No hurry

Nevis is home to 10,000 people, most families have lived here for generations.
There is only one main road on Nevis, a 20 mile road that circles the island, going inland for a portion of the way. You will see many of the natives walking and school childen take up most of the road after school, taking their sweet time getiing home.
They say the only ones that race around the circle are those headed for the airport.

Small resorts

Nevis still has some very stately homes, they have been converted into some of the nicest small resorts and spas in the Caribbean. Most are surropunded by lovely gardens and groves of coconut palms and banana trees.

Pretty Birds

There are birds in the gardens, countryside, and rainforest. Over 60 species of birds have been seen on the island. They have three kinds of hummingbirds.
I love watching the cute little bananaquits.
There are also many geckos and mischievious monkeys.
After sunset you will hear a chorus of tree frogs

    Nice tips on this unhurried little island. I hope the monkeys didn't drop any mangos on your head.

    Interesting & informative page. Nevis is high on the list of places we want to see next. Wish we had had time when we were on St. Kitts.
