Paired with St. Kitts, the pocket-sized island of Nevis makes up just one-half of the nation in the Lesser Antilles. Despite its diminutive size, the island nestled in the Eastern Caribbean is brimming with a mix of colorful flora and fauna, rich local history, and all the hallmarks of a first-rate tropical beachfront destination. It’s often called “The Queen of Caribees.” Travel to Nevis to explore its namesake mountain or its white sandy coastline; to tour its historic sugar plantations or wander through Charlestown, its capital city.
