A favorite haunt for celebrities, the Caribbean island of Nevis is small and secluded, a place of lush gardens and tropical birds. The seven-villa property Paradise Beach Nevis is still more private and exclusive.
With amenities like a private pool, ocean views, round-the-clock concierge service, a personal butler and the option of a personal chef, you could be marooned here forever. Or so one can dream.
The island offers outdoor attractions like volcano hiking, swimming, horseback riding and stunning, multi-hued beaches of white and black sand, and is also the birthplace of U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton.
In February, golfers converge on Nevis and nearby St. Kitts for the annual five-day St. Kitts-Nevis Admiral’s Cup Pro-Am.
Another island-hopping idea: Sail by catamaran to St. Barts for lunch and enjoy a quick return by plane in time for dinner on new flight offerings from Tradewind Aviation.
