A new twist on the Caribbean beach bar comes to Pinney’s Beach
For a small island, Nevis certainly has its share of beach bars. The island’s most popular strand, Pinney’s Beach, offers up four miles of golden sands lined with an eclectic collection of oceanfront watering holes. Some are known for their signature drinks, while others gain notoriety for their rustic lean-to and thatched roofed atmosphere. Recently, the Four Seasons introduced a new twist on these social venues.
The Kastawey Beach Bar delivers a unique look and a vibe that is both inviting and chill. The décor showcases the bright colors of the Caribbean, with a hand crafted and brightly painted Nevisian fishing boat serving as the marquis for passers by. Beachcombers will stumble upon the spot when they walk down the beach from the busy lineup of bars at the other end of the Pinney’s strip.
Kastawey delivers a rustic, relaxed, laid back and welcoming feel, but with the essence of the Four Seasons guest experience sprinkled on top. It’s the perfect spot for a long lunch or a conversation and sundowners. Guests sit at teak tables, some under the shade of umbrellas, with direct views of the waves lapping the shoreline. For an even closer look at the sea, chair hammocks and chaises are right on the sand with just steps to the water.
For an afternoon snack or lunch try the Kastawey Roll—a lobster, fish, mango roll that comes in a bento box. Other choices include burgers, jerk chicken, wraps and salads. The signature drink, the Kastawey Smash is a blend of rums with tamarind and pineapple juices and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Two of them will send you looking for a chaise for an afternoon nap.
