Nice tawny sand beach with dark cerulean water. Rain in the area will make the water appear a bit murky, but the calm nature of the water and relatively warm temperature makes it a pleasure to swim here. Not as naturally beautiful as other beaches in the Caribbean, but great for kids. Not many salespeople, so very quiet and calm.... More

My wife and I are avid snorkelers and knew ahead of time that Nevis had sub par snorkeling. That said, we tried the few local spots and Pinney's Beach was a pleasant surprise. Snorkeling out around the rocks in front of the resorts, we saw thousands of smaller fish - tang, wrasse, sergeant majors, etc. We also saw a stingray,... More

We spent a lovely afternoon here and I would gladly return. The view was excellent and friends reported good snorkelling.

Beautiful day and very nice beach! A short 20 minute walk from the pier. Rented chairs and umbrella for $10 US. There's a bar for drinks and very warm and welcoming people.

My love and I visited this beach while at the Four Seasons Hotel. We walked along the beach which was calm and clean. There were not many people on the beach at the time which was awesome. The dock was not accessible so that was disappointing. Otherwise, no complaints.

The beach at Nevis is one of the best in the world. Pinney's Beach is beautiful. This public beach is clean, safe, and beautiful. We spent several days on the beach and lots of time just walking. Pinney's Beach was one of the highlights of our trip to Nevis.

Long stretch of beautiful soft sand and brilliant blue water. Calm for swimming and other water sports. Lots of restaurants/bars open to the public.

But i enjoy everyone (frds), so I still go, but it is VERY built up. Stop building!!! Why, when you have beauty, do people (businesss... More

Even at the height of tourist season you will find lots of room and can find a secluded spot. If you want more people around you can hit Lime's or Sunshine's drink shacks and rent the use of a beach chair.
