Another spectacular beach at the tip of the Southeast Peninsula embraces the shore of Banana Bay. This is the epitome of Caribbean perfection. Soft white sand. Gentle lapping waves. Transparent, warm and shallow water with glistening shades of blue and green. Equally impressive is the view. In the background is Nevis. This sister island of Saint Kitts is small – measuring only 36 square miles – with less than 12,000 residents. The name comes from a Spanish acronym meaning Our Lady of the Snows. You can access Nevis aboard the Sea Bridge ferry. Six daily trips make the three-mile journey between the islands. The departure point on Saint Kitts is at the end of the Southeast Peninsula facing Majors Bay.
