St Vincent
and The Grenadines

Caribbean tips you can trust


Why St Vincent
and The Grenadines
are special

The Grenadines (as the country is often called) is the Caribbean's finest and most famous sailing and yachting area. It has many secluded coves with beaches and coral reefs beckoning you to lay anchor for sunbathing, swimming, diving, snorkeling, and over-nighting.

Must visits

The Grenadines chain has 32 islands and cays. The most significant are:

St Vincent

This is the largest island and has less appeal than the smaller ones. The capital city Kingstown resides. The island has some resorts, but most visitors use St Vincent as a gateway to the smaller, slower-paced islands.


Situated just off St Vincent Island. Has a well-regarded private resort.


Ritzy. This is where the rich, famous, and powerful hole up.


The luxury Raffles Resort is here.


Great beaches. Has a wide choice of accommodations.

Tobago Cays

Popular with vacationers seeking modest-priced accommodations and a variety of good-vibe places to eat and drink.

Union Island and Palm Island are popular, but they don't make my must-visit list. Their traditional Grenadines character is compromised because of their nearness to Grenada. Daytrip visitors from Grenada overly influence the look and feel.
