The following is a release from the Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) regarding the Mango Festival.
Once home to a vibrant sugar trade, the island of Nevis is now known for generating something even sweeter – mangoes.
Following the shuttering of the last sugar mills in the 1930s, this picture-perfect paradise turned its focus to tourism.
Asserting a vigilant approach to development, however, Nevis has remained true to its roots. Here, visitors can savour the essence of barefoot luxury and an authentic island lifestyle, not found elsewhere in the Caribbean.
