This is a fabulous beach on which to spend some time on Nevis. At over 4 miles long it offers a range of experiences, from eating in the numerous eateries in one spot, to the luxury 4 seasons hotel further along or just complete privacy...More
We took the passenger ferry from St. Kitts to Charlestown, and walked to Pinneys Beach from the downtown area. You could easily get a taxi to Pinney's but we wanted to walk (It was about 25-30 minutes). When you arrive from the south, you'll be...More
We spent about 2 hours on Pinney's beach as part of of a tour from St. Kitts. The beach was clean and clear with umbrellas and lounge chairs for our comfort. I don't believe there was access to renting snorkeling equipment. We had goggles and...More
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
You can walk from the beach restaurant s, past the locals small beach side bars to Four Seasons Resort and beyond to Mango Restaurant and to Paridice beach if you don't mind a bit of a hike.

We actually booked the trip to Nevis through the Marriott where we were staying. However, there are many personal options outside of this one. Most of the cab drivers are de facto tour guides and can arrange to pick you up from your lodgings and transport you to the ferry location with instructions on going to Nevis. Nevis as I'm sure you are aware is another island close by (about 30 minute ferry ride).
Personally, I think a package through one of the tour operators is much easier as they handle your ferry fees, access and arrange a tour with lunch included and beach time on Nevis.

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
