport upon arrival or at local banks in the towns of Charlestown and Newcastle. It’s worthwhile to note that smaller businesses may only accept cash payments, so it’s always wise to carry some local currency with you for convenience.

Major credit cards, such as Visa and Mastercard, are widely accepted at hotels, restaurants, and larger establishments. However, it’s advisable to have some cash on hand for smaller vendors and local markets that may not accept card payments. Traveler’s checks are generally not widely accepted, so it’s best to rely on cash or card payments.

When using your credit card, be sure to inform your bank of your travel plans to avoid any potential issues with transactions being flagged as suspicious. It is also advisable to keep an eye on exchange rates and consider using a currency conversion app to get real-time information on the latest rates.

Tipping is customary in Nevis and is appreciated for good service. It is typical to leave a 10-15% tip at restaurants and for taxi drivers. Some hotels and restaurants may include a service charge, so be sure to check your bill before deciding on an appropriate tip amount.

Overall, it’s essential to have a combination of cash and cards when visiting Nevis. By being prepared with the right currency, you can easily enjoy the local attractions, indulge in delicious dining experiences, and make the most of your trip to this Caribbean paradise.

Transportation

Getting around Nevis is a breeze thanks to its convenient transportation options. Despite being a small island, Nevis offers various modes of transportation to suit different preferences and budgets.

One of the most popular ways to explore Nevis is by renting a car. Renting a car gives you the flexibility to navigate the island at your own pace and explore its hidden gems. Several car rental companies can be found at the airport and in major towns. It’s worth noting that driving is on the left-hand side of the road in Nevis, as the island follows the British driving system.

For a more eco-friendly and adventurous option, consider renting a bicycle. Nevis is a relatively small island with numerous cycling-friendly roads, making it a great way to appreciate the island’s scenic beauty and explore at a leisurely pace. Bicycles can be rented from local rental shops or through your accommodation.

Taxis are another popular mode of transportation in Nevis. You can find them at the airport, ferry terminal, and major tourist areas. Taxis operate on fixed rates for specific locations, but be sure to confirm the price before starting your journey. It’s a convenient option for getting around, especially if you prefer not to drive or navigate unfamiliar roads.

If you’re staying at a resort or hotel, they often provide shuttle services to popular attractions and nearby towns. This is a convenient and cost-effective option for getting around, as it eliminates the need for navigating unfamiliar roads or finding parking. It’s always a good idea to check with your accommodation about shuttle service availability and schedules.

For shorter distances, public buses, known as “mini buses,” are available. These buses operate along specific routes and can be flagged down at designated stops. It’s a more affordable option for getting around, but be aware that they may not run on a strict timetable and can get crowded during peak hours.

Finally, walking is a great way to explore smaller towns and local neighborhoods. Nevis is a safe and pedestrian-friendly island, and you’ll find charming streets lined with historic buildings and local shops. Just remember to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen, especially during the warmer months.

With its range of transportation options, getting around Nevis is convenient and straightforward. Whether you choose to rent a car, hop on a bike, or rely on taxis or shuttles, you’ll have the freedom to discover the beauty and charm of this Caribbean island at your own pace.

Accommodation Options

Nevis offers a range of accommodation options to suit every traveler’s needs, from luxurious resorts to charming guesthouses and boutique hotels. Whether you’re looking for a beachfront retreat or an intimate hideaway nestled in lush greenery, Nevis has something for everyone.

One of the most popular choices for accommodation in Nevis is the luxury resorts. These world-class properties offer top-notch amenities, stunning views, and impeccable service. Many of these resorts are situated along the island’s pristine beaches, giving guests direct access to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. These resorts often feature spacious rooms or private villas, on-site spas, multiple dining options, and a range of recreational activities to keep guests entertained.

If you prefer a more intimate and personalized experience, consider staying at one of Nevis’ charming guesthouses or boutique hotels. These smaller accommodations provide a more authentic and local ambiance, often showcasing the island’s unique culture and history. From historic plantation houses to cozy cottages and eco-lodges, these properties offer a more intimate and immersive experience, allowing guests to truly connect with Nevis’ natural beauty.

