We traveled up to Peak Heaven and called several times to no avail before learning that it is closed. They have been experiencing management changes (we were told by locals) and it is uncertain when (or if) it will open again. I just wanted people to be aware before they wasted hours of their time like we did.

That's what we were told by two taxi people, but ... we did see the sign. I see that there are no reviews after May,2013. We wanted to check it out on our own, but time didn't permit. If it is still there, the sign is very hard to see. It's at a road located immediately to the NE of... More

We were in St. Kitt's Nevis in July and the weather is hot and humid, but at Peak Heaven, the wind blows, the balmy mixes with the breeze and the shade and it is sublime. In addition to being an absolutely beautiful spot, with interesting gardens and design and wonderfully hand crafted elements throughout including games for the children, the... More

This was by far our best experience on Nevis! We wanted to go hiking to the top of the volcano...and they gave us friendly service and found an awesome guide for us! (They also only charged about half as much as other tour companies.) It is a family-run business and they were by far the FRIENDLIEST people we met on... More

This hidden place up a track is hard to find and impossible to miss!! It leads up the mountain and has a garden and cafe which are both lovely and surprising, the 'owner is kind and thoughtful, the ambience is a throwback to the island as it once was. Closed on Sunday and Monday , which is a shame .

We climbed last week on vacation, first time to Nevis (2 couples, 40ish years old). After reading the reviews we were unsure whether to use a guide and just how hard it would be. We took a guide (which was worth it) and found it a bit harder than expected. The view at the to is amazing, the trail is... More

This is a place that just needs a bit more - effort. It is run by a wonderful family that just need to put a bit more into it. The first thing you come across is a small childrens play area. At the top there is a small museum that really needs a few more things in it, also a... More

We opted to take 'the Bush tea and village hike' which was a gentle amble with Edward Herbert to show us the remains of the Rawlins Estate where his family had lived in years gone by. He also showed and told us about the various plants that have been used for years in Bush Teas and for healing. It was... More

This is the hidden gem of Nevis. Great playground for kids, total seclusion from the rest of the island. Trails lead to top of Nevis Peak in a few hours. Quick and friendly service. What a lunch!

Peak haven We rode the ferry from St. Kitts to Nevis for the day and went up to Peak Haven for lunch. The view was awesome and it was very peaceful and relaxing. There was a playground for the kids and a few games that Herbert showed the kids how to play. They also offers many tours, but we didn't... More
