Nippes (Haitian Creole: Nip) is one of the ten departments (the highest-level political subdivisions) of Haiti. It is the most recently-created department, having been split from Grand'Anse in 2003.[3] The capital of the department is Miragoâne.

Administrative divisions[edit]

The department of Nippes is subdivided into three arrondissements (districts), which are further subdivided into eleven communes (the equivalent of a city or municipality).
