Oh, this is where it all started and happens

I have been going to Sunshines since the mid '90s when it was a steel can wit chicken cooking. Very fun place , really casual. Sunshine is real, and a real host. Good local food and drinks right on Pinneys Beach. Sometimes the service a bit slow but , hey, your on Nevis!

We went for lunch and the atmosphere was not the relaxed, laid back vibe we were expecting. The food was good but the staff seemed irritable and when a couple went for a walk while their food was being prepared the staff got upset. They sat us with another couple, which turned out to be fun.

Went here for lunch, great killer bee cocktails , food was lovely. Chicken wings and the lobster sandwich were excellent. Service was friendly. True Caribbean experience. On a great beach with cold beer, what more could you want.

My husband and I stayed have so far had lunch at Sunshines twice this week. We have plans to visit again twice before we leave the island! The killer bees are very strong and delicious. We started with the jerk leg and it didn't disappoint. Excellent flavor and rivaled jerk in Negril. My husband got the lobster sandwich and I... More

Walked from Charlestown along the beach to find this place. Our hotel manager recommended it. It was lovely. The ambience is very Nevisian i.e. Laid back and relaxed. We were greeted with a friendly welcome. I asked for a Caribea (local beer) but received Killer Bee. Not too unhappy as this is Sunshines special brew / cocktail. It blew my... More

This is a can't miss destination when visiting Nevis. Try the Killer Bees which are wildly known as some of the most potent in the Caribbean. The lobster sandwich is also a great choice.

A local hangout with the Killer Bee drinks. Great for small groups, families, couples, singles. Good local food choices, super ambiance. only downside: requires a key to the bathroom.

We have eaten at Sunshine's on every visit to Nevis. This trip we were fortunate to be within walking distance and ate there twice. Yes--try the Killer Bee for a great rum drink that is not cloyingly sweet. Lots of fresh nutmeg and angustora bitters and a great buy at $5. Hubs has had 2 with no ill effect-I stop... More

A landmark place on Nevis visited by many celebrities. Famous for their Killer Bee rum punch. Me and my wife spent an afternoon here and grabbed some lunch and of course drank some rum punch. They serve decent bar type food and the atmosphere here is upbeat. A recommended stop if your visiting Nevis. Just remember when drinking Killer Bees... More

Right beside the Four Seasons Resort is Sunshines, a Jammin' Jamaican lounge perfect for what ails you! Friendly Richard will take you under his wing and get you going on the Killer Bees, one of the better island drinks we've had on our vacations! Be warned, they are powerful and will sneak up on you! One will make you very... More
