Get a Great Deal On Flights to Nevis
Lovely, luscious Nevis is like one big botanical garden. Shouldering out of the Caribbean Sea, it climbs to cloud-splintering Nevis Peak at just shy of 1,000 metres up. Plumes of palms and ferns and flamboyant trees mingle with magenta-topped orchids within, jostling for space in the undergrowth. You can hike trails with a chance to see the black-faced vervet monkey or emerald-haired hummingbirds.
Along the coast discover the cute colonial capital of Charlestown, where enthralling museums tell tales of pre-Columbian island tribes and English settlers. Explore stretches of sand like Pinneys Beach and Oualie, which edge out of the sea vines to a sand-bottomed sea of sky-blue water. Book your flights to Nevis today to get a local welcome to this off-the-beaten-track Caribbean island.

Things You Need To Know About Flights To Nevis
There’s no such thing as a direct flight to Nevis from the UK but its still easy enough to get to. Flight time from the UK to St Kitts is approximately 9 hours and 50 minutes with one brief stop.
From St Kitts take a local 15 minute flight to Nevis or if you prefer you can take a 45 minute ferry ride. Carriers like Air France, Virgin Atlantic and BA are often go-to choices for the long-haul section of the ride, while a number of local short-haulers can pitch in the 15-minute hop across from Kitts. Many people choose to stay in St Kitts for part of their holiday and in Nevis for the rest.
Things are nice and simple for UK travellers looking to explore the hibiscus-strewn forests of St Kitts and Nevis. No visa is required; only the usual six-month period of validity on your passport. If you do touch down at the small Vance W. Amory International Airport on the north side of the island, instead of coming in by ferry across the Narrows strait, a smattering of car hire outlets around the terminal building can get you on the road and cruising down to Charlestown in a jiffy – the drive takes around just 20 minutes.
Best Time to Visit Nevis

Hotels tend to be cheaper then, things are still hot, and the hiking paths are teeming with wildlife. You’ll just need to be wary of increasing rainfall as you approach August and September, which is when the Atlantic throws hurricanes and storms in Nevis’s general direction.
