Nevis Peak

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).


Nevis Peak is situated in Saint George Gingerland Parish, in the general vicinity of Cades Bay; it's two and a half miles (four kilometers) to the northeast of Charlestown.

Nearby Restaurants

If you've worked up an appetite during your visit to the wildlife reserve, don't worry -- you'll discover a wide variety of food and drink providers within traveling distance. The Hermitage Plantation Inn Restaurant, which serves Caribbean meals, is also the most convenient option for visitors of this nature preserve. The eatery is a short distance off, but removed enough that you will probably want to make arrangements for having a means of transportation to travel there. The Rocks and Golden Rock Plantation are a couple other restaurant options close-by where visitors will be able to enjoy the local foods and culture of St. Kitts.

Nearby Attractions

There are at least one or two other places of interest nearby, including Boiling House Ruins Trail, which is three quarters of a mile away Saint George Gingerland Parish. You might also want to think about heading to Southern Boiling House, which is another attraction in the area.
