There's something about this small, agate-shaped island that entices you. The old-world charm and absolute tranquility transports you to simpler times, when life was more serene and celebrated.

At only 36-square-miles, Nevis island lies near the top of the Lesser Antilles archipelago, approximately 190 miles south of Puerto Rico, and just west of Antigua. Nevis is truly a nature lover's paradise with its unspoiled beaches and its beautiful variety of animal and natural vegetation species.

Lush and temperate, Nevis is truly one of the remaining unspoiled and natural hideaways on planet earth and proudly carries the name, "Queen of the Caribees." From the tip of its 3,200-foot Nevis Peak to the deep blue depths of the clear waters offshore, Nevis is truly a world to enjoy. In the surrounding hills, the indigenous green Vervet Monkeys play and scamper; while offshore, whales gently glide by. Explore the stunning and rustic  architecture of times past: our lovely churches, windmills built long ago, and refurbished Great Houses.

Nevis' residents are friendly and helpful, always ready to make new friends and welcome back past visitors. Their genuine charm and hospitality radiate into the unspoken, "Welcome," "Be my guest," and "Do come again."

Nevis is special, that calm place that seduces your senses, and haunts you after you leave.

Like they say on Nevis: "You're only a stranger here once."
