Exploring Nevis Off The Beaten Path with Funky Monkey Tours
There’s so much to see and explore on Nevis, and much that you can’t see from the road. This is where local tour operator Funky Monkey Tours & Rentals provides one option for exploring the island as an individual or group.
Ranked #1 on Tripadvisor for Tours, and celebrating over 10 years in business, Funky Monkey Tours offer a different – some would say fun – way to explore everything Nevis has to offer. With Funky Monkey Tours, you’ll be riding in a Polaris open-air ATV where you can visit all of the beaches and back roads of Nevis and catch a glimpse of historic sites, savannahs, rainforest, and enchanting wildlife like Green Vervet monkeys or wild donkeys that are part of magical Nevis. Plus, you can do so comfortably, sipping on a Ting, ice cold water, or even a local Carib beer.
The 3.5-hour tour will take in landmarks like the architecturally splendid Sr. Paul’s Anglican Church and School that was a center of education for former slaves (circa 1689), and Cottle Church, built by John Cottle who was once the President of Nevis and a planter in 1824. This was the only church in the Caribbean where slaves and master worshiped together. A very lenient slave owner, Cottle created this Anglican Church, which was never consecrated since it was illegal at time for slaves to worship.
You may also stop at plantation resorts like Golden Rock with its breathtaking tropical gardens and unique artistic architecture, or the gingerbread cottages of Hermitage Inn whose Great Room is the oldest wooden structure in the Caribbean. Here, you may want to sample a Hermitage Rum Punch, considered the best on the island and enjoyed by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall on her recent visit to Nevis.
There will be lots of stops along the way for interesting views and fun island stories and you’ll get a special glimpse of this island paradise.
