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. If you're looking little seclusion and tranquility, these shores are ideal for your trip to the beach.

Located in Saint George Gingerland Parish, Indian Castle Beach is on the South East coast of Nevis. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Love beach-going but hate the crowds? Extra space is just one of the perks that comes with finding a beach that isn't lined with high-rise hotels; beaches less-traveled like Indian Castle Beach are usually more relaxing than those overrun with fellow travelers.

How to Access The 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. Once beyond all the houses, take your fist right. Stay on this until you reach a fork in the road. Taking it left a very short distance will take you to the coast. A 4X4 vehicle is recommended for the later part of this drive.
