The most popular ride, beach and trail, begins with a walk past Ft. Ashby, the first fort on the island built in 1650, leading you to one of the many secluded beaches on Nevis. Along the way, you will pass Nelson’s Spring, a beautiful lagoon where clipper ships once filled up with fresh drinking water.
