Nevis is another of those idyllic hideway Caribbean islands that has not been exploited by the modern commercial world. It is a mere 36 square miles and those who have taken the trouble to discover it will be captivated by its beauty and its people.
Nevis Peak with its cotton wool covering of soft fluffy cloud once attracted the - great explorer Christopher Columbus, who called it 'Nuestra Senora de las Nievas' - Our Lady of the Snows. Gradually over the years the name shortened to Nevis, a lush botanical gem on the Caribbean map.
Part of the beauty of Nevis is its close proximity to its sister island St Kitts, just two miles on the map but looking much closer with the naked eye. Constantly affected by the Tradewinds, Nevis has a beautiful sunny climate all year round and although it gets rain, it tends to come in short bursts from August to February.
The dominant geographical feature is the 3,232 feet high Nevis Peak, surrounded by tropical forests that stretch downward to the mangroves and coconut plantations that almost slide into the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
