The island in the clouds
One of 32 islands that make up St Vincent and Grenadines, blissful Bequia measures just seven square miles, is home to fewer than 5,000 inhabitants and boasts unspoiled golden sandy beaches, secret lagoons and some of the world’s clearest skies.
One of the most beautiful and secluded islands within the Grenadines, Bequia is peaceful and secluded with awe-inspiring beaches, including Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay. Both of which can be reached on foot by the new Belmont Walkway from Port Elizabeth.
