The quiet village of New Castle very much reflects the culture of St. Kitts and Nevis, a friendly and mellow culture which revolves around ‘limin’, which means hanging out and talking. Partaking in watersports, visiting the spa and meeting locals are great things to do here. Nevis is a small island and there is much to explore if you go a little further afield, including:
- Cottle Church, 4 min drive (2km)
- Lover’s Beach, 12 min walk (950m)
- Charlestown, 15 min drive (9km)
- Nevis Peak, 16 min (8km)
Oualie Beach Resort is located in the village of New Castle on the island of Nevis in St. Kitts and Nevis. This warm and welcoming Caribbean island enjoys a year-round tropical climate and differs from the island of St. Kitts in that much of it is undeveloped, allowing guests to fully appreciate its beautiful natural scenery which includes mountains, beaches and glistening ocean.

My husband and I recently had the good fortune of staying at this resort. We have toured the Caribbean for 17 years and this is one of the most peaceful, lovely places we have stayed. The people here are so friendly and welcoming.

"Amazing place to visit."
Amazing place to visit. In the daytime the safest place to swim and a beautiful beach, pop in the bar for refreshment. Tuesdays is live band night and always great to listen, have a dance and join in. Love the place!! 👍

"Room had a good view of the sea"
When I was there it was very quiet sometimes the only people on the beach. At breakfast, lunch and dinner the food was very nice and well cooked.
