Culture and Attractions
Whether your tastes are rugged or refined, there’s something for you on Nevis. Rich history surrounds you in centuries-old churches, sugar mills and plantation homes, remnants of Nevis’ days as the wealthiest of the Islands. Today, cricket is a passion, literacy is universal, school uniforms are always crisply pressed and modern Nevisians celebrate their arts and culture in summer’s week-long Culturama.
The island's natural blessings guarantee a lifetime of adventures. Embrace the fresh air with a picnic on the beach. Ride through green foothills on horseback. Try your skills against local sport fish: barracuda, wahoo or grouper. Explore secluded beaches by kayak. Catch the tradewinds for some of the best windsurfing in the world. Take a leisurely bike ride – or set a personal best in the annual off-road triathlon. Cheer the thoroughbreds at picturesque Indian Castle Race Track. Or lie back on your terrace and count the stars.
