Capital - Charlestown

The birthplace of Alexander Hamilton and the island where Admiral Nelson met and married Fanny Nisbet, Nevis is more than your usual Caribbean beach destination. Part of the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis, Nevis remains largely off the beaten track with a distinctly boutique vibe. The island is dominated by the 3000ft Nevis Peak and has it all; beaches, culture, beautifully lush scenery, charming plantation hotels, fabulous restaurants and wonderfully friendly people. No wonder the rich and famous like to visit, and why some have made it their home.

There are twice weekly flights to St Kitts with British Airways (10 hrs 15 mins via Antigua) on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and then it’s a short car journey and a 10-minute water taxi transfer over to Nevis.
Nevis is also accessible via local airlines from other Caribbean islands, making it an ideal multi-centre Caribbean destination.

Nevis is an exceptional year-round destination. Temperatures average a balmy 81ºF (27ºC) during the winter months and increase to 86 ºF (30 ºC) in the summer. The driest months are February to June. August to October, hurricane season, are the quietest months. Not to be missed is the Nevis Mango and Food Festival which is held in early July.


Why Nevis?

“Nevis is just one of the most beautiful and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. Every time I visit, I feel like I’m going home.” – Karen Williams, co-founder of the Caribbeanist.

The Caribbeanist’s Nevis Top 5

1. Spend the day lazing on beautiful Pinney’s Beach, which is not complete without a visit to Sunshine’s Beach Bar. Sunshine’s is famous for its potent Killer Bee rum punch, and celebrity visitors whose photographs decorate the walls.

2. Take a hike through the rain forest; if your stamina permits, make it all the way to Nevis Peak’s summit to admire the fantastic views. Expert guides, who’ll point out all the beautiful flora and fauna, are available.

3. Soak up the colonial charm of Charlestown which has several lovely examples of Georgian architecture. A must-see is the Museum of Nevis History, housed in a two-story Georgian building – the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton.

4. Nevis has several beautiful historic hotels that have been converted from old plantation houses. A tour of the plantation hotels is a delightful way to spend an afternoon, whether you stay for lunch at one of their fabulous restaurants or just sample a cocktail or two.

5. Lunch at Golden Rock Inn, situated on 100 acres of verdant splendour on the slopes of Nevis Peak, where you can eat al-fresco surrounded by glorious tropical gardens and sample the best lobster sandwich on the island.
