Rum Punch and Lobster!Oualie Beach           ..about Nevis

If you like luxurious accomodation, with peaceful and charming islanders and no security problems or trinket sellers hassling you on the beach then Nevis is for you!
Nevis seems to be caught in a time warp and is one of the very few caribbean islands that is not overdeveloped.  The island is  about  36 sq.miles, situated  around an extinct volcano which is surrounded by lush tropical forest and with beautiful beaches on the caribbean coast. You can drive or cycle around Nevis on the 21mile circular road.  It's neighbouring island St Kitts is just 3 miles away,and is connected to us by a car ferry ,( about US60 for a day trip with car return .. so you can look around St.Kitts in comfort, ) ...and on a clear day from the east of Nevis you can see Monserrat and even Antigua in the distance. It is a peaceful and quiet island, with good restaurants, and  a great place to relax. Nevis attracts adventurous travellers who enjoy a peaceful, relaxing vacation in the warm Caribbean sea and sun.
There  are several super- luxury hotels all of which have bars and restaurants that you can use, there is a Robert Trent Golf course at the Four Seasons Hotel and also tennis courts  and beauty massage.  You can visit the Nisbet Plantation Hotel for evening  cocktails and sit in the lounge and listen  to live soft music,  you can also reserve a place for Dinner. The Hermitage Plantation is also well worth visiting, and also the Montpelier Plantation  Hotel." Coconut Grove" and "Banana's "restaurants are great for food.
The Oualie Beach Hotel  is about 10 minutes walk away where our are guests are welcome to use the bar and restaurant, and use for free all the beach facilities of this pretty collection of Gingerbread Cottages situated on a calm shallow sandy bay, with very safe swimming for children. They also have "Jump Ups!" with good bands to dance to, usually on friday nights. Snorkeling, Scuba Diving Boats,( qualified teaching PADI  dive school)  and hire of catamarans /canoes etc,  also here. You can drive around to the other side of the island and have a great Lobster lunch at the Golden Rock Hotel, and you will be very welcome to spend the afternoon and use the swimming pool, lastly only 10 mins drive away is the Mount Nevis Hotel  - great for lunch around the pool and they will welcome you for a swim if you use the restaurant.

 Nevis is a really friendy island, the people are really kind and welcome visitors from every country.   Nevis has one of the highest  literacy rates in the Caribbean and the islanders are religious, law abiding and helpful. No huge fences around houses to keep out burgulars, crime is very low in  Nevis, life is pleasant and gentle.
So, how can you get to Nevis?
Nevis does not have an airport big enough for todays huge jets... this is what keeps the island so special,  you will fly into Nevis  from one of the larger nearby islands.  A new route started on American Airlines from New York JFK direct to nearby St. Kitts, and they also fly Miami to St. Kitts. British Airways now fly direct from Gatwick to St.Kitts every saturday, Nevis is then a 30min ride on the ferry.
From Europe you can also fly daily to Antigua on BA, BMI , Virgin etc,  and then take a 25 min flight on LIAT to Nevis. If you have a group of 4-6 you can charter your own plane from Antigua to Nevis. From the UK you can also fly Heathrow to Paris onto St Martin on Air France, and then fly to Nevis on Winnair ( about 40mins flight.), or  Heathrow -Amsterdam - St Maarten on KLM.  KLM of course flies daily from Amsterdam to the caribbean.  From America you can also fly to Antigua and then across to Nevis, or from  Miami, then to  Peurto Rico and then direct to Nevis on American Eagle. There are now daily JetBlue flights from Miami and JFK direct to St.Maarten ,  and then you take Winnair to Nevis .  You can also arrive via St. Maarten.on several other airlines.  It all sounds a bit complicated but usually it is just one change of airline/flight. You will not regret the little extra trouble.
