Island Sight Seeing

It only takes one hour to drive around Nevis, if you don't stop and the goats don't get in the way.  However, if you really want to explore, you can spend weeks.  

Touring the island means stopping for a chat with locals. calling in at rum shops, looking at gardens and having long lingering lunches with looking out to sea. You can rent a vehicle and head out on your own. Or, if you would like the benefit of a little local knowledge our taxi drivers will be happy to share the island with you.
