Nevis is an oasis of charm and tranquility blessed by nature and overflowing warmth and hospitality.
You will only be a stranger here by once, for the gracious locals of this island paradise will welcome you as one of their own.
Nevis is a welcoming destination for people who enjoy raw nature, as well as those a bit more gentrified. There’s nothing like an afternoon of total relaxation, a visit to the stables, or a trip into delightful Charlestown to be charmed by its colonial-era architecture.
One of the last remaining unspoiled places on earth, Nevis is a paradise for sun worshippers and nature lovers alike. While some hidden treasures are accessible on your own, island officials recommend that a tour guide accompanies you on certain trails.
Rich in crafts and traditions that fuse Amerindian and Afro-Caribbean cultures, Nevis is a living Museum of days gone by. There’s Lord Nelson’s lookout point, churches dating back centuries, and the very home in which Alexander Hamilton was born.
Make your way through what remains of historic churches and marvelous old sugar plantations, explore your archaeological instincts among the ruins of plantation windmills, ancient Amerindian sites, - even a newly discovered slave village.
Be it man-made or work of nature, Nevis abounds with beauty.
From faithfully restored estates to the Caribbean’s foremost Botanical Garden, you will be awestruck. The mysterious Rainforest Conservatory alone will be worth the trip, with thousands of orchid blossoms and splashing dolphin fountains leading the way.
Dominating the center of the island is Mount Nevis, the dormant volcano perpetually cloaked in mist, named by Columbus when he first discovered it in 1493. Before attempting the climb, make your way around the island by scooter, mountain bike or a family-sized sedan.
An island of rainforests, reefs, and historic ruins, Nevis has something for everyone, and accommodations that range from historic plantation inns to mountainside villas, and even an award-winning, luxury five-star resort.
The beautiful tropical weather, plus cool breezes, make land sports a daily pleasure. There’s biking, tennis, cricket, and golf at one of the finest courses in the Caribbean, designed by Robert Trent Jones. Whatever your pleasure, follow it up with a luxurious open-air massage.
On or under the sea, visitors to Nevis can enjoy any number of activities in the warm Caribbean waters. There is excellent snorkeling just offshore and scuba diving around wrecks and natural reefs.
Everything about this tropical island will inspire and charm you. An enchanting stroll through the Nevision Village or a local cultural dance demonstration will transport you to another era. A day-long climb to the top of Nevis Peak will be a triumph of the soul.
Just as there is a choice of activities to suit every taste, the superb dining offered throughout our island is certain to please even the most discerning palate. At the end of every meal, as at the end of every day, there is simply no place on earth like the island of Nevis.
Visitors have been discovering Nevis since 1493. Now it is time for you to come and discover the green and serene natural beauty of the island known, for hundreds of miles around, as the “Queen of the Caribees.”
