Nevis, put simply is a paradise. This small Island, which sits as a Country alongside its larger neighbour St Kitts, has extroadinary history as well as staggering beauty.

Nelson got married to local Nevisian Frances Nesbit and was based on Nevis during the 1780's and Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding farthers of America, and its first Secretary of State to the Treasury, was born on the Island.

Sugar and cotton were the original revenue earners of the Island but both have ceased, although the history of the Sugar Plantations can still be seen in many splendid restored buildings that are now hotels and restaurants for the well-to-do visitors to the Island from around the World.

Nevis Peak dominates the skyline with the summit often covered by clouds, this gives rise to a lush tropical vegitation that stretches down to a magnificent coast.

As the International airport is on St Kitts your arrival on Nevis is by small motor launch across the 4km straights where you are welcomed by the formidable mountain peak and a fabulous sandy cove where you disembark to transfer to your hotel.

The Nevis Marathon, Half Marathon and 10km run along the coast road, that circles the Island in 19 miles, from Charlestown. Its mostly undulating with some flat coastal parts. but with a fairly intimidating long steady climb known locally as the Anaconda. There is also a 5km warm up run to help you acclimatise on the Thursday before.
