Quiet, tranquil, and charming, the small island of Nevis is sparsely populated and a true escape from the busy tourist traps that exist throughout the Caribbean.  When you visit this island, it is about relaxation, reflection, and enjoying the natural surroundings – and all of the island's most popular activities seem to center around these three themes. 

When you visit Nevis, you'll quickly discover that most people spend their days outdoors.  Hiking or horseback riding, strolling through the botanical gardens, playing a round of golf, or sightseeing around the capital of Charlestown are all top ways to keep busy.  The sea is also a major draw, and booking a day of sailing, fishing, snorkeling, or scuba diving is never difficult to pull off.
