GO TO THE BEACH
Nevis: A jewel of an island, Nevis feels like the old Caribbean. With a population of 11,000, the island is big enough to support upmarket hotels and restaurants, but small enough to have escaped traffic jams, casinos and cruise ship crowds. The lush rainforest affords easy and difficult trails, and sandy beaches front typically calm waters. Those enamored with Alexander Hamilton can visit his birthplace and a small museum dedicated to him.
The deal: Fly from Newark (EWR) to sister island St. Kitts, a short ferry ride from Nevis, on United Airlines and receive a $300 automatic discount on every ticket. You must use promo code SKB300 and book no later than May 27, 2017, for travel by July 8, 2017. Several island properties offer deals as well.
At the Four Seasons Nevis: Stay in a villa at 40 percent off the regular rates for a minimum of three nights, or choose the Nevis My Way package to receive a daily $100 resort credit as well as daily breakfast for two adults with a minimum four-night stay. Kids five and younger eat free from the kids’ menu and ages 3 through 9 enjoy the complimentary Kids For All Seasons club. Conditions and restrictions apply.
