Nevis's charm is its rusticity: there are no traffic lights, goats still amble through the streets of Charlestown, and local grocers announce whatever's in stock on a blackboard (anything from pig snouts to beer).
Few islands remain as unspoiled as Nevis, the quiet sister island of St. Kitts. While its natural attractions and activities certainly captivate—there’s great eco-hiking, windsurfing, and
deep-sea fishing to be had—lying in a hammock, strolling on Pinney’s Beach, and dining on romantic candlelit patios remain cherished pursuits. Nevis’ historic heritage, from the Caribbean's first hotel to Alexander Hamilton's childhood home, is just as pronounced, and visitors can look forward to sybaritic plantation inns that seem torn from the pages of a romance novel and scenes of overgrown sugar mills almost everywhere you look.
