The arcing 32 islands and cays that make up St Vincent and the Grenadines are ideal candidates for Robinson-Crusoe-style escapism. Our Caribbean specialists have explored the archipelago, selecting the islands and hotels that provide the best experiences the country has to offer.
St Vincent itself is a mountainous island of sweeping bays and wooded valleys, where the village-like capital, Kingstown, is a collection of cobbled streets and 19th-century architecture. For the best views, hike up to the volcanic caldera of La Soufrière. Bequia is St Vincent’s little-visited neighbour, where you’re likely to have stretches of its flaxen sand to yourself: aside from the occasional hawksbill turtle. The tiny Palm Island and Petite St Vincent offer private island retreats of laid-back seclusion. Wherever you choose to stay, one of the best places to visit is Tobago Cays, a protected marine park with some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean.
