If you are looking for a side trip when visiting St. Kitts, then you should definitely visit Nevis. Located only 45 minutes by ferry from St. Kitts, it is a great place to visit for those who love trips that entail exploration. However, it is highly recommended that when visiting Nevis you stay on the island for a few because there is that much to see and do in the area.
Attractions in the area offer a visit scaling the heights of Nevis Peak, teeing-off at a world-class golf course, exploring underwater grottoes or just relaxing on one of the remote beaches.
Our recommendation is to begin your trip by visiting Charlestown. It will only take you about hour to explore the capital town so don’t plan on spending your whole day there. Next, those of you who love verdant natural scenery should check out the Botanical Gardens at Montpelier Estate. The Gardens are nestled at the foot of Mt. Nevis and features terraced landscaping showcasing various kinds of vibrant blooms. Walk around the sprawling grounds and discover grand fountains, lagoons and waterfalls along the way. You can catch breathtaking panorama. Don’t forget your cameras! If you are looking for something exciting to do, and are a fan of haunted houses then pay a visit to the Eden Brown Estate where the ghost of an 18th century recluse bride is said to haunt the area.Finally, the Fothergills Nevisian Heritage Village is also a must-visit especially for those who are interested in the island’s history and culture. Check out the traditional living quarters with relics dating back to the period of the Caribs and many other exhibits which help you to gain insight into the rich heritage of the Nevisian people throughout the centuries.
If you are looking for some quiet time to relax and enjoy a beach getaway then you have come to the right location. Nevis offers a for a amazing Caribbean beach getaway, with an overabundance of beaches to choose from. The most popular of them all is Pinney’s Beach which offers a golden sand and palm-fringed shore. If you love snorkeling, then visit Oualie Beach known as the perfect hang-out for snorkelers. However, if diving is more your thing, then do not miss the dramatic grottoes and canyons of Devil’s Caves.
If you are looking to go play some golf, then make time to visit Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed facility which stunningly beautiful and golfers of all skill level will surely fall in love with its magnificent vistas and challenging terrain. As a final attraction, you may also want to rise up to the challenge of Mt. Nevis and climb its peak at over 3,000 feet. But, if you are only up for a less challenging hike, then the Upper Round Road Trail is a better route to take. It will take you from Golden Rock Plantation, through plantation ruins and lush rainforest. Complete the 9-mile circuit all the way to Nisbet Plantation Beach Club if you still have the stamina for it. If you are less adventuresome and prefer half-day treks, then a scenic hike to Herbert Heights Village is the perfect alternative while in Nevis. Enjoy your vacation!
