After an unforgettable afternoon at Lover’s Beach, we decided to explore more of the island. In Nevis, it is really easy to rent a jeep, however first you must obtain a Nevisian driver’s license, which only costs $25 and requires very little paperwork. Before you know it, you will be cruising around like a local! There is no need to worry about getting lost, as there is only one road.
We had time for one more stop and decided upon Herbert’s Beach, since we were told that we could go snorkeling there. It was the perfect place to test out my husband’s new GoPro. This gorgeous white sand beach, which we had all to ourselves, is set against a backdrop of coconut palms and Saint Kitts.
We did not think the day could get any better, but it certainly did! The property that we were staying at, Nisbet Plantation Beach Resort, has a BBQ every Thursday night and there was no way we were going to miss it after hearing from both locals and guests how amazing it is. At sunset, we walked down to the beach and were immediately greeted with some delicious rum punch and hors d’oeuvres.
Before dinner began, we took a look at the crafts made by local artisans that are sold at every BBQ. We found the perfect souvenir to take home with us: a wooden monkey holding a coconut. My husband and I adore monkeys and one of our favorite things about Nevis are the wild monkeys that roam the island.
The dinner, which was buffet-style, consisted of a gigantic selection of hot and cold dishes, although the main attraction were the different meats and seafood being cooked right in front of everyone. The smell of the food and the laughter in the air was intoxicating. Once we were fully satiated, we headed back to the beach for some dancing underneath the stars to a Caribbean steal drum band. My husband and I were the last to leave the dance floor and if it was up to us, the night would have never ended.
