Nevis Peak Park is actually the area surrounding the real Nevis Peak, a currently inactive volacno that is a prime spot for hiking and nature exploration. What is known as a particularly rough hike will take you along the growing incline and to the top, offering absoltuely pristine views as well as a bit of exhaustion.

The park is mainly a hikers destination, but with so much nature and peace, it is a good location for a quick escape too. However, those looking to complete the hike will be faced with a long and challanging adeventure through forests, rough terrain, and some steep climbs. Luckily, for those who are a little uneasy of the mass wilderness, there are usually some guides at the park ready to show people the way (though they may charge extra).


Located in Saint George Gingerland Parish, 3.3 miles southeast of Cades Bay, Nevis Peak happily welcomes guests who are rooming in this section of Nevis. Regardless of whether or not you're staying in the vicinity, you are free to drop by to enjoy a great time. It's 2.4 miles northeast of Charlestown.

And, one of the most enjoyable possibilities while spending an afternoon exploring the area could be sharing a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of Nevis Peak. The Hermitage Plantation Inn Restaurant, which offers Caribbean dishes, is very close-by, making it a great option for nature preserve visitors.
