Holidays on Bequia in the Grenadines
Bequia – just the sound of the word (pronounced Beckway) is enchanting and that's before you have set eyes on this beautiful tiny island that sits quietly in the blue waters of the Grenadines. Just seven square miles and with a population of about 5,000, Bequia stands as a reminder of how the Caribbean was 50 years ago, when only a few visitors ventured this far.
Nowadays there is tourism on a massive scale to many islands, but sadly with that surge in numbers, huge all-inclusive hotels have spread their tentacles across the Caribbean. This makes it more difficult to find places that are relatively untouched by tourism – but Bequia is such a place and is a real jewel of charm and authenticity.
Beautiful deserted beaches, sparkling blue waters, little bars and restaurants on the water's edge, just a few hotels, and the friendliest people who still follow the crafts of their forefathers – fishing, sailing, boat building and sail making. Just Grenada now offers you the chance to visit Bequia and see this little gem for yourself – either as part of a trip to Grenada or as an entirely separate holiday. Idyllic and romantic for couples and ideal for families who love the beach and the water, as well as fine local dishes served in stunning surroundings.
