World's Most Romantic Islands

World's Most Romantic Islands: Nevis

Peter Pierce

No. 24 Nevis

Tiny Nevis (population: about 12,000) is one of the least touristy-feeling of the Caribbean islands. The Four Seasons, which opened in 1991 and completed a renovation in 2010, remains the largest employer and one of a handful of discreet, high-end properties. There are also old plantation homes that warmly receive guests; for a look at the once-flourishing sugar trade that spawned these grandes dames, visit the Alexander Hamilton House Museum (nevis-nhcs.org) in the Georgian residence where he was born. And swing by Pinney’s Beach—backed by a jungle of vervet monkeys—to see what the buzz is about. —Christine Ciarmello
