St Vincent & The Grenadines Destination

The 32 magical islands of St Vincent & The Grenadines are the photos in your coffee table travel book brought to life, a cluster of barefoot hideaways surrounded by sugar white sands, calm azure seas and natural beauty. You’ll pinch yourself more than once as you fly over the jewel-hued waters towards secluded beaches, unspoiled rainforest and glamorous resorts. This is the place to come for a truly special holiday.

Though the resorts are plush, the atmosphere is meltingly informal, so kick off your shoes, soften your hard worked soul and order Champagne on ice. Unparelleled serenity comes in the form of oversized bathtubs, huge decked terraces, refreshing swimming pools, private jetties and panoramic sea views. Leaving the comfort of your resort may seem a struggle, and days can go by where you do nothing but sink into a sun lounger, occasionally dipping your toes in the warm Caribbean waters. But that’s not to say that there isn’t plenty to do if you want to explore your surroundings a little more...

Plunge into cobalt waters to snorkel, scuba dive, Hobie Cat sail, windsurf and paddleboard, or take a power boat to the Tobago Cays and swim with hawksbill turtles. Rock your racquet on a tennis court, ride horseback along the shoreline and body surf in the gentle Caribbean swell. Swing a club on Jim Fazio’s award-winning Canouan golf course, climb the active volcano of La Soufrière on St Vincent, enjoy a candlelit dinner under Palm Island’s bamboo pergola, and on Petit St Vincent succumb to a signature treatment at one of the Hillside Spa’s open-air rooms. The private island of Mustique was once so exclusive that anyone coming in had to be vetted beforehand, and while today it’s rather more accessible, it's still a preferred hideaway of royalty and celebrities, and you may even see a rock star or two hosting a glamorous beachfront picnic.

Island dining is mainly water’s edge and exquisite, a blend of locally caught seafood and Caribbean infused cuisine, barefoot barbecues, private dining with a personal chef, or cocktails and fire red sunsets at a laid back beach bar. We recommend L'Auberge des Grenadines on the waterfront at Admiralty Bay in Bequia, Basil's Bar and Firefly on Mustique, and The Sapodilla Room at Grenadine House in St Vincent for elegant fine dining with wonderful views over Kingstown.

Climb Soufrière Volcano

You may not have expected to find a 4,000 ft high active volcano on St Vincent, but the challenging climb to the top is well worth the effort as the views from the summit are spectacular. The three mile hike will take you through rainforest, bamboo groves and cloud forest before you reach the volcanic rock and ash-strewn rim of the huge, mile-wide crater.

Dark View Falls

If climbing a volcano isn’t for you, take a trip to the Dark View Falls which are situated at the southern foot of the Soufrière volcano. Set amongst tropical bamboo forest, these two beautiful waterfalls cascade down over the lava rocks. The lower falls can be easily reached via a bamboo bridge that spans the river, followed by a short trail through a shady grove where you will enjoy the refreshing spray from the falls. If you want to work a bit harder for your reward, the steeper trail climbs to the higher falls where there is a large pool, perfect for a cooling swim.

Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary

If you’re not staying on Bequia, you should definitely try to visit this delightful little island. It has lots of charm and some good local restaurants, and the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary is a must. Here you can view the endangered hawksbill turtle hatchlings and learn about their conservation. A former seaman has dedicated his life to raising turtles from eggs deposited on nearby beaches and has strived to increase their survival rate by feeding and protecting them through their most vulnerable time, before safely releasing them back into the sea. 

Tobago Cays

No visit to St Vincent & The Grenadines is complete without a sailing trip to the Tobago Cays. These five tiny, uninhabited islands boast some of the best sailing waters in the Caribbean due to the spectacular horseshoe reef which creates a calm, crystalline lagoon. The lagoon is a National Marine Park and a playground for green turtles which come to feed on the abundant seagrass. A catamaran tour through these stunning cays allows plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling and turtle watching.
