Nevis is a beautiful and stunning volcanic island in the Caribbean. The island covers an area of just 35 square miles and has a population which comprises of 12,000 people. The total circumference of the island is 36 miles and it takes roughly an hour to drive around the whole island. Nevis is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches, lush rain forests, 18th century plantations houses and some of the most luxurious vacation rentals and resorts in the Caribbean.
Nevis is located to the south east of its neighbouring and slightly larger island of St Kitts. Whilst there are some direct flights to the island, getting to Nevis is generally via Robert L Bradshaw international airport in St Kitts. Once you arrive in St Kitts, you can choose to take a boat to Nevis or a small aircraft. Either way the journey is stunning and you will feel like you are on vacation as soon as you land. Our concierge department at Exceptional Villas will be happy to make both recommendations and arrangements for you.
The island divides naturally into two halves; on the south you will find lots of mountains and lush rain forests whilst the north side of the island is home to some stunning Nevis Rentals and the main beach activities.
This tiny island is truly one of the hidden gems of the Caribbean and one of our client’s favourite Caribbean Islands. Of course it is not entirely unknown as it has had its fair share of celebrities visit, but the island is still largely untouched by mass tourism. Despite this, it is glamorous and down to earth in equal measures.
One of the distinctive characteristics of Nevis is the Nevis peak. At 3232 feet high, it is one of the highest peaks in the Caribbean and consequently the top is often covered by clouds. It is possible to climb up to the top through the rain forest with a guide and once again our concierge department will be happy to arrange it for you. Alternatively you can just enjoy the peak as a beautiful backdrop whilst you relax on one of the beautiful beaches or swim in the clear turquoise seas that surround the island of Nevis.
The beaches on Nevis are truly stunning, with soft golden sands that are rarely overcrowded. Probably the most well known of these is Pinney’s Beach where many of our villas are located. For such a small island, there is also a really excellent selection of good restaurants to choose from. The Exceptional Villas team will be happy to make both recommendations and bookings for you.
The island is unique and the villas in Nevis are of an extremely high standard, yet the actual island still has the wonderful charm of a more traditional Caribbean.
Nevis is also wonderfully relaxed. One of our favourite spots on the island is the cluster of casual beach side restaurants and bars that are located at the end of Pinney’s beach just before the capital of Charlestown. This is where you can eat, dance and party with your friends and the locals of the island. Our favourite and probably the most famous of these spots is Sunshines. The owner who is called Sunshine is quite a legend on the island. He is often there and serves a “Killer B” rum cocktail which has quite a sting! The food at sunshine’s is also excellent. It is a great place to spend the day as the beach is just steps away.