For the budget-conscious traveler, there are also affordable accommodations available in Nevis. These include guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, and small inns. While they may lack some of the luxury amenities found in larger resorts, they provide a comfortable and convenient base for exploring the island. Many of these budget accommodations are located in the main towns, offering easy access to local shops, restaurants, and attractions.

Another unique accommodation option in Nevis is the plantation inns.

Pay attention to signage and warnings, and be cautious of strong currents or undertows. Swim within designated areas and avoid swimming alone, particularly in secluded areas.

  • Keep Emergency Contacts Handy: Before your trip, make note of important emergency contact numbers, such as the local police and embassy or consulate information. It’s also a good idea to have a copy of your passport and other essential documents stored electronically or in a safe place separate from the originals.
  • Follow COVID-19 Guidelines: In light of the ongoing pandemic, it’s crucial to stay updated on the latest COVID-19 travel advisories and guidelines. Follow local health protocols, such as wearing face masks, practicing social distancing, and maintaining proper hygiene, to protect yourself and others.
  • Trust Your Instincts: Finally, trust your instincts and use common sense. If a situation feels unsafe or uncomfortable, remove yourself from it. Be cautious of sharing personal information with strangers and avoid walking alone in dimly lit areas at night.

Nevis Travel Guide – Overview/Backstory

You may remember me posting photos from Nevis on instagram while I was there at the end of April. A little backstory on this trip…I’d received a call asking if I’d like to join along on a press trip to Nevis while Cole and I were on our Eastern Caribbean cruise with Princess the month before. I was a bit hesitant at first, because it would mean traveling alone for the first time internationally, but after talking it over with Cole, we both decided it was an opportunity I couldn’t miss. I’m SO glad I went!! It was honestly the perfect destination for me to experience traveling by myself internationally on my own because it was small, safe and the people of the island were so incredibly friendly! I loved it so much and found it to be so beautiful and safe that I’m 100% set on coming back not only with Cole but with Everly too!!

The press trip was a total of four nights at the end of April and I was joined by two other travel writers, Joe from Joe’s Daily and Claire Gallam , a freelance travel writer whose work can be seen in publications such as Conde Nast Travel, Vogue and more. I absolutely LOVED getting to know these two amazing people and having such a small group on the press trip allowed us to really immerse ourselves in experiencing Nevis.

Getting To Nevis

When visiting the island of Nevis, you’ll usually fly into the St Kitts airport first . It was a small airport, so getting through security took no time at all. From there, you’ll take a 30-40 minute taxi across St. Kitts to Reggae Beach, where you’ll board a water taxi that will get you to Nevis in just six minutes. When I was writing this, I actually originally wrote that the drive from the St Kitts airport to your water taxi was only 15-20 minutes and realized I was wrong when I verified it. That’s because the drive from the airport to Reggae Beach is SO incredibly beautiful. You’ll be driving across the really narrow part of St Kitts, where you can see incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other as you wind through mountains and valleys of beautifully lush tropical foliage. The first photo above is one I took from the taxi ride.

After we arrived at Reggae Beach, we boarded our water taxi , where we were each given a Carib beer as we enjoyed beautiful views of Nevis Peak, the dormant volcano on the island, become closer and closer as we approached. The water taxi only took six minutes, and in a flash we were welcomed to the beautiful island of Nevis, where a car was waiting to take us to our hotel. When all is said and done, you should have no problem getting from the St. Kitts airport to your hotel in Nevis within an hour or so.

