Saint Vincent & the Grenadines

32 immaculate and exclusive islands

St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a group of 32 gorgeous Caribbean islands which lie South of St Lucia and to the West of Barbados. This is a chic and sophisticated holiday destination for discerning travellers. Guests to St. Vincent and the Grenadines will find a tropical paradise where they can enjoy a relaxing break with fantastic yachting and scuba diving opportunities along with a superb natural environment.

There’s the main island of St. Vincent with it’s capital of Kingstown and a chain of smaller islands including the idyllic retreat of Mustique; a notorious celebrity hideaway.

St. Vincent itself is often passed through enroute to one of the other islands. It’s the largest of the islands and has verdant forests, banana plantations and sandy beaches. Kingstown is filled with charming colonial buildings. You can take a walk through the cobbled streets and tour historic Fort Charlotte or travel to the north of the island and challenge yourself to the invigorating hike up the active La Soufriere volcano. Don’t miss the beautiful botanic gardens and you should definitely visit the Dark View Waterfalls.

Bequia is the northernmost island of the Grenadines and it has real unspoilt charm and a relaxed way of life. Canouan is a draw for golf enthusiasts as it boasts an 18-hole championship golf course. This tiny island also has picture-perfect beaches and a wonderful barrier reef

You don’t have to confine yourself to one spot when you take a trip here. You could enjoy a holiday to one or more of the islands as well as a stay in St. Lucia, Grenada or Barbados so ask us about twin or multi-centre holiday options.
