Nevis is a sleepy Caribbean island of 12,000 residents and is sister island to the larger St. Kitts. Located in the Leeward Island chain, Nevis remains unspoiled, with no buildings higher than a palm tree. Friendly islanders and fresh breezes keep our island special.
Discover architectural ruins around the 36 square mile island dating back to the late 1600's, visit colonial Charlestown, the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton, or explore a few of Nevis's hidden beaches. Car rentals are easily arranged, or local taxi drivers are available to drive you.
Outdoor activities are diverse on this small island. From windsurfing, canoeing, snorkeling, and sailing to mountain biking, hiking, and birding—there is something for everyone. Take guided hikes through the rainforest, go up the 3,232-foot Nevis Peak, or explore our gardens. Be as adventurous or as laid back as you wish.
