I love the vibe down at the beach bar it's relaxed and laid back I was last there in 2014 when they were putting the mosaic tiles into the tables on the beach and so helped out creating a mosaic on one of the tables!

Location & Directions

Nevis, Eastern Caribbean

Nevis in the British West Indies is the smaller and less developed island, Nevis, is just 36-square miles. Nisbet Plantation is situated in the north of the island.

When to go

Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9-hours of sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
