Bequia’s gentle climate makes for wonderful vacations throughout the year. Located far enough south, to lie outside the hurricane belt, it is a safe destination even in summer and early fall. An independentmodel traditional whaling boat nation within the British Commonwealth since 1979, St. Vincent and the Grenadines was alternately controlled by France and England. The local patois is living witness to this varied history.

Bequia is the largest of the Grenadine islands, at approximately seven square miles. Browse the maps below to familiarize yourself with this part of the Caribbean. Much of life on the island revolves around the sea. Boat building and whaling are traditional trades in Bequia. Though the boat building is all but gone, you can still see colorful Bequia-built sailing and fishing boats near the shore in Port Elizabeth, the main harbor of the island.

There are many things to do on Bequia. You can wile away a day at one of a dozen beaches, each stunning and each with its own unique character. The azure-blue water is always warm and inviting. The steady winds are great for sailing and windsurfing. Charter cruises by sailboat or motorboat can take you to the other Grenadine islands. If you decide to explore what is known locally as “the Mainland,” regular ferries travel to and from St. Vincent, where you can climb Mt. Souffriere, the sleeping volcano; swim under the Falls of Baleine; or hike in the rainforest of Vermont Valley.