Where To Stay

If you’ve traveled to the Caribbean then you know, the hotel you choose to stay at becomes a huge part of your travel experience. Many visitors may decide not to leave their resort at all, so choosing where you’ll stay during your time in Nevis will really shape your experience. We had a unique experience during our four-day stay because although the Nisbet Plantation is the hotel that hosted us, we were actually able to experience and see two other hotels that I absolutely loved, so I’ll be talking about all three of those options in this post.  In fact, after I began writing this post, I realized I had so many photos and so much content to write about on each of the hotels we experienced alone that I’m going to follow this up with a separate blog post focusing solely on each of the hotels. For now, I’ll do a brief overview of the three hotels I recommend and what each offers, because I believe every one offers something totally different, depending on what kind of experience you’re looking for.

four seasons nevis travel guide

1 – Four Seasons Nevis

Although we didn’t stay at the Four Seasons, we actually got to spend an entire day here, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this stunning, unique resort. Four Seasons is perfect if you’re looking for an island resort experience where you don’t ever have to leave the resort, whether for a family vacation or a honeymoon. With soft, white sand beaches speckled with bright yellow umbrellas and cabanas, multiple pools, a golf resort which is known for its green velvet monkey appearances, an incredible spa, and multiple dining options, there is so much to see and do at Four Seasons Nevis .

Our itinerary at the Four Seasons Nevis included a gold cart tour of the entire property, a beachside cabana for the day, massages at the Four Seasons Spa , sunset drinks on the pier and dinner at EsQuilina . As I said, I’ll go into full detail on my follow up Nevis resort review post, but to sum it up, Four Seasons Nevis was unlike any resort I’ve ever experienced and is definitely the place I would stay if I were to bring Cole and Everly back.

nevis island travel guide nisbet plantation hotel review rooms

2 – Nisbet Plantation Beach Club

Nisbet Plantation Beach Club was our host hotel during our stay in Nevis. This historic hotel is the Caribbean’s only plantation inn on the beach and is perfect if you’re looking to truly immerse yourself in the island experience. The vibrant yellow cottage style rooms and lush palm trees speckle the vast green lawn, leading right up to the resort’s private beach. The Main House, built in 1778, still stands at the center, where you can enjoy delicious local, gourmet meals for dinner.

Nisbet fully embraces the laid back, Caribbean lifestyle, with no televisions in the rooms and glassless windows with shutters so you can bring in the light, sounds and smells of the ocean air whenever you please. This quaint, local treasure is definitely best suited for adults. Stay tuned for more details and photos in my Nevis resort post.

3 – Golden Rock Inn

On our last evening in Nevis, we were treated to a tour and dinner at Golden Rock Inn. Before I go on trips I always do research on each of the locations on the itinerary so I can know what to pack/what to wear at each location ( because I’m nuts and like for my outfits to match the setting ). On our first itinerary, however, Golden Rock wasn’t listed, so I had absolutely no idea what to expect when we arrived at this hotel. Boy was I in for a surprise!! I instantly fell in LOVE with this insanely gorgeous boutique resort. Located in the lush green slopes leading up to Nevis Peak, this resort boasts more than a 100 acres of lush gardens, restored by artists Helen and Brice Marden. If you’re looking for a truly beautiful, unique and quant experience in Nevis, Golden Rock Inn should absolutely be the place that you stay. With just 11 guest rooms ( each its own unique house/unit ), a stunning fresh water pool, gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea, and an amazing restaurant, all surrounded by acres of the most breathtaking gardens and wildlife, this is truly a magical, tropical oasis. Although Four Seasons would be the place I’d stay for a family trip, I’m also dying to go back with just Cole so we can stay at Golden Rock Inn. More on that property coming in my Nevis Resort post.

nevis west indies travel guide

As I was writing this post, I realized many of our experiences involved the properties that we were visiting, which is why I’ll be expanding on those in my Nevis resort guide blog post. Much of what you do in Nevis will depend on the hotel you decide to stay at, but there are still some experiences in Nevis that you should work into your itinerary no matter where you decided to stay. Read on to see the things we did during on time in Nevis ( aside from the hotel-related activitie s) and click here to see more activities Nevis has to offer.

