PROFILE OF NEVIS
The island of Nevis was so named by Christopher Columbus in 1493 on his second voyage to the new world. The name Nevis is associated with Mount Nevis which is located in the centre of the island and rises to a height of 3,265 feet (985) meters. A mist usually covers the peak and this reminded the admiral of a snow peak in Spain, "Las Nievas" thus the name Nevis. In 1628 Anthony Hilton, an English settler in St. Kitts colonised Nevis from the mother colony. The island remained a colony of Britain until it became part of a sovereign state of St. Kitts and Nevis in September 1983.

Nevis is located 40 miles north-east of Antigua and 2 miles soth-east of St. Kitts. Its only airport is located in the north and 7 miles from the capital, Charlestown.
