The Birthplace of Alexander Hamilton

The tiny island of Nevis is the epitome of a tropical hideaway. With an area of five miles by seven, it’s possible to circumnavigate the entire island in less than a two-hour drive. But within this tiny space lies an abundance of sights and delights.

Tee-off for an unforgettable round on the championship golf course at the ultra luxurious Four Seasons resort. And if you’d rather treat yourself to a little TLC, the resort’s spa offers a five-star rejuvenation experience. Saddle up and experience the exhilarating thrill—not to mention the romance—of riding across one of the stunning beaches on horseback. Trek through the lush rainforest filled with bamboo and tropical fruit trees and be entertained by the monkeys swinging through the branches above. Or learn more about Alexander Hamilton at the Museum of Nevis History located in the restored stone home in Charlestown where the Founding Father was born.

Dive deeper into the island’s history with a visit to one of the old sugar plantations in varying stages of preservation and decay. With intriguing tales to tell, and perhaps a few ghosts for good measure, exploring these relics of the past is a pleasant way to while away an afternoon in paradise.
