SIGHTSEEING

VILLA RENTALS

DO NOT MISS THE BOAT
It's a short sail between most of the islands in the Grenadines. An hourly ferry links St. Vincent and Bequia. The Passion, a catamaran run by a crusty ex-Marine, goes to Mustique. If you're in a hurry, take SVG Air (784/457-5124) or Mustique Airlines (800/526-4789).
