Nevis by Anne Knight

I was recently invited by the Nevis Tourism Authority to join a small group of agents to discover the island of Nevis, one of the jewels of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. Easily accessible by 10 minute water taxi from St Kitts, or a short hop onward from Antigua, St Barth’s or Puerto Rico, the island offers genuine Caribbean hospitality in a relaxing scenic spot.

An island of rainforests, reefs, and historic ruins, Nevis has something for everyone. Dominating the centre of the island is Mount Nevis, the dormant volcano perpetually cloaked in mist, named by Columbus when he first discovered it in 1493. The serene and natural beauty of Nevis, forms the perfect backdrop for exploring the remains of historic churches and marvellous old sugar plantations on the Nevis Heritage Trail.

Beaches are long and beautiful, whilst the waters around the island are home to 4 species of turtle with good snorkelling options just offshore and diving around wrecks and natural reefs. It’s easy and affordable to hire a car to explore, or why not join a Funky Monkey tour off-roading on hillside trails, for some spectacular coastal views!

About Anne Knight

Travelling to new places has always been a fascination for me, and ever since I can remember, whenever time and budget permits, I go! Perhaps it was the summers spent exploring France as a child, or maybe the hours spent daydreaming as I watched the planes out of the window – either way, it was perhaps inevitable that I landed up working in travel. I have worked for over 25 years in the industry – everything from Campsite Courier to Passenger Service Agent at Gatwick to Reservations Manager for a villa specialist. But the attraction of being able to tailor bespoke holidays worldwide for clients, led me in 1998 to the world of independent retail, and I’ve never looked back. I joined the team here at Ashdown in 2005 and happily, I still get great pleasure in creating the ideal itinerary for a client.
