Bequia is a small, laid-back, charming, yet vital island – one of the chain of islands that make up the nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  Most people arrive by boat, either on a yacht or via the Bequia Express ferry, which offers frequent service from Kingstown, St. Vincent. Travel time is roughly an hour.

To me, Bequia is old-school Caribbean – and I love that.  For a small island, there are a surprising number of things to do. There are great accommodation options, decent restaurants, and a number of funky beach (and even floating) bars. It is also a great base for exploring the Grenadines. Something that, if you make it to Bequia, you really should do. You will find plenty of options available.
