The beaches have white sand and plenty of bars and resturants.
Ziggys place on the beach in Frieget Bay, is one of the best Resturant/Bars, postioned about 50 ft from the water. The water is warm and blue. There is also Turtle Beach, a short distance from Freiget Bay. Some of the sites to see is Brimstone Hill, an old fort build by slave labor when the Brittish and French occupied the island. The island is approximately 65 miles in diameter with 34,000 residents. The rain forrest walk is great if you like to walk and do a little climbing. The island has four large resorts on it with several smaller ones. Plenty of resturants but no Wal-Mart for those who like to shop. All the shops are specialty shops with only one or two types of goods (plastic, lumber, clothes, electronics). The cab drivers are great and are really reasonable on their fares. The two I had contact with the most was Trevone of Trevones taxi service and Roy's taxi service. It is advisable to take a taxi instead of renting a car. They drive on the opposite side of the street as Americans do. The currency is US dollars or EC's (Eastern Carribean dollars) which is 2.69 to one US dollars. The temperature is a constant 85 degrees and it rains one a day for five to fifteen minutes , that is usually the extent of the rain. Nevis is across the bay with access by Ferry.
