a place of natural purity and timeless tranquility

the islandSituated near the top of the Lesser Antilles archipelago about 200 miles south of Puerto Rico, just west of Antigua and a few miles from St. Barts measuring only seven miles long and five miles wide, Nevis is one of the great unspoilt places, richly deserving its nickname Queen of the Caribees. This calm, lush island paradise with its year-round warm sun tempered by gentle, cooling breezes provides ample opportunities for hiking, exploring the lush rainforest, snorkeling or simply relaxing on its white sandy beaches. And relaxing is easy on one of the most welcoming of all Caribbean islands. As the Nevisians say Youre only a stranger here once.

the perfect retreatArchaeology shows that Nevis has been inhabited for over 2,000 years, being visited by successive waves of Indian peoples most of whom were originally native to Central America. In the centuries that followed, the island experienced turbulent times. Yet it has always been the tranquility, beauty and friendliness of the place that shone through. Today, it is one of the most peaceful of all Caribbean islands, with a democratic government, independent judiciary, a free press and one of the highest literacy rates in the Western hemisphere. It is that rarest of things: a place where happiness and relaxation come naturally.

a brief history of the Queen of the CaribbeesNevis was first thought to have been inhabited over 2,000 years ago by indians native to Central America, followed by Arawak indians from the basin of the Orinoco River (now Venezuela). Some centuries after the Arawak around AD1200 Carib indians became the next civilization to put down roots here. Today, archaeological sites across the island have unearthed pottery, shells and flint tools all dating to these early islanders. It is thought that at around AD800 Nevis may have had a population of 5,000. Nevis entered European history in 1493 when on his second voyage Columbus thought the clouds gathering on the peak were reminiscent of the catholic miracle of Nuestra Seora de las Nieves (Our Lady of the Snows). He did not, however, step ashore. The earliest European visitor is thought to have been Captain Bartholomew Gilbert in 1603, but Nevis was not officially settled by the British until 1628. Initially, its success was based in tobacco, but like St. Kitts, this focus shifted onto sugar cane production, and its wealth continued to grow. By 1660, it had become the most profitable per head of all British colonies. This, and its great natural beauty, made Nevis a target for other European nations, and thus began two hundred years in which the Spanish, French and Dutch all sought to rest control from Britain. The first half of the 20th century saw the decline of the sugar industry; the great estates were abandoned, and while some mills continued to be operated into the latter half, the last mill ceased operations in 1958. Critically, the Moyne commission of the 1930s found that Britain had a duty to support the island; improved sanitation and education were two key results. In the 1960s, Britain established the Federation of St Kitts, Nevis and Anguilla; which had limited self-governance, St Kitts and Nevis were granted full independence in 1983. Since then, a stable democratic government and independent judiciary has flourished making Nevis one of the most attractive islands in the Caribbean to visit and own a home in.

The facility provides 100 moorings, of which 95 can facilitate yachts up to 60 feet. The remaining five can facilitate yachts up to 90 feet.
