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.
