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.

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will find a large selection of beaches to enjoy on the island. Regardless of whether you're looking forward to people watching, or you prefer a more secluded spot, you can find a beach that fits your preferences. You can click on the beach names for more information concerning that 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 alternative worth considering is Newcastle Beach. The soft carmel-colored sands of New Castle beach are shaded by lush green coconut trees. This beautiful beach is located at the northernmost tip of the island, next to the Nevis's airport.

Indian Castle Beach: Most people are drawn to Indian Castle Beach because of its excellent opportunities for surfing. The shores of Indian Castle Beach remain generally uninhabited, except for a few friendly goats, who may just invite themselves to your beach picnic.
