Fabulous desert island treasures, our awe-inspiring beaches are picture perfect – from the powder-white sand beaches that adorn our pretty islands and cays to the picturesque black sand beaches that fringe the windward and leeward coasts on our main island. Take your time – discover our beaches.
There is, however, a more hidden other option in the form of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, our new favorite place.
The 32-island chain is extraordinarily underdeveloped (meaning more natural beauty for visitors to enjoy) and is well-known for their impeccable diving, sailing and sandy white beaches. So, yea, basically, combine all those other interests into one awesome country.
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are north of Trinidad and Tobago and are (fairly) quick trip by plane from Barbados, Grenada and a host of other popular Caribbean destinations.
You can arrive on a cruise or ferry, too. For those of us in need of an immediate getaway, beware: Though temperatures are pretty much perfect year-round, December-April is “prime time” for visitors.
Though the islands aren’t large in size (they’re roughly twice the size of Washington, D.C.), there are a lot of them. To make it easier to choose the island for you, we’ve highlighted the five islands you really need to visit.
