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.

Located in Saint James Windward Parish, 0.8 miles west-northwest of Newcastle, Lover's Beach is on the North edge of Nevis. You might want whether or not you're staying very close. Lover's Beach stands out because it's one of the best spots for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Other nearby beaches on St. Kitts may provide just as many amenities as Lover's Beach, but are usually more crowded since they're located by some of the most popular tourist areas in town.

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, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.
