probably the best beach on Nevis, it isn't too crowded, it's very long so you can get some alone time if you want, the way into the water is gradual, and the surf is very low. not great for body boarding, but wonderful for relaxing and small kids

This was my favorite beach on Nevis. It is on the leeward Caribbean side, so no surf to speak of. Nice Sandy bottom, no rocks or seaweed. Great for swimming. I stayed out in the water for hours. No current, be if you don't swim, be aware that it drops off to deeper than 6 feet within a few feet... More

Pinney's Beach is the public access beach, shared with the Four Seasons. Wide and clean, right in front of Double Deuces and Sunshines. Good snorkeling.

The water was crystal clear and warm. It was absolutely gorgeous. We did not have to compete for beach chairs at all, but this may be due to the time of year that we traveled.

The sea is calm and the water is clear.The sand is of volcanic origin and not white as some other Caribbean islands.If you want a massage you can get on the beach or just get a beach chair and and enjoy the sunshine with a killer bee drink from...

Beautiful stretch of beach with a lot of restaurants and bars for lunch and drinks. The sand is really soft and the water is clear, calm and beautiful. Not great for snorkeling, but you will see some fishes near the breakers.
