First time to Nevis

Jump to last reply

Because I'm never truly happy unless I'm dreaming about a trip to the Caribbean, I'd like to start planning now for a trip to Nevis in November. We're staying at the Mount Nevis Hotel & Beach Club. Our stay includes two dinners at the hotel's restaurant, but I'd like recommendations for other restaurants. Are the plantation inn restaurants generally the best? Do you rank one over the other? Are non-guests allowed to dine at Four Seasons or Nisbet?

We plan to rent a car for most of the time we're there. DO you have a rental company to recommend? Do you have any tips for people attempting to drive on the left side of the road for the first time? :)

What beaches should I plan to see? The hotel has a shuttle to its own beach, but since they only show one photograph of it on their website, i'm guessing that it's either small or less desirable than other beaches on the island. Also, which beaches have beach bars or snack huts for lunches during the day? Or public facilites, for that matter?

What 2-3 sites would be the best to see? I'm already leaning toward the botanical gardens. And since our hotel is on Mt. Nevis, i'm sure we'll do a little casual hiking form the hotel. Anything else?

I can't wait to go! THanks in advance for any advice you care to pass along.
