St Vincent & the Grenadines
St. Vincent & The Grenadines is a multi-island nation with 32 islands in total, many of which are uninhabited and
offer a unique combination of rainforest eco-adventures, spectacular scuba diving, classic Caribbean powder-white
sand beaches, luxury accommodation and amazing yachting & sailing.
The island of Bequia (pr. Bek-way) is the jewel of the
Grenadines, it is seven square miles, quiet, relaxed, and has
all the charm of the old Caribbean. Friendly people and
natural beauty make Bequia a very special place. If you are
looking for the "real" Caribbean Island experience,
somewhere there is no fast food outlets and not the typical
tourist trap, this is the Island for you.
Known for years by sailors, it is now being discovered by
travelers seeking a natural place to relax and unwind.
Beautiful white coral sand beaches, crystal clear waters and
spectacular underwater life, ideal for snorkeling and diving,
characterize Bequia and the Grenadines.
From Bequia you can sail to another beautiful Grenadine
Caribbean Island or visit St. Vincent which is only 1 hour
away on the local ferry.
St. Vincent is a lush volcanic island of steep mountain
ridges, valleys and waterfalls and is relatively undiscovered.
The rugged eastern side of the island is lined with cliffs,
rocky shores and beautiful black sand beaches.
There is something here for everyone - from sailing and
dolphin-watching, to hiking the nature trails and swimming
in the waterfalls. You can climb to the top of an active
volcano or explore the fascinating underwater gardens.
On the northern outskirts of the capital Kingstown, are the
Botanical Gardens. Peaceful, lush, green and colourful, the
gardens are home to a wealth of tropical plants, flowers,
trees and birds.They are one of the oldest of their kind in
the western hemisphere
