Itinerary

Nevis offers an abundance of opportunities to really appreciate this authentic Caribbean island year round.
Day one should be spent exploring its many exhilarating activities: take an escorted hike up Mount Nevis in the morning or explore the island by horseback, then spend the afternoon in the crystal waters: snorkelling, diving or any other water-based activities you fancy.
On day two, dive into Nevis’s rich culture; visit one of the island’s many museums to learn of the history, including Horatio Nelson’s influence on the isle, and explore the beautiful botanical gardens. It is easy to hire a car and explore independently, or there are tours.
On day three, visit the capital or head to Pinneys Beach and enjoy one of the beachfront bars.
