We went with our adult children to this beach and it was wonderful. Take a taxi for about $7 each but the view is great. Watch out for the monkeys. They jump on you and the guy charges to take picture with your own phone

Beautiful beach with amazing views of Nevis. The water is calm and crystal clear. They rent chairs and umbrellas and there's even a small stand that makes burgers fresh to order. This was the highlight of our day! Just down the beach you can rent...More

If you want to tour , the Brimstone Fortress was interesting. We were there during the offseason so not everything was open. Carambola is the most beautiful beach on the island . It does cost to use it for the day.
