We took a day trip over to Nevis just to check it out. We came in on the North side of the island. The locals there found us a cab ( Sir Daniel) ( All the cabs and Drivers name their vehicles with something that means something to them.

What a great beach bar. Walking distance from the Four Seasons. And, home of the Killer Bee drink! Good times.

After eating at the Four Seasons (on campus) for most of our trip, we were encouraged by other lodgers to try out Sunshines. Oh my goodness, you must order the lobster from the grill. Copious serving and so sweet. We met Sunshine and his son and they are a delight to visit. Authentic NEVISIANS indeed as well as the entire... More

If you want to spend your time rubbing shoulders with Four Seasons guests who have been buggied to the bar, or tourists hunting out the 'killer bee' then go here. If not, avoid it. There are much better more traditional places with good old rum punch. Even better bring your own beer and sit on the beach, BBQs will spark... More

Sunshine's Cafe is an iconic place located on Pinney's Beach on the island of Nevis. Sunshine himself is a very friendly guy and he has created the ultimate beach "boat drink" -- the Killer B. You have to try it if you visit Nevis. It's a must.

This place was within walking distance from our villas and it became a favourite. The Killer Bees are deadly (cocktails) and the chicken wings are the best on the island. Go here for a great local vibe, music and food.

Is spite of all of the celebrity pictures, the famous "Killer B" rum punch was over-spiced and the inside was just plain HOT! We had to leave because there was no air moving and a very small bar. Bartender was indifferent at best. Not the way to earn tips, as you know.

This is a great beach bar and a fun place to burn some time on a relaxed afternoon. The Killer Bee was as described...powerful drink. Fun day.

Good lobster (be sure you have a large lobster, and if you get 2 small ones, please make a comment, as it is against law in Nevis to fish for small lobsters (or some day there wont be any lobster). The more customers notice (spend time at Fisheries in Nevis and learn the law), more fisherman wont sell tiny lobsters.... More
