Who would have thought that a romance between British Navy Captain Horatio Nelson and Francis "Fanny" Nisbet would some day pave the way for a romantic
resort stay at Nisbet Plantation? The two were married at the island's Fig Tree Church in 1787--today, couples can say "I do" in the peaceful setting of
the resort's grass-lined Avenue of the Palms or along the golden sands of its private beach. Interestingly, Nisbet is the Caribbean's only
historic plantation inn located along a coveted stretch of beach, rather than in the foothills, so you'll have easy access to hammocks on the sand.
In this lush bit of island paradise, take time to breathe in the salt air from the covered patio of Coconuts, the resort's casual beach restaurant, or dine
with the sand between your toes at Sea Breeze, delivering fresh Nevisian cuisine and the rhythmic sounds of a steel pan band. However, to celebrate a true
evening out, nothing will do but to stroll over to Nisbet Plantation's Great House for a gourmet three-course meal served by candlelight on the open-air
Families are heartily welcome at Nisbet, making this a perfect multi-generational destination. Just 36 cottage-style rooms and suites are scattered across 20
tropical acres, allowing your family both privacy and easy access to the Great House, pool, and ocean. And there's always something to keep kids of all
ages busy, from crab races on the beach to hiking Mt. Nevis, looking for Green-Throated Carib Hummingbirds in the resort gardens, horseback riding on
Pinney's Beach, or taking a catamaran snorkel trip to nearby St. Kitts.
