Lover's Beach

It's an odd day when Lover's Beach is crowded. This easily accessible, but hidden beach is a destination for those looking to take in the natural beauty of Nevis. A long coast, crystal water, and the surrounding image of mountains and forests make Lover's Beach an idealistic spot.

Positioned on the northwestern part of Saint James Windward Parish, 0.8 miles west-northwest of Newcastle, Lover's Beach is on the North coast of Nevis. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying in the vicinity. If you plan to sunbathe or take a nap on a fairly secluded beach, you might really enjoy an afternoon at Lover's Beach.

How to Access The Beach
Lover's Beach is located right off the main northern road, and is just west of Vance W. Armory Airport. It is hidden behind a dense set of trees, and if you make it to Oualie Beach, you have gone too far. Once you pass the airport road heading west, be on the lookout for a right turn through the trees.

Amenities and Ambiance

This laid back beach has options for anyone looking for a peaceful time. The long coast offers a nice walk to visitors, the gently rolling waves are great for waders, and the warm sand is great for those laying out and watching the ferries.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.
