I f you haven’t yet visited Nevis, you’re missing something. Authentic, laid back luxury is what this tiny Caribbean island is all about, and it’s quickly becoming a hot spot among North American travelers, for good reason. In fact, the island was touted as one of the “18 Places to Visit in 2018” by CNN. Nevis is very much the way the Caribbean used to be, with no large cruise ships or bleached white resorts dotting the pristine coastline. Here, visitors take advantage of sumptuous cuisine, boutique resorts, and the warm and welcoming Nevisian people. Part of the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis, the island is located in the Leeward Islands of the West Indies. Conical in shape with a volcanic peak at its center known as Nevis Peak, the island is ideal for both beach and tropical rainforest activities. Nevis is rich with culture and history and is the birthplace of US Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton. Fans of the hit Broadway show have made their way to the island’s Hamilton Museum, visited his childhood home and the remnants of his family’s sugar estate. The island has much to offer in terms of festivals and events, with everything from a Cross Channel Swim to St. Kitts, a Marathon and Triathlon, and the popular Nevis Mango & Food Festival that will take place July 5 – 8, 2018. The Mango Festival is hosted by Food Network celebrity chefs Judy Joo, Seamus Mullen, as well as Michael Harrison from Barbados, and guests are treated to cooking classes, demonstrations, and other events highlighting the 44 varieties of mango found on Nevis, as well as the talents of local chefs. Accommodations on the island are unique and varied. The Four Seasons Resort Nevis is the largest on the island by far, with


400 rooms and suites plus stunning villas that are ideal for family vacations and offer every imaginable amenity. The island also features plantation resorts such as Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, Montpelier Plantation & Beach – a Relais & Chateaux property – and Hermitage Plantation Inn, each with its own distinct charm. Air transportation is easily available with connections from Puerto Rico and St. Maarten, as well as direct flights from New York, North Carolina, Miami and Atlanta into St. Kitts.
