Beach, Nevis © Meghan E. Patterson
Oualie (pronounced wah-lee), meaning 'beautiful waters', was the original name of the island of Nevis, and the pretty stretch of sand known as Oualie Beach lives up to this name very well. Located on the northern shore of the island, Oualie Beach boasts fine yellow sand and sheltered waters that are ideal for swimming. The area also makes a good base for a holiday on the island of Nevis, with the excellent Oualie Beach Resort providing top-class accommodation in the picturesque bay. Oualie Beach is home to some fun activities, with water taxis, scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, mountain biking and windsurfing easily organised from its pleasant dock area.
