Not the most famous of the Caribbean islands, but that is part of its charm. Along with endless white beaches, colonial plantation houses, thermal springs, botanical gardens, mountain views and rich rainforest.
Let’s talk beaches. You can drink cocktails at Cades Bay or Pinney’s Beach, or picnic and watch the birdlife at Fort Ashby. Or go snorkelling at Gallow’s Bay, Long Haul Bay and Herbert’s Beach. You can search for shells on Nisbet, walk on the white sand of Newcastle Beach, enjoy water sports from Oualie, indulge in private seclusion on Lovers Beach. Or drink a Killer Bee in Sunshine Beach’s cocktail bar.
The choice is vast and that’s not counting the coves and hidden inlets that abound on Nevis.
But ask Alison Jones. As one of our expert Nevis consultants she’ll also enthuse about the unspoilt ‘yesteryear’ atmosphere of the island. She’ll create a holiday that’ll include trips to the truly involving Horatio Nelson Museum, the Bath Stream and the Bath House thermal springs.
She’ll also tell you about colonial architecture, bargaining in Charlestown market and where to find the best art galleries.
Out of town, Alison recommends taking a guided nature walk, hiring mountain bikes or scooters and touring around the beautiful Botanical Gardens - or visiting an old sugar plantation like the Hamilton Estate with its colonial ruins and fantastic views of Charlestown and St Kitts.
