Hotels: Peak season in Nevis spans from December to April, but there is still plenty to do in the off season. Some of the island’s resorts, villas, and B&B’s offer fantastic deals from August through November, and there is no better time to get a feel for true island living.
Activities: Those interested in nature will find an array of hikes from easy rainforest walks to challenging four star hikes to the summit of Mt. Nevis. Guides can not only help you manage the terrain, but also know where to see local fauna, such as “green” Vervet monkeys as well as forest and woodland birds. For those who prefer the putting green to the forest, golfers can see these monkeys as well as spectacular views at the Robert Trent Jones II Golf Course at the Four Seasons.
Beaches: Unspoiled beaches provide a haven to those looking for a relaxing day by the ocean. Cades Bay Beach is a good place to walk on long stretches of sand, and Pinney’s Beach is just a short stroll from beach bars and quiet lagoons. Meanwhile, snorkeling, diving, kayaking and windsurfing offer thrills and excitement for those interested in an action packed day.
Historical Sites: Featuring the oldest hotel in the Caribbean, as well as Alexander Hamilton’s birthplace, Nevis offers a window into the Caribbean’s past. Take a carriage ride through historical plantations, or visit the ruins of Cottle Church, which is quickly becoming a popular wedding destination. Built in 1778, Bath Hotel was the first built in the Caribbean. While the hotel is no longer operational, the hot springs that were once thought to possess healing powers are now free and open to the public. The nearby Museum of Nevis History is a great place to learn about Alexander Hamilton, as well as the history of the island.
Events: In October, the Annual Nevis Sport Fishing Tournament brings hundreds of anglers from neighboring islands, and the Booby Island Regatta draws many visitors in May.
