About Nevis

If you're looking for peace and the laid-back Caribbean charms of yesteryear, then Nevis is for you. Beautifully preserved plantation houses - many of which have been converted into the best places to stay in Nevis - in a near perfect tropical setting. Complete with idyllic white beaches and splendid hummingbirds is what makes this island a joyful place for nature lovers to relax.

Nevis's history is just as dramatic but possibly more carefully preserved than neighbour St Kitts.It boasts some even more famous citizens and relations including Horatio Nelson and US founding father Alexander Hamilton.

Nevis's beautiful beaches are relatively uncrowded and behind them are the bougainvillea and hibiscus that are home to the island's wonderful hummingbird population.

The island's peak, Mt. Nevis, makes a nice little challenge for walkers and this island certainly suits those who like to get out and do things in the great outdoors (there are plenty of cycle trails too).

What not to miss:

  • Unwind on the pristine (and quiet) white sand beaches.
  • Hike to the top of Mt. Nevis and enjoy the panoramic views from its vantage.
  • Learn of one of America's founding father's Alexander Hamilton at the Alexander Hamilton Museum.
  • Wander through the charming capital, Charlestown.

Our selection of the best places to stay in Nevis ranges from stunning former plantation properties to a boutique B&B offering fantastic value for money.
