On sleepy Nevis, while away days in a beach cabana enjoying hot spicy shrimp straight from the barbecue, washed down with coconut water or a rum punch. Climb Nevis Peak, take a rainforest hike or a join a monkey tour with ‘bush doctor’ Michael Herbert. Stroll through the tranquil Botanical Gardens where Admiral Nelson once walked with Fanny Nisbet, or indulge in chilled Champagne on your terrace under clear, starlit skies. Nevis is a paradise of bleached beaches, Georgian houses, tropical heat, cool breezes and weathered sugar mills just waiting to be explored by foot, bicycle or jeep; colonial Charlestown is a must, as is a round of golf at Robert Trent Jones II’s challenging course and a cheeky rum punch at Sunshine’s Beach Bar & Grill, a colourful island hangout on Pinney’s Beach.
