wandering around Charlestown we came across a small art gallery and wandered in. The gallery is very interesting with a variety of art forms on show. Most impressive for me was a huge piece using fabric and stitching by Deborah Tyrell. By chance Deborah was in the gallery and we were able to have a chat about her work which is truly wonderful. I would have loved to have made her a rich lady by buying several pieces, but alas my favourite pieces were just out of my price range.

It appeared to be under repair at the time. It is very near to the town. The view is pretty and there are shops there for beverage purchases not sure if food was available there too.

I arrived in Nevis from St Kitts via ferry. The ride was roughly 30 minutes. The port area isn’t too big. There’s a few touristy shops around. The ferry back to Basseterre was on time but I’ve heard that this isn’t always the case. Apparently, the ferry sometimes operates on “island time”. All in all, I didn’t experience any complications.

Charlestown is tiny but there is so much to see and do! The Shipwreck Museum is well worth taking time in. The harbour is beautiful, interesting to walk around on any day. I’ve been before when it was stormy - trying to get photos of the water crashing up the harbour walls. Today was warm and sunny with the tide coming in - just as interesting. The basin is now surrounded by various cafes which were lovely. We had a drink at HBQ and Tapas at Cubs on the Deck - the food was delicious, sitting in the late afternoon sun just made it perfect! Cannot recommend highly enough if you enjoy good tapas! Great range of choice for vege and best of all Gluten Free! Perfect end to a lovely day out (spent the morning at Eden).

Probably the only bit of Nevis you see on the news as people line up to greet Prince Harry on his trip to Nevis or more recently Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, but there is beautiful beach next door called Hangman’s Cove for probably very sombre reasons. Visit the great fruit market in the old Cotton Ginnery, and wander along the front to see the historic cannons, or get on the regular ferry to visit St Kitts.

Took Ferry over to Nevis for a quick visit. Cost from St. Kitts cruise port was $10US plus $1 tax per person 1 way. Buy return ticket on your way back. Walked around the little town, not much to do. It looked very laid-back. While on our walk we came upon Nevis's hot spring...couple people were enjoying this. Spent about an hour and a half then back to St. Kitts.

The trip by small ferry from St.Kitts to Nevis island is worthwhile alone for the volcanic cone of Nevis peak rising in front. The port itself is convenient, since it is in right in the center of Charlestown, but it is not an attraction in itself. Unlike Port Zante at St.Kitts Basseterre there don't seem to be too many cruise ships coming here. There was none, when we visited. And if Nevis should be in their schedule, they would definitely have to anchor in the open and bring their passengers by tender boats to the small pier of Charlestown harbour.

After a stroll through quite pleasant Charlestown we took a taxi outside the port to drive us around the island, where there are some of the more interesting sights, like the Botanical Gardens.

Passed through Charlestown on a trip from St Kitts, very friendly but a little run down like some other places in the Caribbean.

We docked here when coming from St. Kitts on the ferry and we boarded here when we left. Different boats in each direction. Bathroom facilities, little bar and seating in a shaded area to wait in.

Not much to report just a port. We had no reason to access this and nothing really to say about this area as it was pretty and right on the water but nothing remarkable.
