The beaches of Nevis are without question a beautiful sight to behold.  Some of the most popular beaches are so because resorts offer easy access to them, but there are many more beaches on the island that are lesser-known and therefore less crowded and more pristine.  For a truly unique experience, make sure to take time to visit one of the island's black sand beaches which were created by volcanic rock.

Pick Your Ideal Beach

There are an abundance of beaches to enjoy on the island. Whether you prefer being around other people, or you enjoy relaxing in a secluded area, you're likely to find what you want. You can click on individual beach names to get additional information concerning that part of the coast.

Oualie Beach

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.

Another location to consider is Newcastle Beach. The beach is located right on the western end of the Vance W Amory International Airport. Follow the road around the landing strip where you'll find a parking area.

Indian Castle Beach: On the southern part of Nevis, from Taylor's Pleasure, head southeast on the road beginning at Gingerland Public Cemetery in between Gingerland Methodist Church and the Brookes gas station. Follow this south through a residential area.
