The natural beauty of St Vincent and the Grenadines is unparalleled
There are 32 islands and cays that make up St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). 9 of these islands are inhabited, including the mainland St. Vincent along with the Grenadines islands: Young Island, Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Union Island, Mayreau, Petit St Vincent and Palm Island.
The stunning Tobago Cays Marine Park is also located in the Grenadines. Offering the classic Caribbean white sand beaches, coconut palm trees and deliciously warm weather all year round and the perfect trade winds, it’s no wonder it is becoming a true hot spot for sailors and adventurers alike.
St Vincent lies about 80 miles west of Barbados and about 25 miles south of St Lucia. It’s at the lower end of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, roughly halfway between Antigua and Venezuela. The island has spectacular mountain scenery, with dramatic gorges and precipices, and thick, lush rain forest. Originally, the island was inhabited by Carib Indians who called it “Hairoun” – “Home of the Blessed”.
The Northern end of the island is dominated by Soufriere, a 3,000 foot active volcano which last erupted on Friday 13th April 1979. It was the third eruption of this century but the residents were evacuated in time and there were no casualties.
St Vincent is a most beautiful island, unspoiled and with almost theatrical scenery. The Botanical Gardens are the oldest in the Western Hemisphere and it was here that Captain Bligh brought the breadfruit after the mutiny on the Bounty incident. A direct descendant of the original tree is on display in the Botanical Gardens, which are the oldest in the Western Hemisphere.
