Pinney's beach is on the Four Season's resort and we spend the first two days of our 6 days on the beach. It is very quiet without a lot of people around. The service from the bar tenders was excellent. There are a lot of beach chairs with umbrella's available and you don't have to worry about not getting chairs,... More

We traveled to Nevis and visited Pinney's Beach in March 2014. I was travelling with my two children (aged 5 and 7). The water was clear as glass, shallow and calm, perfect for them to swim in. The bottom of the ocean was sandy without rocks. The beach sand was fine and dark brown (therefore hot on little feet) but... More

We took a catamaran to Nevis from St Kitts. The views were amazing. The water was beautiful but the sand was dark, probably volcanic. We enjoyed a relaxing stay soaking in the beauty.

A long stretch of calm Caribbean sea with a walkable beach and bars such as Lime there too. If you only have a day this is the beach to go too. That's why Four Seasons is there too.

We ferried over from St. Kitts for the day and landed at Pinney's Beach. This is always a choice of ours due mainly to to the local beach bar we frequent. Even without though, the beach is outstanding. The water is crystal clear and very warm and the views both north to St. Kitts and south along the island are... More

The beach at Pinney's is supposedly to best on the island, but I found it to be just "ok". Perhaps I am spoiled since I live in Puerto Rico and because I've been to many other islands with spectacular beaches, but this beach is definitely not in my top list. Don't get me wrong, it is fine, there is nothing... More

This was our favorite beach on the island. The waters are calm for the kids to swim. There is a sandy beach for the kids to play. There is also a bar that serves drinks you can take onto the beach. There is a small playground for the children, but half of the swings were broken and it was too... More

Situated to get the best view of the sunset. A bit small-must have been some erosion from the recent hurricanes.Enough room and service is good

Beautiful beach with plenty of lounge chairs and people to get you beverages. Right at the Famous Sunshines Bar with their Killer Bee drink. Playground for the kids, bonfires in the evening, food all day. Can't wait to go back!!
