Located just a short walk from the Four Seasons Resort on Pinney’s Beach, the colorful Sunshine’s Beach Bar gets its name not just from its brilliant surroundings but also from its proprietor, Llewellyn “Sunshine” Caines. A popular lunch spot with both locals and tourists, Sunshine’s offers better-than-beach-bar food—you really can’t go wrong with the barbecue ribs or the grilled lobster in garlic butter. The bar’s most famous item, however, is the seriously potent Killer Bee rum punch. Just know that one is more than enough in the hot Nevis sun.
One of the best-known establishments along Pinney’s Beach, this casual, shack-style venue has a varied drinks and food menu, an excellent location and strong, tasty cocktails (ask for the bar’s signature beverage, a rum-punch specialty called the Killer Bee). The range of dishes includes shrimp salad, conch stew and ribs as well as jerk chicken and lobster, all for reasonable prices and with generous portions—and with, of course, the beach nearby for a pre- or postprandial swim.
