The island rapidly became an important center for sugar farming, and even though no sugar cane is grown commercially on Nevis now, the island still has a primarily agrarian feel and culture. This means that sometimes Nevisians may not seem as "polished" as people might appear to be in some other destinations, but the small farming that still exists here certainly means that the produce on Nevis is excellent, but it also means that on this island you will meet kind, honest, straightforward people, who are dignified and polite. Some may be shy, but they are friendly and kind beneath that shyness, and they are uncorrupted by the perils of big-city living. The literacy rate on Nevis, by the way, is one of the highest in the world.
The people of Nevis are very religious: the island has over 53 churchs, and Christmas and Easter are big holidays here, which are celebrated with not only the expected things, such as traditional Christmas lights, but also with horse racing and kite contests.
