2 Tobago Cays, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
The Tobago Cays are an archipelago located in the southern Grenadines,
famous for five small uninhabited islands: Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau,
Baradal, Petit Tobac and Jamesby. The main attraction here is the Tobago
Cays Marine Park, a national park and wildlife reserve. Renowned for its
massive 1,400-acre lagoon, the park is surrounded by the vivid horseshoeshaped reef. This is an idyllic area to enjoy sand-bottomed and crystal-clear waters teeming with colourful fish and turtles.
3 Port Elizabeth & Bequia Island
The second-largest in the Grenadines Island chain, and Bequia's main port, is
Port Elizabeth. It is a tranquil and quiet destination built along a picturesque
little bay with forested hills behind. The most popular sights in town are the
open-air market, which gives a very 18th-century feel, as well as the Belmont
Walkway known for the town’s best shops and restaurants along Admiralty
4 Kingstown & Saint Vincent Island
Kingstown is a small capital but offers a big appeal for visitors. It is wrapped
around the bay on the south-western coast of St. Vincent. The busy harbour
provides the town with a vibrant ambience and the waterfront offers a
variety of possibilities for shopping, dining, and water sports. St. George's
Anglican Cathedral, one of the town’s highlights, was built in 1820 and is an
outstanding example of Georgian architecture.
5 Chatham Bay & Union Island
Today, you’ll explore one of the wildest and most pristine parts of Union
Island – Chatham Bay. It welcomes visitors with its picture-perfect turquoise
waters and a white-sand beach surrounded by green hills. The coastline
located north of the bay is also known for snorkelling. Many species can be
observed in its clear waters (porcupinefish, Moray eels, angelfish), and one
can even see lobsters, which seem to enjoy inhabiting the bay’s rocky seabed.
6 Mayreau Island
Mayreau is the smallest of the Grenadines’ uninhabited islands, with a surface
area of only 4 square kilometres (1.5 square miles). The population of Mayreau
is no more than 250 people who live in the village on the island’s highest hill,
Station Hill. The charming little church and community centre at the top of
the hill provide spectacular views over the islands. On a clear day, one can see
both Grenada and St. Vincent, as well as other nearby islands, showcasing the
pretty colours of the reefs and waters around the Tobago Cays. Today you
will enjoy a barbeque on shore together with your fellow travellers.
7 Hillsborough, Carriacou Island, Grenada
The small, rural island of Carriacou boasts many fine beaches and gentle
hills for one to discover. There are about 12,000 inhabitants on the island
nowadays – as well as a large number of goats grazing around islands flora:
cacti, acacia and bougainvillea. Hillsborough is not as crowded with tourists
as other destinations in the Caribbean despite the friendly locals and its
natural harbour. This allows you to enjoy the quiet beaches and a more
peaceful discovery of the island.
