Fun on Pinney's Beach © ToddonFlickr
One of the best beaches in the Caribbean, Pinney's Beach is the epitome of paradise with its fine white sands backed by palm trees and lapped by calm Caribbean waters. Lying within convenient distance of Charlestown, Pinney's Beach has a few casual restaurants and beach bars, and is the closest thing Nevis has to a party beach, although the length of the beach ensures that a secluded spot can always be found. The four-mile (6km) stretch of sand is never crowded and is backed by a beautiful lagoon, with ideal conditions for swimming; however, Pinney's Beach is not ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling as the water can be quite murky.
Address: Near Charlestown, half a kilometer from The Narrows strait.
