About Nevis



There’s something about this small, sombrero-shaped island that will grab you immediately. The charm and tranquility take you back to a time when things were simpler, when life was more peaceful, and when stress was just a word, not a way of life.

This 36-square-mile island lies near the top of the Lesser Antilles archipelago, about 200 miles South of Puerto Rico, and just West of Antigua. This island jewel is approximately 7 miles long and 5 miles wide, with natural vegetation that is unparalleled.

Green and serene, Nevis is truly one of the remaining unspoiled places and proudly carries the name Queen of the Caribbean. From the top of the 3,232-foot Nevis Peak to the depths of the clear waters offshore, there is a world of flora and fauna to be explored. In the hills, the comical green vervet monkeys chatter and scamper. In the sea, the whales cruise by. Stroll around and see the architecture of eras gone by churches, windmills, and refurbished Great Houses.

Our 10,000 Nevisian inhabitants are friendly and helpful, ready to make new friends and welcome back regular visitors. That’s why we say: you’re only a stranger here once!
