snorkling

Good snorkelling if you don't mind meeting the occasional stingray. Beach too hot to walk without slip flops in in the afternoon

Golden sandy beach, warm Caribbean Sea and sun and a backdrop of Nevis Volcano. We visited Pinney's multiple times during our 2 week stay on Nevis as it was a pleasure to walk up and down this long stretch of beach. We visited the local bars of Turtle Time, Limes, Sunshine and Double Deuce that are closely grouped together all... More

Sailing excursion dropped us to beach to hang out for an hour. Immediately upon arrival we were solicited to rent lounge chairs & an umbrella to the tune of $10 for the hour?! The beach digs were dumpy. There were two bars nearby as well as the Four Seasons within a short walk. We were told that the resort wouldn't... More

You must try this beach if you go to Nevis! We went around 10AM on a Saturday and had the entire beach to ourselves for about 30 minutes. People began trickling in closer to 11 but it was still less than 20 people total on the beach at all times while we there. The water is clear and calm. Sunshine's... More

We visited Nevis while staying in St. Kitts. We took the ferry over and spent the day at Pinney's Beach. We took a taxi from the ferry dock to Sunshine's Beach Bar and went on the beach right there. The beach was very nice with soft white sand. The water right off the beach was very clear with a sandy... More

As an instructor trainer for Red Cross, I had a great opportunity to assist in the Swim Lessons that were offered this summer on Nevis. We look forward to the construction of a new community pool.

The beach is long with soft sand, a little steep as observed by others but not bad. There is plenty of room and numerous facilities, ranging from basic beach bars to the high end Four Seasons. But a warning: we checked the maps and asked in town about walking to the beach from Charlestown -- about a mile? The distance... More

Pristine beach with amazing views. Relaxing hammock on the beach with shade trees and cool breezes. Ferry is the only transportation to the island.