funky monkey tours nevis

1 – Funky Monkey Tours

The Funky Monkey Tour was the first thing we did during our first full day on the island, and it was the perfect way to kick off the trip. We did the 3 1/2 hour 4×4 tour and were able to see so much of the island! From the beautiful beaches of Nevis to the winding roads up to Nevis Peak, we got a full tour of the island, stopping at many historic and iconic landmarks along the way, as well as lots of wildlife, including the green vervet monkeys ( I tried to get a photo but I didn’t y’all, sorry! ). We got to see the oldest building in the entire Caribbean The tour also included beers and other refreshments during the entire tour. It’s definitely a must-do if you decide to venture from your hotel and explore the island ( which I definitely recommend!! )

2 – Charlestown Historic Walking Tour

We also did a walking tour of the capital of Nevis, Charlestown. To be honest, I wouldn’t recommend this tour to anyone with children – there were many times when we were walking along very narrow sidewalks and busy streets with cars that made me a bit nervous. For our purposes,  however, it was fine and was a great way to see and explore the true local side of Nevis (although the entire island feels very local!) A fun fact about Nevis if you didn’t know, it was the birthplace of f=one of the US founding fathers (and also the inspiration behind a very well-known musical), Alexander Hamilton. We got to stop at his home, now preserved as a museum for the public, during this walking tour which was really cool. As much as I loved seeing the local stores, businesses and shops, my favorite part of this tour was getting to see the Nevisians interact with one another. As we walked through the streets with both our tour guide and our representative form the Nevis Tourism Authority, Yvette,, everyone knew each other by name and made a point to wave, smile and sometimes even stop for a handshake or hug to say hello. It was SO neat and inspiring to see the love that the Nevisians have for one another.

3 – Water & Adventurous Activities

Not gonna lie, I was pretty disappointed that our itinerary didn’t include any truly adventurous activities, because there is a wealth of adventure awaiting in Nevis. All three of us agreed that we would have loved to do an activity such as climbing Nevis Peak, but we were especially bummed that we didn’t have any activities on the water planned ( don’t worry – we talked to the tourism board about this so hopefully that will change going forward! ). Regardless, if you’re planning a trip to Nevis, you should absolutely incorporate some adventure into your time there. As you can see from the above photos, the water surrounding Nevis is absolutely stunning, and you can do things such as charter fishing boats, snorkel and scuba dive and kayak. Click here for a full list of adventurous activities in Nevis.

Where To Eat

When it comes to dining in Nevis , you simply can’t go wrong. As I mentioned, there are no fast food restaurants or chains in Nevis, so you know you’re eating local authentic food when you eat here. We got to experience meals both at the hotel and resort locations we toured and some local treasures too. Read on for my two favorites.

sunshines nevis restaurants

1 – Sunshine’s Beach Bar and Grill

 If you’re looking for a party atmosphere, delicious drinks and local flavor, Sunshine’s is a can’t-miss spot in Nevis. Located off Pinney’s Beach, this spot is known for local owner Sunshine’s drink, the Killer Bee rum punch, which we got to try ( and it was delicious! ) and we even got to meet Sunshine himself! Sunshine’s has a casual, relaxed vibe and its a great way to experience some local flare and flavor of Nevis. I ordered the fish sandwich, which was incredibly fresh and delicious, but the jerk chicken is suppose to be amazing!

nevis island travel guide yachtsman grill

2 – Yachtsman Grill

The seafood pizza I ordered at Yachtsman Grill in Nevis ( pictured above ) might be one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Yachtsman Grill is also a beachside restaurant with an open patio concept, amazing, local seafood options, pizza and a full bar with wine, beer and drinks. We happened to eat at the Yachtsman Grill on a night when they had live local music, and it was incredible!! The band played all kinds of popular hits, old and new, all with a Caribbean flair. You can see videos of some of his performances here.

Nevis is truly a treasure in the Caribbean that’s not to be missed, and if you’re planning a trip to the Caribbean soon, it should absolutely top your list of destinations. There is so much natural beauty, rich history, delicious food and the local people are incredibly kind. What more could you ask for?? I can’t wait to go back and experience again with Cole and hopefully Everly too! Stay tuned for my full Nevis resort review coming later this week on the blog.

