Sporting and leisure facilities on Nevis include golfing at the Nevis Golf Club and the larger 18 hole golf course at the Four Seasons Hotel; a P.A.D.I. dive school and shop on Oualie Beach; windsurfing, sunfishsailing and mountain bike hire, also on Oualie Beach; horseriding at the Nevis Equestrian Centre at Clifton Estate; organised walks and hikes with Top to Bottom (it is even possible to join a nocturnal stargazing walk!); enjoying the beautiful horticulture of the Botanic Gardens of Nevis at Montpelier Estate; exploring the historic sites of the island such as the deserted, but strangely almost intact sugar processing works at the New River Estate, and then of course there is all the casual walking, hiking, swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing that anyone could possibly wish for!

Nevis is very much quieter and less tourist dominated than other larger islands in the Caribbean. It therefore does not have a particularly organised nightlife. No clubs, no discoteques, no casinos, no themed bars or restuarants. What it does have are simple bars and impromptu party nights with islanders and visitors all happily mixing together. Dining out can be as varied as possible. From local dishes made by vendors and stall holders by the harbour, courtyard cafes, beachside restaurants and gourmet dining at the plantation house restaurants.
