The tropical treasures of St Vincent and the Grenadines are found near St Lucia and Grenada, part of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, in the Caribbean Sea. This unspoiled paradise of 32 islands includes Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Petit St Vincent, Tobago Cays, Union Island and Palm Island, each with their own unique character and magnificent beaches to discover. Thanks to its beautiful beaches and laid-back atmosphere, St Vincent and the Grenadines is an idyllic venue for a perfect island wedding or romantic honeymoon retreat – and a paradise island home. By Caribbean standards, St Vincent and the Grenadines is an undiscovered gem, as the island chain is refreshingly free of big, crowded resorts and the trappings of rampant tourist developments. As most of the population lives on the largest and most developed island, St Vincent, the smaller islands are sparsely inhabited and mainly unspoiled.
The varied topography of the island chain enables an exciting array of adventures, from sailing and scuba diving to hiking and horse riding on the beach, as well as several worth-while golf courses. St Vincent also offers lush rainforest, making eco-retreats and jungle adventures increasingly popular.
The island nation has a French and British colonial history; Carib Indians fought off European settlement on St Vincent until the 18th century, after which it was subjected to many years of colonial rule and slavery. On 27 October 1979, it became the last of the Windward Islands to finally gain independence. Since then, this lovely island nation has survived largely on its natural bounty, with agriculture the backbone of the country's economy, and tourism attracting a steady stream of foreign admirers.
The islands have been carefully developed to prevent overcrowding so that its exclusive appeal and peaceful, relaxed and elegant atmosphere are well maintained.

There is a fair bit to see around Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) particularly on the ‘mainland’ as the island of St. Vincent itself is known. From the capital, Kingstown (not to be confused with Jamaica’s Kingston) there is much to see, do and explore. From there, you can venture further afield to explore the island’s coastlines, where there are simple local villages (also ports on the Caribbean side) and waterfalls, mountains and incredibly fertile forest inland. There are plenty of tour companies that organise tours of these places, though it is also possible to go with a taxi driver, many of whom know the history quite well and the places to see, as well as enjoy a sea tour of the Grenadines.Read More
