Family Travel in Nevis

Jump to last reply

Other than the Four Seasons, what are the options for an active family on Nevis? We would prefer a smaller resort, but want a place where kids are welcome and appreciated. How is the snorkeling on Nevis? How important is it to rent a car to get around?

    A car to island explore is essential. There are some nice beaches but the gin-colored, crystal clear waters of the Bahamian archipelago is nonexistant. I would recommend getting a local driver's license for $20 and most likely your car insurance co. in the U.S. will cover you for liability and collision; if they don't, get a new one. You must drive on the left side of the road. Check out the Golden Rock Inn on the beginning mountain trails into the rain forest. You will see the African Green Monkeys every day there, and also Pam's pet parrot will entertain your kids, if they have enough peanuts in their pockets. The Qualie Baeach Hotel is also nice, on a beautiful beach. Go horseback riding along the beach and into the rain forest with Nevis Equestrian Centre and Pet Station. Also, "Best Kept" secret; there is a marine biologist lady who, I think, has her operation run out of Qualie Beach (If I'm wrong, someone please correct me). I talked to her about the snorkeling trips, which are geared to kids, but surprisingly, parents enjoy it just as much. She tours her place and kids get "hands-on" touching to many ocean creatures in her aquariums, and listen to a lecture as the tour progresses. Then, everyone goes snorkeling in the ocean reefs. Surprisingly, the kids Identify more creatures than they ordinarily would. That would be a great experience for you and your kids. If know one gives out her name, you won't have difficulty finding her name once on Nevis...everybody knows everybody!! Robert
