Discover St Vincent & The Grenadines
Picture the classic image of what you’d envisage the Caribbean to be in all its breathtakingly-beautiful palm-fringed glory, and you’ll more than likely find it reflected in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The 32 islands that make up this enticing archipelago are scattered amongst cerulean waters and prove an irresistible draw for divers, yachting enthusiasts and island hoppers. It’s also ideal for those simply seeking powdery beaches, clear balmy waters and sunsets of pure golden perfection. Even Hollywood couldn’t resist the lure of this island nation - it’s where Pirates of the Caribbean, Curse of the Black Pearl was filmed.
Though each island in its own right can comfortably encapsulate the Caribbean idyll, there’s a distinct character in each and every one. St Vincent boasts black-sand beaches, volcanic landscapes, tumbling waterfalls, and the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere.
Union Island is the gateway to the southern Grenadines, with a bustling harbour and busy market. Mustique has been a bolthole for the rich and royal for generations, while the island of Bequia, known for its fishing and boat-building tradition, remains rustic and unchanged by the hands of time.
Visit Canouan, with its healthy tortoise population, if you’re a keen golfer and want to take in some of the best snorkelling in the region. Swimming with turtles at the Tobago Cays Marine Park is a must, and off-the-beaten-track island, Mayreau, is a popular spot for kite and wind surfing.
Or head to one of the private island resorts, Young Island, Petit St Vincent and Palm Island, for a tranquil escape.
This treasure chest of islands is easy to find if you know where to look.
