Where to stay in St Vincent and the Grenadines

A bit about St Vincent and the Grenadines

St Vincent and the Grenadines is a truly idyllic Caribbean destination. It is made up of 32 cays and islands, most of which are uninhabited or home to just a small community. In fact, many of these isles are only accessible by boat, preserving their remote and exotic charms intact.

There are some wonderful all inclusive resorts in St Vincent and the Grenadines, ensuring you can stay in the lap of luxury while discovering all that these pretty islands have to offer. If you're after a lively base for your holiday, St Vincent is your best bet, while some of the islands in the Grenadines archipelago are the epitome of paradise - barefoot luxury at its very best and sheer seclusion.

As you would probably expect, the beaches are absolutely breathtaking and among the main attractions of a holiday here. Powdery soft white sand is lapped by foaming turquoise waves and backed by the verdant green of the jungle - everything you need for an exotic island retreat.

St Vincent: ideal for a varied holiday

St Vincent is the largest and most populated of the islands here, although it's busy by Caribbean standards, which still means it's relatively laidback. Kingstown is the capital and biggest town on the isle. While many travellers choose to head straight to the Grenadines for some rest and relaxation, it's worth allowing a day or two to discover what Kingstown has to offer.

Also called the City of Arches, Kingstown's centre is lovely, with its cobbled streets, pretty arches and impressive churches. Fort Charlotte is one of its most historic buildings, with this enclave overlooking the bay and providing a constant reminder of St Vincent's colonial heritage.

Away from Kingstown there is a lot to discover. Head to St Vincent's interior and you'll be greeted by vibrant forests and wonderful hiking trails - the trek to the top of La Soufriere Volcano is a particular favourite. There are also some stunning beaches on the island's coast, including the black-sand Buccament Bay, the secluded Cumberland Bay, and Owia Bay, which is characterised by its natural rockpools.

Discover the natural beauty of the Grenadines

As they are virtually uninhabited, the Grenadines are a real contrast to the hustle and bustle of St Vincent. These stunning islands are emerald gems in the clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, with little development meaning you can enjoy desert island life at its most authentic.

Bequia is one of the most popular of the Grenadine islands, with its white-sand beaches, excellent hotels and traditional way of life all enhancing its appeal to all kinds of travellers. Delve into Bequia's heritage by learning about its model boat building industry, its hand-harpooning fishermen and its ties to British colonial forces.

Scuba diving and snorkelling are both popular pastimes around Bequia's - and the wider Grenadines' - coast, with colourful coral reefs and a host of fascinating marine life waiting to be discovered just beneath the surface.

To see more than just one of the Grenadine islands, go on a sailing trip that will allow you to drop anchor off shore of several of the isolated cays and islets that make up the archipelago - the perfect way to find your own deserted stretch of sand.

Palm Island for ultimate luxury

Palm Island is home to one of the Grenadines' most luxurious resorts, the aptly named Palm Island Resort Grenadines, which has just 43 rooms and villas sprawled along a 135-acre isle. This is really the epitome of what exploring the Caribbean is all about - unspoilt natural landscapes from the pristine beaches to the thriving jungle, as well as high-end accommodation where you can feel totally pampered and relaxed.

The accommodation on Palm Island has been designed to blend in with the surroundings, so it really does feel like a retreat into the Caribbean's most striking natural landscapes. Seclusion and relaxation are what Palm Island is renowned for, providing guests with everything they need for an incredible and memorable getaway.

As well as exploring Palm Island's charms at your leisure, you can also take a boat trip to the nearby Tobago Cays, another wonderful Caribbean gem that's well worth visiting during your holiday in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
