No visit to Nevis is complete without a visit to Sunshine's! The warmth of the man Sunshine is only matched by the high quality of the food and the world famour Killer Bee. Great atmosphere.

What can one say about Sunshine's that has not already been said? Sunshine's Beach bar is a Nevisian institution, and even though it is next to the famous Four Season's resort, there is no pretense about this place. Located on Pinney's Beach, Sunshine's attracts tourists,...More
