When most people think of the Caribbean
, clichéd images of never-ending white sandy beaches, vivacious cocktails accompanied by mini umbrellas, villas overlooking the flawless ocean, and year round tropical sun are what often come to mind. Cades Bay of Nevis
has so much more to offer than these stereotypical metaphors.

and Nevis and is located on the smaller of the two islands, Nevis. Cades Bay is a wonderful place to book your next travel accommodation. Vacation rental lodging such as condo rentals and villa rentals are modern and luxurious

when Sephardic Jews were expelled from Brazil.

. Boats and local captains can be hired on a daily or weekly basis. It is not uncommon to find yourself sailing amongst Hollywood celebrities, who too enjoy the tranquility of St. Kitts and Nevis.
Vibrant coral reefs, rocky coastlines, and flourishing rainforests
have made St. Kitts and Nevis one of the finest eco-tourism destinations. Eco-Tours Nevis, Herbert Heights, and Sunrise Tours are a few companies that offer guided hikes with a professional staff. You will have the chance to wander up the slopes of Nevis Peak which is encircled by one of the world’s only cloud forest.
