What a Cool Beach Bar!

We were on a cruise docked in St. Kitts and took a catamaran to a reef to snorkel and then onto Nevis. We came right onto the beach between the Four Seasons and Sunshine's. Our captain on the Irie Lime warned us with a poem about the Killer Bee drinks at Sunshine "One bee, two bee, three bee... read more

Great music, comfy vibe, slow-mo Nevis-style. The rum punch is okay, nothing special, but the lobster is to die for...We also loved our servers, and everything about this place.

We were on a family day out in Nevis and this eating place was recommended by our taxi driver. The food was ok. I had snapper fish which was well seasoned. Those family members that had the bbq chicken wings said they were really tasty. The service was slow and I eventually had to take the drinks order from the... More

Sunshines has great food and drinks. We went twice on our 7 day trip! Our favorite menu items were the conch fritters and killer bee rum punch. The service is great and the staff is very nice.

I remember sunshines, when I use to come to Nevis years ago. The owner actually knows my husband from when he was a child . I must say this time I was really disappointed. The prices were outrageous. We were 6, and we each had a lobster roll, a famous killer bee, and some water and conch fritters to share.... More

Good lunch spot just back from the beach. We went there a few times for the ribs, lobster and fish. Food was great and service is casual, laid back island style. It does get crowded during the weekends, especially at peak lunch times....it's always good to see a locals at Sunshine's, a good sign that the food is good and... More

Went there for lunch during our tour. The Jerk wings were good and the 'Killer Bee' drink was OK (served in a plastic cup however). Prices were reasonable for a beach bar.

Too fun! Delicious food, REALLY good. Killer Bees were strong but fine. Service laid back, but very good. Had a great time, look forward to returning on a weekend night when it's hopping. Bring bug repellant.

A place on the beach where you can get good food, something cold to drink plus, of course, the famous (or should that be infamous) Killer Bee!!!
