St. Vincent and the Grenadines
The Ideal Trip Recommends: Bequia
If you are looking for an idyllic Caribbean destination, you must consider the island of Bequia (pronounced Bek-way). This tiny island in the country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines has remained relatively untouched by tourism due to its remote nature. With only 5,000 inhabitants on seven square miles of island, the setting is decidedly informal. Relaxation is the number one activity on the island. Admiralty Bay, one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the Caribbean, is a major draw for yachts and sailboats. People come here to escape the throngs of tourists elsewhere and settle in to a hammock outside the beach bar. Bequia is a true hidden Caribbean gem and an off-the-beaten-path destination that will have you dreaming of quiet beaches, clear blue waters, and tall palm trees swaying in the warm breeze.
