Nevis

Nevis is one of the most unspoilt and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. Vividly green with blue skies, clean air and long empty beaches, enjoy a pace of life that encourages you to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around you. It’s a very special place famed for its charm and the easy-going genuineness of its people. Only 36 miles around, its easy to explore and navigate or take time to truly switch off in this untouched lush green paradise.

The airport can only accommodate small planes and private jets (the international airport is on nearby sister island St Kitts). With no casinos, no giant cruise ships, no hustle and no bustle, Nevis attracts a particular type of visitor who appreciates something different, a finer quality of life.

Dotted with brightly coloured houses and with more monkeys than people, Nevis has a charm all of its own. Its quiet villages, unspoilt beaches, wonderful accommodation together with an unhurried lifestyle only add to its unique appeal.

DINING, BARS AND NIGHTLIFE

For a small island Nevis has a marvellous selection of restaurants ranging from beachfront eateries to more formal establishments.

You’ll always get a friendly welcome at the restaurants on the island. Hotel Restaurants also offer a good range including the luxurious Four Seasons Resort to the historic Montpelier Resort.
