  • Oldest Synagogue in the Caribbean

    An old, one-story stone structure behind the modern administration building in Charlestown, Nevis, is possibly the oldest synagogue in the Caribbean. Some believe it is the mikva (ceremonial bath) and all that remains of the oldest Jewish synagogue in the Caribbean.

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated in the heart of Charlestown, opposite the ferry docks, V's Courtyard is basically the only place to be (and open) on a Friday night in Nevis. It lives up to its name as a relatively quaint area nestled in between the town's buildings where it is open air and hosts a well stocked bar, dancing area and plenty of access to stare up into the sky at the plentiful stars.

    Music is all soca, dance hall, reggae and any of the latest tunes of the Caribbean. Popular with mainly anybody.. good place to go after an evening drinking at a bar elsewhere. The price of entry varies on a) who you are b) how busy it is / what time you arrive.

    There have been several times where I've been allowed in for free, however other times where i had to pay if I was with a male companion for example. Price ranges from 0 to 20EC (Eastern caribbean) for entrance fee.

    Recommended to anyone who visits Nevis.. popular with locals and tourists alike.
    It is also a restaurant during the day!

    Dress Code: Dress nicely.. no particular dress of notice.. casual will also do.

Nevis Transportation

  • Jeeping It

    I strongly recommend hiring a jeep if you intend to explore Nevis.. even for a day. The main road is only paved adequately until you reach Gingerland, then you're on your own.. particularly bad for the underside of a car. Exploring the villages is extremely rewarding and using a jeep will allow you to reach areas comparatively difficult to traverse...

  • Buses in Nevis

    Buses in Nevis are privately owned but organised by the government. They run fairly regularly from town either towards Newcastle or in the opposite direction (towards the Baths then up the hill). Fare depends on the journey but I usually paid 2.50EC (Eastern caribbean dollars) to get from town to Morning Star which is about a 10 to 15 minute bus...

Nevis What to Pack

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: yes.. bring them

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: loose, light clothing. It is generally hot all year round (cooler around Christmas)
    Shoes should be sandals or equivalent.. don't bother with socks
    Bikinis for the beach
    Jackets and jumpers are virtually unheard of

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: All the usual travelling stuff you would bring, but anything you would need is readily available in chemists / shops here.
    Mosquito repellent.. best to buy the brands they sell here.. find them more effective. they are particularly prevalent at night, so ensure your accomodation has either AC or mosquito nets. Get yourself sprayed up before it hits 6pm!

    Photo Equipment: Camera to record all your footsteps!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Plenty of opportunity to windsurf, scuba dive etc. I had a problem trying to find snorkelling goggles.. cheap ones, so I advise you buy them before you arrive.

    Favorite thing: When we came up the island chain from the south, we passed Nevis and that was as close as I got to it.

    Fondest memory: We ate breakfast on the island side of the ship, and watched the scenery go by as we ate.

    Unfortunately, the windows were encrusted with salt, so it was hard to take pictures.
