Love island in the Caribbean

SERENE: Lovers Beach offers the perfect landscape for a romantic getaway

THE CARIBBEAN island of Nevis, voted The Most Romantic Island in The Caribbean by the Caribbean Journal last year, is preparing to welcome couples from all over the world this Valentine’s Day to revel and rekindle their romance under the warm sun and palm trees.

The small island, part of the Leeward chain in the West Indies, remains largely unchanged by the growing tourism demands of the Caribbean. The island reflects the way life used to be, with pristine beaches, lush greenery and beautiful surroundings, making it the perfect romantic escape.

The golden beaches have provided many celebrity A-listers – including Beyonce and Jay-Z – with a romantic, and most importantly a private escape. Thanks to the island’s strong royal connection – Prince Harry first visited Nevis with his mother, Diana Princess of Wales and most recently released baby turtles into the sea on Lovers Beach – the idyllic island will be a highly sought out destination.

“We are extremely proud to continue welcoming romance travellers and couples from all over the world,” says Nevis Tourism Authority CEO Greg Phillips. “People planning their vacations are spoilt for choice by the luxury found across our wonderful island.”

With the number of activities on offer, it’s easy to see how couples can maximise the romance while on the island.

LEAVE A MARK

The beautiful Botanical Gardens make an ideal place for a morning stroll. Home to lily ponds, fountains and more than 100 species of palm trees, couples can even carve their names into the leaves of the Autograph or Pitch Apple Tree.

GET AWAY FROM IT ALL

• Book a stay at the Golden Rock Inn and stay in the unique sugar mill honeymoon suite.
• Visit Paradise Beach, where you and your partner will experience total privacy.
• Or visit Lovers Beach, one of the most secluded spots in the world, offers enchanting sunset views.

WINE AND DINE

• Take part in the Four Seasons Dive and Dine and Spa under the star where you can go diving with a chef to catch your own lobster, which will be cooked to perfection while you take in the views.
• Visit the 300-year-old mill at Montpelier Plantation for the ultimate romantic experience.

Nevis also offers couples the chance to experience clear blue water and spot local marine life, such as the famous wild sea turtles which make their home off the coast of Shitten Bay.

For visitors wishing to step back in time, a trip to Alexander Hamilton’s childhood home on Nevis allows guests to explore the American Founding Father’s story. The island is ready to provide couples with the ingredients for the most romantic Valentine’s Day escape.
