Only have a few hours spare to visit the island? No problem!
Visiting St. Kitts by cruise and wondering if you have sufficient time to see the island of Nevis? Not an issue.

There is more than adequate time, with lots things to do for our short stop visitors. The local ferries leave both islands almost every thirty minutes and the journey over takes thirty minutes with most ferries.

Once on the island, if your interest is just walking around historic Charlestown, our capital, feel free to stop at the Nevis Tourism Authority. Our warm, hospitable and knowledgeable staff are always ready to instruct you as to how to navigate the streets of Charlestown for the ultimate Historic Charlestown experience. The kind staff will also enlighten and direct you to all the hidden gems that our island has to offer. But just in case you may still need a physical representation to aid in your tour, we also supply Nevis Heritage Trail Maps that not only pin point all the historical sites in Charlestown but the entire island!

Visit the home of Sir Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasurer of the United States of America, who was born on Nevis. For our Jewish visitors, it’s tradition to place a stone on the grave of the ancestors at the Jewish Cemetery. Need to relax or in need of a natural therapeutic remedy? Soak away at the Bath Hot Springs while taking in the view of the first hotel ever built in the Caribbean, The Bath Hotel (1778). Nevis is blessed with geothermal energy and for centuries visitors and locals alike have enjoyed the hot springs with its therapeutic benefits.

Is your interest a tour of the island? Love sightseeing, history, culture, animals? Nevis’ full taxi Island Tour takes only three hours. And, guess what? Our taxi operators are right there to greet you as soon as you arrive on Nevis! Yes, we are a friendly people! Our taxi operators are very knowledgeable about the island, its history and culture. Be prepared not only to visit various sites, but also to be educated on the rich history behind each one. Oh, be prepared to see our donkeys and our famous green vervet monkeys at any point whilst on your tour. They truly are a sight to behold.

On a more subtle note, if your desire is just to lay and relax on the beach, Nevis is blessed with a number of great beaches to choose from. Just on the outskirts of Charlestown, you can find our famous 3 mile stretch of beach, Pinney’s Beach. Be surrounded by sand, sea, sun, food, drinks and music as Pinney’s Beach has it all. There is also Cades Bay, Oualie Beach, Lovers Beach, Herbert’s Beach and the award winning Nisbet’s Beach.

Sounds perfect doesn’t it? Well that’s simply because it is!

Nevis Naturally, Nevis the envy of the Caribbean, we have it all for you!

Nevis hotel


Whether you arrive in Nevis via plane or boat from our neighbouring island St. Kitts, transfer to your resort or home away from home while on vacation is less than a 35 minute drive away. Explore the resort property and indulge yourself in a Nevisian Rum Punch. Each restaurant and bar has their own secret ingredient used in making their signature Rum Punch.

Time to detox


Sundays are generally a lazy day on the island. Most locals traditionally go to church then family time for a day at the beach. Embrace local life and find your semi-private beach and enjoy the cool Caribbean or Atlantic Ocean breeze while sipping on a tropical drink. No beach on the island is private but the reason I said “semi-private” is that beaches on the island never feel overpopulated. Herbert’s Beach, Lovers Beach, Nisbet Plantation Beach are a few of the island’s beaches but Pinney’s Beach is the most popular beach, stretching three miles in length. Some beaches offer the advantage of beach front restaurants which affords you the opportunity to have lunch or dinner at any one of the local restaurants at the beach.

If the beach is not your desire, take time to rejuvenate yourself with a morning yoga class and then head to the spa to pamper yourself.

After breakfast, experience why Nevis is the island of many firsts. Take an island tour and learn about the island’s history, heritage and culture. By the time you are through, you would begin to feel like a local. Walk through the streets of historic Charlestown and visit the Museum of Nevis History the home of Sir Alexander Hamilton, the Jewish Cemetery and the Bath Hotel & Hot Springs-the first hotel to ever be built in the Caribbean.

If you’re a plant lover, the Botanical Gardens should be a must stop on your sightseeing adventure. The five-acre gardens contain a variety of tropical plants whose origins span the globe. There are spectacular flowering trees and shrubs including the Flamboyant or Poinciana, the national flower of St. Kitts & Nevis.

There are a variety of restaurants to choose from to have lunch. Whether it’s at Passion Bar (local cuisine), The Rocks, Banana’s Restaurant or Wilma’s Diner (who actually cooked for the Queen of England), the selections are endless. One can never find a bad meal on the island as each restaurant practice farm to table dishes.

End your night dinning under the stars at the Montpelier Plantation & Beach Barbeque with live entertainment.

Explore Nevis - hiking


Do the right of passage by climbing Nevis Peak. Booking a guide for this hike is a must. You can also opt to hike to the waterfalls or walk to Saddle Hill or “Nelson’s Lookout” - a fort which Lord Horatio Nelson used as a watch point for French and Spanish ships in the event of trouble.

Visit the Hot Springs after Nevis Peak Hike and relax in the pool or flowing stream and emerge new and refreshed.

Take a sunset horseback beach & trail ride or simply embrace paradise and slowly watch the sunset.

Sailing on Nevis


Catamaran sails & Yacht charters are an amazing way to see the island from the ocean’s point of view. All tours have a complimentary bar stuffed with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and can also provide lunch on board or stop at a restaurant on our sister island St. Kitts.

Snorkel over coral reefs or close to a sunken ship on this marine excursion. Go deep sea fishing and reel in a Blue Fin Marlin or Wahoo. Yachting around the island, Jet Ski or fly boarding, whatever the desire today is a day to be a water lover.

For dinner, eat like a local at the Hermitage Plantation Inn where they have their “Pig Roast Buffet” every Wednesday night. But don’t be turned off if you’re a vegan/vegetarian or gluten-free consumer; there are many dishes at this buffet and at various restaurants around the island to suit your preference.

A day in St. Kitts


Experience our sister island, St. Kitts. Getting between the two islands is quite easy. Local ferries leave both capitals almost every half an hour. You can also use a water taxi and in 5-7 minutes you’re there.

Explore St. Kitts with an island tour. Must see sites are the Brimstone Hill Fortress, Romney Manor & Timothy Hill. The Scenic Railway is another way of seeing St. Kitts via train.

If you want to be more adventurous in St. Kitts, you may take a zip line canopy tour or sky diving.

After your return from St. Kitts, make your last dinner in Nevis count and book a private Beach Dinner, visit your favorite restaurant or check out the West Indian Buffet at the Nisbet Plantation & Beach Club.

Nevis - take it all in


With today being your last day on the island, retreat to the beach to dip your toes one more time in the Caribbean Sea or just lounge at the pool while you are served food and drinks. Make sure you would have gotten all your souvenirs and local items that you want to take back with you.

It’s been a pleasure hosting you and there is a local saying “You’re only a stranger once in Nevis” so on your return you would be considered a friend or even greater, family!
