|About these ratings|
On Nevis' west edge, north of Charlestown, lies one of the most talked about beaches of the two islands. The smooth saffron-colored sands of Pinney's often grace the glossy pages of travel publications, and to most travelers, the beach lives up to its hype.
Other visitors, however, note that Pinney's is a little more rustic than they'd anticipated. You shouldn't be surprised to see one or two pelicans fishing off shore, or run into water that's more muddy than clear on some days. Just remember Pinney's is the longest beach on Nevis -- approximately four miles -- so if you don't like the view in front of you, just move a few paces down to less polluted sands and more translucent water.
Pinney's is a public beach open 24/7, so spread your towel out and plan on staying awhile. You even have several affordable eating options should you get hungry: There's Chevy's Calypso Bar, the Sunshine Beach Bar and the Double Deuce Beach Bar.
