Nevis - by Patrick Bennet

NevisTravel 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 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.
