We went for a day trip to Nevis which included a tour of Nevis in the morning and beach time in the afternoon. Pinney's Beach is by far the best beach of the two islands of St Kitts and Nevis. Have lunch at Lime or Sunshine's or wherever and then hit the beach. The Four Seasons is just a 3... More

If your looking for a great beach to visit when on Nevis, then this beach can't be overlooked. It offered a truly enjoyable time.

We headed off on a catamaran from St Kitts, the crossing was quiet lively as the sea was not calm and we all got a wetting, I had my swimwear under my shorts. I had been on that crossing before. We stopped at a small quayside and picked up mini buses run by Limes tours and our driver was excellent... More

Although we didn't visit other beaches during our short trip to Nevis, we find it hard to believe there are any better on the island. We took a ferry from St Kitts to spend a day on Nevis and rather than take a taxi to get around (what a relief), we decided to walk around since it seemed that distances... More

This beach is a great beach for sunning, playing and swimming. The water is not rough and free of seaweed. Can get crowded on "cruise visitor" days.Great food and chairs to rent.

Beach is nothing special for the Caribbean. Sand is volcanic. Part of the beach is the Four Seasons, part of it is local. It's nice and calm, but not spectacular.

Poor beach at Four Seasons Resort. Lovely pool for adults and kids. Great golf. Rooms need redoing. Excellent service staff at pools.

The beach is lovely, if you get there at 11am you will be the only people on it until 1pm when a couple of catamarans come in carrying tourists from St Kitts. They stay 2 or 3 hours then you have the beach to yourself again for the rest of the day. It's worth a head's up on the beach... More

Really lovely beach. We enjoyed a nice long walk down the beach and a swim in the beautiful water. the property of the Four Seasons resort is also on this beach. Walk down to Lime Bar for a drink.
