Double Deuce, Nevis

Double Deuce

Double Deuce is one of our favorite beach bars on Nevis, going back to our visits there in 2011.  Since then, the bar moved location a bit, but it remains one of our favorites on the island. First, the location.  It’s still on Pinney’s Beach, but it’s closer to the Four Seasons than it used to be.  Back in 2011,…Read More

In the six years since we were last in Nevis, there have been a few changes.  The biggest is the development of the beach bars just to the south of the Four Seasons Nevis.  Back in 2011, there were basically three bars, Sunshine’s, Double Deuce, and Chevy’s.  The area where those bars were located has really developed into a hot spot…Read More

Green vervet monkeys are believed to…Read More

Catamaran Sail on Caona, St. Kitts and Nevis

It’s time to get out on the water aboard Caona, a 47-foot catamaran in the Leeward Islands Charters fleet.  At the helm was our captain, Lennox Wallace, and our destination was Shitten Bay, a cove off the southwestern coast of St. Kitts. Caona is moored in Nevis, and the crew and boat met us at the Four Seasons dock for…Read More

The Place to “Bee!” Sunshine’s, Nevis

Our first stop on our 2011 trip to Nevis was Sunshine’s, a Nevis institution and home to the famous “Killer Bee.”  This trip would be no different, except this time I would avoid the sting that follows consuming three of those delicious rum concoctions.  After a long day of traveling, beginning at 2:00 a.m. Nevis time, there was no question…Read More
