Talk about hidden gems!

Nevis is one of the most unspoilt and relaxing islands in the Caribbean. Vividly green with blue skies, clean air and long empty beaches, Nevis has a pace of life that encourages you to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around you.

It’s a very special place famed for its charm and the easy-going genuineness of its people.

Nevis is a small island in the Caribbean Sea that forms part of the inner arc of the Leeward Islands chain of the West Indies. Nevis and the island of Saint Kitts to the northwest form the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. The two islands are separated by a shallow two-mile (3.22 km) channel known as “The Narrows”. Nevis is conical in shape with a volcanic peak known as Nevis Peak at its centre. The island is fringed on its western and northern coastlines by sandy beaches that are composed of a mixture of white coral sand with brown and black sand which was eroded and washed down from the volcanic rocks that make up the island. The gently-sloping coastal plain (0.6 miles/1 km wide) has natural freshwater springs as well as non-potable volcanic hot springs, especially along the western coast.

ONLY 400  rooms on the entire island – making it very quaint and private and appealing to the upscale traveler. Four Seasons has about 200 rooms and the rest are made up of colonial style inns, superb villas and contemporary condos. This is a place you come to unplug and relax. 36 square miles of beauty, beaches and picturesque scenery.

The locals will tell you that the best beaches on Nevis are on the northern and western shores. But all the beaches are well-cared-for, public and free. And because they are never crowded, you might have an entire beach to yourself!

The island takes a live and let live attitude and treats everyone with respect and courtesy. Times have changed and the Caribbean is not the homophobic place it once was.

HOWEVER, Jamaica is  still the most homophobic island in the Caribbean, with harsh anti-gay laws, even though there is a large local gay population.
