A rare gem in the all-to-often over traveled islands of the Caribbean, Nevis rises from crystalline waters to a cloud swept volcanic peak.
A quiet haven with untrodden beaches and unspoiled people, Nevis beckons to the more selective traveler. The spirit of the old Caribbean lingers in the historic stone buildings of old Charlestown and the liana covered mills of old abandoned sugar plantations. Take a moment out of time to share a mango with a curious but friendly local boy. Wave back to a white haired lady on the porch of her gingerbread house. Hike the mahogany rainforest in the morning and then soak your way to relaxation in the afternoon in one of our pools.
