One of the best beaches in the Caribbean, is Pinney's beach.
It has soft golden sand, calm water, and shaded by tall palm trees.
There are nice views of St.Kitts from here.
The waters are protected by a reef making them good for snorkeling and swimming.
While you are at the Golden Rock Estate, pick up one of their self guide maps and take a hike.
There is a nice easy trail into the rainforest from the estate.
You will see monkeys, birds, and lizards. There are giant trees all around, some have coconuts, bananas, papayas, and breadfruit hanging on them. If it is mango season watch out for the monkeys throwing them.
The Golden Rock Estate has 12 stone plantation buildings that were built in the 1800's. It also has a restored sugar mill where you can stay. The sugar mill is very popular with honeymooners. The estate is a great place to see monkeys that live wild on the grounds and there are also many beautiful birds here.
There are 16 guest rooms scattered about in stone cottages. The rooms have four-poster beds made of bamboo.
There is a swimming pool, plus free shuttles to the beach.

Heading south on the main island road from Charlestown, one first reaches Montpelier Plantation Inn, very British in style and demeanor. This elegant hotel was created from the ruins of the Montpelier Plantation.
Two main buildings contain the great room, bar, library/card room, and a sunny breakfast room.
Brick walkways wind through tropical gardens and there is a nice pool with a hand painted privacy screen and mountain views.

This property is now owned by the Nevis Island Government.
