- Nisbet Beach" by Paul McGehee. A beautiful sunset...the perfect time
for a stroll along Nisbet Beach on the Caribbean island of Nevis. The
neighboring island of St. Kitts can be seen off in the distance. Once
the site of a large sugar plantation, it will forever be mentioned in
the pages of history as where British Navy Captain Horatio Nelson met
the young niece of the President of Nevis, the widowed Frances "Fanny"
Nisbet. The two fell in love and were soon married at Fig Tree Church
on March 11, 1787. Nelson, as every British schoolchild knows, later
went on to be the hero of the great Battle of Trafalgar, a tremendous
victory for Britain but, sadly, it was during this battle that he was
mortally wounded, dying on October 21, 1805. Nisbet Plantation later
switched from the production of sugar to the growing and harvesting of
coconut palms, and in more recent years has been turned into a
world-class plantation resort. The Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, as it
is now known, is a popular destination for travelers looking for a stay
in a unique Caribbean property, with 5-star dining in the Great House.
It has also proven to be popular spot for couples to get married, and
to spend a honeymoon in paradise which they will never forget. You may
