Arrival on Nevis in SeaDream 1

The Hot Spring in Nevis

We have arrived in Nevis aboard SeaDream 1 and will stay a few hours before we head off to go superyacht spotting in St Barts.

The island is another of our favourites and it is fun to explore beyond the small town of Charlestown to make the most of your visit!

Less commercial and laidback than its large neighbour St. Kitts, Nevis, at first glimpse, offers a stunning approach with dramatic views of the potentially active volcanic Nevis Peak some 985 metres above sea level.

There is no dock big enough for this vessel so the tender took us within a few steps of the small town centre.

Charlestown does not offer too many sightseeing or shopping opportunities but the Nevis Heritage Society has produced an easy to follow guide to a trail they have devised to take in most of the more popular island attractions.

Exploring the island is easy. Get a taxi because every driver is an island guide! Not only is the experience enjoyable and exciting but by doing so, you will also help the local population earn a living.

On this occasion however we just walked along the road for 10 minutes to the baths were it is possible to sit and soak in naturally hot water that bubbles up from the earths crust and is said to have wonderful healing opportunities

The Four Seasons Resort at Pinney’s Beach offers incredible golf options as well as a beautiful beach and dining facilities.

Another option for lunch could be to drive out to Coconut Grove (less than ten minutes from Charlestown by taxi). Make sure to ask Gary, the owner, to show you his extensive wine and champagne cellar!

Of course there is also Sunshine’s Beach Bar & Grill, home of the famous “Killer Bee” Caribbean rum drink.

Don’t drink too many! They have that name for a reason!