Yes it is amazing. But but but you missed the BEST that Nevis has to offer— Montpelier Plantation Inn! Their 60’ pool and private beach are gorgeous. The rooms are lovely and spacious. And the food is overwhelming. Their breakfast, included in the reservation, is worth the trip. The service is warm and excellent. I’m truly sorry you missed this place!

An insider's guide to Nevis, one of the Caribbean's glitziest island paradises

By Rob Crossan

An insider's guide to Nevis one of the Caribbean's glitziest island paradises

This is an island whose motto is ‘rush slowly’. Only 36 square miles in size, this is the very definition of that fantasy island you thought you’d missed by 40 years thanks to cruise ships, resort hotels and charter flights.

Just 12,000 Nevisians live on this onion-shaped island, lightly sprinkled with pink and turquoise-coloured cottages, verdant orchards and home-style restaurants where donkeys and sheep graze freely and the loudest noise is likely to be from a humming tree frog or maybe a thump of a mango falling from an orchard tree onto the soft soil.

There’s just one resort hotel, no cruise ships , no international flights and, if you plan on visiting the island properly, no need for a schedule or to think beyond where your next rum punch and fish roti is coming from. Here’s our complete guide to the best of the island.

The best hotels in Nevis

Four Seasons Nevis

Four Seasons Nevis

Your feet are bathed in coconut milk before the Signature massage treatment in the spa . The chef can lay on immense platters of sushi in the Dune restaurant. Your morning can begin with a sound bath session on the pier and, if your wallet can stretch to it, you can hire one of the private villas that cost upwards of £25,000 a night in high season. This is one of the Four Seasons' oldest resorts, but it has aged remarkably well. The Nevis Peak view rooms are the most affordable (though still pricey), but the attention to detail in everything from the softness of the bath robes to the freshness of the ackee and johnny cakes served at breakfast make this an undeniably tempting way to splurge.

Golden Rock Inn Nevis

Golden Rock Inn

An al fresco candlelit dinner amid the ponds and overflowing greenery that half engulfs this former sugar plantation, dating back to 1801, is one of the most romantic experiences on Nevis. The freshly grilled mahi-mahi or snapper is reason alone to visit, but the six cottages with verandas mean staying the night feels all but essential too. Though you might need help finding them in the dark; as they’re scattered widely over the estate and can only be found after making a few wrong turns down the narrow garden paths lined with a fiesta of palms, ferns and bromeliads.

Montpellier

Housed on a 60-acre site that was formerly a sugar mill on the lower slopes of Nevis Peak, there are just ten bungalows to this bucolic retreat alongside a suite and the Tamarind Villa which comes with its own sea-facing swimming pool . There’s no television in the rooms, and you wouldn’t want one anyway. Instead, enjoy the hotel’s emphasis on privacy and be sure to find the spot in the garden where Horatio Nelson of all people tied the knot with his wife Fanny.

Things to do in Nevis

Sailboat on the sea between St. Kitt's and Nevis

Climb Nevis Peak

Abruptly sprouting out of the centre of Nevis at a whacking 3,232 feet, Nevis Peak is technically an active volcano though nary a peep has been heard out of it for at least 100,000 years. Climbing looks like a challenge – and is even harder than it looks. Be prepared for at least five hours of hauling yourself up ropes tethered to tree trunks and having the view from the summit obscured by cloud mist should you embark on the trek. If you don’t fancy dealing with the mud that your clothes will be smothered with by the end of the hike , restrict yourself to some more demure strolling around the lower peaks where you’ll be surrounded by fern trees, orchids and the odd, scampering green vervet monkey.

Alexander Hamilton birthplace Nevis

Explore the early life of Alexander Hamilton

Right on the seafront in the bijou capital of Charlestown, the two cottages that make up the National Museum and Alexander Hamilton Birthplace Museum won’t take more than 20 minutes to explore in full. But the latter in particular is a fascinating insight into the life of the man whose face adorns the ten-dollar bill. There are decorative plates, portraits and candleholders vouchsafed by Hamilton’s great-great grandson and a life-size statue of the great man on the shaded lawn outside.

