Across the two-mile Narrows Channel from St Kitts is the beautiful little island of Nevis. The circular island covers an area of 36 sq miles and the central peak, 3,232 ft, is usually shrouded in white clouds and mist. It reminded Columbus of Spanish snow-capped mountains and so he called the island ‘Las Nieves’. For the Caribs, it was Oualie, the land of beautiful water. Smaller than St Kitts, it is also quieter. The atmosphere is low-key and easy-going; all the same, it is an expensive island. The delightful plantation inns have long been a favourite with the well-heeled British but the construction of the Four Seasons Hotel now attracts golfing Americans.
