Nevis: Queen of the Caribbees

By air or by sea, you won?t soon forget your first sight of Nevis. Its volcanic centerpiece, rising almost 3,300 feet above the cobalt Caribbean and usually shrouded in a swirling wreath of clouds, is particularly dramatic when backlit by sunrise or sunset—mystical and alluring.

Charlestown, its diminutive capital, is what the Caribbean was like 30 or more years ago. The charming main street is lined with old buildings of traditional character: full balconies and gingerbread trim, though many seem to need paint. The town?s red roofs contrast against the verdant fields and palm forests ascending the gentle foothills of the mountain. But Nevis has little in the way of man-made attractions, aside from plentiful and mostly informal dining.
