Entirely unspoiled and wholly natural, the island is Nevis is the perfect Caribbean “deserted island” retreat.  Yes, there is one small town with historic significance and plenty of landmarks to glimpse, but for the most part nature abounds, the beaches are stunning, and the vibe is completely and utterly laid back.


Oualie Beach

You will discover a large number of beaches to consider on the island. Regardless of whether you enjoy people watching, or you enjoy relaxing in a secluded area, you can find a beach that fits your preferences. You can click on the name of the beach for detailed information about that particular location.

A beach scene where you can go snorkeling is Oualie Beach. You can get here directly from St. Kitts. A water taxi will take you right up to the shore of this cove on Nevis's northwestern coast.

Another option to consider is Nisbet Beach. Guarded by scattered palms and offering crystal clear water, Nisbet Beach is without doubt a tropical beach. To top it off, the mountains dotting the horizon solidify the beach as a marvelously beautiful place.

Pinney's Beach: Located in between Charlestown and Nelson's Spring on the west coast of Nevis, you can get here by by car or by boat. If in the car, take Pinney's Rd north from Charlestown and take your first left to the shore where you'll find Chevy's Calypso Bar & Grill.
