Nice swimming, but no snorkling. Good restaurants. Liked the food and drinks. Would like to return.!

If you want to swim, this is the place. Calm, warm waters, with clearly defined swimming areas, and equally defined boat channels for reaching docks or reaching shore. It only got a four star review because my wife & I are rating this against other...More

We spent the day at the beach here. The beach is nice and the water was perfect. We rented unbrellas and chairs, they were $15 US for 2 chairs and an umbrella, I thought that was very reasonable considering prices on US beaches. There were...More

This is the beach outside of the Four Seasons Resort. Very nice beach with Staff to bring water, towels, drink and whatever you may need. There were paddle boards, snorkels and various other water activities provided for a charge.

There is no better beach on Nevis to see the sunset than Pinney's Beach. If you are lucky you may just see the "Green Flash". I love it.

There is a shuttle and some catamaran charters, but your best bet is probably the water taxi.

I arrived by boat. I would suggest a taxi from town. You could walk it if you really wanted to.

Friar's Beach or Pinney's Beach? (6 Replies)
We have one day on a cruise and both beaches sound spectacular. I would base my decision on ease to get there, snorkeling, and cost involved. Thanks for any suggestions.

South Friar's is on St. Kitts. Pinney's is on Nevis. Where is your ship docking? I'd let that be my guide.
Pinney's Beach question. (6 Replies)
Hello, We decided to spend one of our days in Nevis and are leaning to Pinney's Beach. Does anyone know if there is an area that we can rent chairs and umbrellas or a palapa and where along Pinney's it is? Also, are there any facilities? We'd like to hang out around some of the Beach Bars if possible. Thanks, Chris

At Pinney's Beach both Sunshine's ans Chevy's Beach Bar have "free" lounge chairs that you can use. Both places have areas with shade. If by "facilities" you mean "rest rooms" you'll find fairly primitive ones at Chevy's (Sunshine's are still underconstruction but should be finished in a couple of weeks.) You can also pay an exhorbident "day fee (think in terms of $300US) if you weant to use the facilities at the Four Seasons Resort.
Pinney's Beach palm trees (3 Replies)
We are headed to St Martin in 3 weeks to pick up a 36 foot boat and sail around the area. We were thinking of heading over to Nevis but heard that the beaches look funny because all of the palm trees are stubs from a hurricane. Is this true? Is it worth a long all day said to spend a few nights at Pinney's beach?

About 5 years ago a disease call Lethal Yellow killed almost all the coconut palm trees on Pinney's Beach (and other areas of Nevis - mostly along the Caribbean side of the island). While there are a number of ""bare" palm tree trucks still standing (mostly on public lands) many of the private land owners (including the Four Seasons Resort) have removed the dead trees from their properties and replaced them with disease resistant varieties. On the public lands new, younger palm trees have...More
