If you end up in Nevis you are sure to hear about Sunshine's and their infamous Killer bees. We actually got some on 2 separate occasions, both of which were delicious. The second time, we were coming back from a snorkeling trip and had our cab driver wait for us in the parking lot as we grabbed takeout lobster salad... More

$40 US for 2 fish sandwiches and one coke?!?! What a rip off. Bar location is nice, right on the beach. Killer bee drink is fun. But watch out if you want to order food. High prices and average quality.

I visited Sunshines on a recent trip to Nevis. We arrived late morning and rented two chairs on the beach, expecting to have a nice relaxing day. About 10 minutes in, I noticed a sign at the end of the row of beach chairs that said, "Come take a photo with the monkey 5 U.S.". I looked a bit closer... More

This was the first stop on our beach pub crawl. What a great find!! Our bartender John was super nice, and after a couple Carib drafts, started us on Killer Bees. Boy, did we get stung!! Tried the jerk chicken and conch fritters, both excellent. Overall bar has really cool vibe, including trampoline for the girls after a few drinks... More

A short walk from Four Seasons, this beach bar offers food and drinks that are far above the beachy bar facade. The Killer bees drinks are buzz worthy and the salads and fish sandwiches tasty. Staff is super friendly. They were out of lobster today, only disappointment. Will try again.

We asked our staff at the Nesbit Plantation to recommend a good restaurant to experience local cuisine. Sunshine's Beach Bar was the first place they recommended. We were not disappointed! This is a great open air restaurant/bar with a very casual and comfortable environment. The food had a very local flair to it and was delicious. Prices were also very... More

I was a little worried to take my kids here since the local seemed to think this place was rowdy and possibly dangerous…told to take my kids early. I am not sure what they were talking about as this place is fabulous. I was expecting bar food, and ended up having divine lobster. The salad with roasted veggies was great!... More

We had only a few hours to spend on Nevis so we toured the island then went to Sunshine's. It was early, 10:30am, so the restaurant was not yet open. Jerome set us up under a palapa, though, and gladly brought us some Killer Bees. Wow. I can't say they taste great - they taste like rum! - but they... More
