About Bequia

Bequia is the largest, and arguably the most beautiful island in the Grenadines. Its beaches are the kind of stunning that makes photographers (and marketing folk) gasp, with soft white sand and crystal clear waters. As well as beauty, Bequia is known for its relaxed pace. And all this can come with a very affordable price tag. The best places to stay on Bequia range from low-key B&Bs to luxurious boutique hotels.

One of Bequia's most perfect beaches, Princess Margaret Beach, is conveniently located by the largest town of Port Elizabeth - it's a bit of an effort to get there though, but well worth the boat-taxi or drive. The next beach over, Lower Bay, is pretty too and has a nice cafe. In fact the majority of Bequia's beaches are very pretty indeed.

You can see most of Bequia on foot, or take a boat-taxi for the novelty of it! This is a relaxed sort of place, but if you're looking for things to do there's a good quality farmers market near the dingy dock in Port Elizabeth, there's a nice church, a few interesting buildings and plenty of walking tracks.

What not to miss

  • The town of Port Elizabeth is well worth an explore
  • The diving and snorkeling in the area is excellent, as with the majority of the Caribbean!
  • Relax and explore the magical beaches that make up most of the coastline

All our best places to in Bequia are perfect places where you can relax while also exploring the island.
