St Vincent

St Vincent and the Grenadines are part of the Caribbean islands known as the Windward Islands. They are 24 miles south of St Lucia with Barbados 100 miles to their east. It is the largest island making up the area known as the Windward Islands, and the Grenadines actually fan 45 miles southwest from St Vincent as if they were the tail of a kite.  

St Vincent actually has an active volcano on the northern end of the island, with the entire island measuring only 18 miles long by 11 miles wide. It stays at a wonderful average of 81ºF all year round with November to February being the coldest months of the year. May to October is the island’s rainy season and St Vincent sees an average rainfall of 80 inches on the coast and up to 150 inches inland.

You have a wide variety of choice for accommodation on the island depending on what your particular tastes may be. You can find hotels galore all over St Vincent as well as apartments, guesthouses, resorts, and even self-catering facilities. It is very easy to find what you like ahead of time when you book your trip.  

What are you interested in doing or seeing while you are in St Vincent? There is plenty to please the tastes of all visitors. The Kingstown Market is great for stocking up on food if you are staying in a self-catering establishment, and you can also find some great crafts and arts there to take home. If you enjoy visiting historic churches, St George’s Anglican Cathedral and St Mary’s Catholic Cathedral are shining examples of 1800s buildings with St Mary’s displaying a unique mixture of Moor, Roman, and Georgian architecture. You will also enjoy touring Fort Charlotte and Fort Duvernette, both fortifications that protected the island.  

Nature lovers will enjoy walking through the Botanical Gardens of St Vincent. These gardens contain one of the original breadfruit trees brought to the island by the HMS Bounty and Captain Bligh. The grounds are filled with a variety of native birds, and guided tours are available. The dirt Black Point Tunnel is the only access road that connects the north and south parts of the island and is only the width of a single car!  

Move away from the cities and the interior of the island to the coastline to visit the beaches and warm waters that surround St Vincent. While you relax on the beach you have the opportunity to see six different types of dolphins swim by. Orca and pilot whales are also frequent visitors to St Vincent as are sea turtles at the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary. You can take Jeep Safari tours around the island, hike the nature trails to visit the lush interior of the island, or even just enjoy snorkelling on the coast and the sight of the colourful fish that swim in the reefs around the island.  

If shopping is your thing, then Kingstown is the place to go. You can find food, crafts, books, and more here. Jewellery is inexpensive and affordable and you will find just about anything that tickles your fancy amid the cobblestones of the shopping district in the city.
