Nevis is one of the most unspoilt islands in the Caribbean, characterised by its lush green, vivid vegetation to its long & empty beaches, old style charm and laid back locals.

The smaller sister island of the Saint Kitts and Nevis duo, situated in the Caribbean Sea, 350km east-southeast of Puerto Rico and 80km west of Antigua. The skyline is dominated by the 3,232ft Nevis Peak and the whole island only covers 36 square miles, making it easy to explore by car.

The island is safe, friendly and welcoming and offers a more authentic glimpse into Caribbean life with little to no all-inclusive resorts and with cruise ships favouring St Kitts over Nevis; you will have the beaches all to yourself!




None required for citizens of US, EU and Commonwealth for stays up to three months
