|Unlke many other Caribbean islands where the highlights involve sea and sand, which Nevis has in abundance, Nevis has also been blessed with a tropical interior that offers visitors an opportunity to get close to nature and its beauty. This is especially evident at the Nevis Botanical Gardens, which offers up a new breathtaking bloom at every turn.Nestled against the dramatic backdrop of Mount Nevis, the island’s dormant volcano, the Botanical Gardens are a stone’s throw away from where a young Admiral Horatio Nelson married Fanny Nisbet in 1787. The gardens, themselves, are an ideal spot for romance. Stroll at your leisure through tropical flowering trees and shrubs from around the world situated on five acres, and enjoy cascading water features, fountains and beautiful sculptures. Orchid trees, bromeliads, water lily ponds, and the vibrant flambouyant (Poinciana is the official name) – Nevis’s national flower – will delight your senses, as will the hundreds of other species found here.The Botanical Gardens is an oasis where you may relax and rejuvenate. And when you get a bit hungry, you can enjoy the Oasis in the Garden Restaurant, where you’ll find exceptional Thai cuisine. And don’t forget to ask for the Purple Rain, their signature cocktail! There’s also an art gallery and a gift shop to round out your experience.You may learn more at www.botanicalgardennevis.com.
