St. Vincent + The Grenadines

St. Vincent + The Grenadines Travel Guide

This 96-foot schooner, sails to the islets twice a week from Bequia.

Visit this turtle preserve, built and operated with astounding dedication by local fisherman Orton "Brother" King.

Explore the kaleidoscopic blue-green waters of this five-island wildlife reserve where parts of Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed. Day-trippers swim with sea turtles and stingrays and snorkel among acres of coral reef tiled with starfish.

The Scene: Fabulous at more than 40 years old, the low-key Frangipani Bar on Bequia continues to make waves by serving up creative, affordable cocktails (it's $4 for the house special, the Frangi Fever).

For the ultimate in island chic, stop by Lotty Bunbury’s new boutique. In addition to her caftans and pareus—staples for any Mustique wardrobe—the pastel gingerbread cottage also carries designs by other part-time residents, including Elle McPherson and Elizabeth Hurley.

The Scene: Sitting over the Caribbean on bamboo stilts, with a thatched roof and Balinese décor, this formerly tiny rum shack has expanded over the last 30 years, hosting everyone from Academy Award winners to royalty.

The company has catamarans that depart daily from Union Island.
