This 5-hour small group tour is packed with upscale Island relaxation. The twin island nation of St Kitts-Nevis boasts several fine beaches, but locals know that the best of them is Pinney's Beach in Nevis - 11 miles across the sea from the capital Basseterre, and its cruise port.
The Guardian (UK) says " With mile after mile of superb white sand and a beguiling array of options for eating and drinking, Pinney's is not only recognized as one of the finest beaches in the Leeward chain of islands, it's one of best in the entire Caribbean."
Begin your tour with a comfortable 30-minute ride on a sleek power boat from the marina in the cruise port, perhaps enjoying a cold fruit juice or rum punch as you see Nevis peak grow nearer. The group size of each departure is limited to 16, to preserve the private feel of the tour.
Disembark right in the middle of the white sandy expanse of Pinney's beach where your included beach chair and shared umbrella await you. Then relax at your leisure - swim, stroll the beach, perhaps down to the Four Seasons Resort or stop in at one of the unique beach bars and restaurants to sample the fare. There's time to hire a taxi for a look at Nevis away from the beach if that's your fancy.
Your power boat returns to pick you up straight from the beach and whisk you back to the marina in the cruise port. relaxed and rejuvenated.
The boat ride portion of the tour is sometimes combined with the companion "Nevis Plantation and Beach Tour" in that case, you will also enjoy a close-up of Charlestown and a cruise past Hamilton House, the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton.