Nevis Botanical Garden Nevis St. Kitts and Nevis Leeward Islands West Indies Caribbean Central America

Visit the Botanical Gardens

Locals used to complain about the noise coming from the villa located in the centre of the delightful Botanical Gardens . At one time, it belonged to Oswald Mosley’s son Tim who would blast out operas from his record player every Sunday. Now, the seven-acre site contains a range of Buddhist sculptures from the collection of owner Christi Douglas and her late husband as well as talkative parrots, bougainvillea and unusual species like giant pineapple-shaped cycads, of which there are fewer than 50 on the planet, and the Flamboyant, the national tree of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Where to eat and drink in Nevis

Bananas Restaurant in nevis

All but buried amid the verdant foliage of the lower slopes of Nevis Peak, Bananas is a retreat in the midst of a sprawling tropical garden rich in ferns and orchids. Take a seat on the wide veranda, raised above the greenery below, at sunset for a high-end take on Nevisian classics such as pan-seared mahi-mahi with risotto cake and roasted red peppers or the island staple of ‘goat water’, in actual fact a slow-cooked, unctuous and smoky goat stew.

Address: Bananas, Nevis, St Kitts & Nevis Website: bananasnevis.com

Passion Bar and Grill

Plates don’t come any more heaving than the ones that emerge from Karen Belle’s tiny kitchen at this unprepossessing-looking shack in the village of Cox, covered with flags from neighbouring Caribbean island nations. Come at lunchtime for the kind of meal that will leave you in a hammock all afternoon; choose from grouper sandwiches as thick as a rum bottle, coconut shrimp and Creole-style pork chops.

Sunshines restaurant in nevis

It takes an extraordinary rum punch to rise above the fray in the Caribbean but Sunshine’s, an al fresco collection of red, yellow and green painted wooden shacks and barstools on Pinney’s Beach (just a five-minute walk from the Four Seasons) has achieved legendary status for its ‘Killer Bee’s.’ There’s no glitz or glamour to this locals' joint, but you simply cannot leave Nevis without sampling this lime and grenadine heavy concoction which, as all locals advise, shouldn’t be drunk in quantities of more than two glasses, such is its highly deceptive potency.

Address:  Sunshines, 592C+XRC, Vaughans, St Kitts & Nevis Website: facebook.com

How to get to Nevis

British Airways is the only airline that flies direct from London to St. Kitts – though you’ll have to say on the plane for an hour-long stop in neighbouring Antigua along the way. Return fares from £455. Nevis is a ten-minute water taxi away from St. Kitts. Book tickets and find further information at nevisisland.com .

"Serenity in the Caribbean"

Nevis tourism.

Nevis, part of the two-island country of Saint-Kitts and Nevis, is a Caribbean paradise. Its picturesque beaches, lush green hills, and vast wildlife make it the perfect destination for a tropical vacation.

The small island is located in the West Indies, a subregion of the Caribbean. Its location makes it an ideal spot for beach lovers and nature enthusiasts alike. From exploring the rainforest to snorkeling in the crystal clear waters, there are plenty of activities to keep visitors entertained. The island is known for its natural beauty, with its white sandy beaches, colorful coral reefs, and stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. It is also home to a variety of wildlife, including tropical birds, sea turtles, and iguanas. One of the key attractions of Nevis is the historic Charlestown, the capital of the island. Here visitors can explore the charming cobblestone streets, visit ancient churches, and learn about the rich culture and history of the island. Other popular tourist spots include the famous Nevis Peak, a dormant volcano, and the Oualie Beach, a stunning white sand beach perfect for swimming and sunbathing. There are also plenty of activities to keep visitors busy, such as snorkeling, diving, and kayaking. When visiting Nevis, travelers should keep in mind that the island is very laid back and peaceful. There are few big-name stores and restaurants, so it is best to bring along some snacks and drinks for the journey. Additionally, the island has high humidity and can get quite hot during the day so it is best to pack light and comfortable clothing. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local laws and customs to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
