As all of the Grenadines, Bequia is of volcanic origin. Running from an elevation of 800 feet to sea level, Bequia is only six square miles and enjoys a lush vegetation although there is no tropical forest.
Considered as one of the safest harbors in the
Grenadines, Admiralty Bay is host to Yachts
from all over the world. Port Elizabeth is the
main town, located at the harbor, with a main
street which extends several blocks. You will
find a variety of shops, banks, grocery stores,
bars and restaurants.
Bequia is a dream island. The one you will
be surprised to find in today’s world.
It is not a trendy place, it is a genuine island.
It has an old tradition of building boats by
hand and hunting whales. One of the major events
of the year is the Regata where the sailing
boats of all of the Caribbeans come to compete.
Things to do:
While there, you will enjoy some of the most
pristine beaches of the Caribbeans, among them
Princess Margaret’s Beach rated one of
the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Spend a whole day sailing to Mustique or to
the Tobago Keys on the Friendship Rose (see
link), charter a sailing boat or go deep sea
fishing. You can also go snorkeling, or take
advantage of the two well equipped diving schools.
You have over thirty restaurants to choose from on the island, with a variety of menus encompassing pizza, salad bars , Creole cuisine, curry’s and Caribbean jerks, lobsters all the way to high end continental cuisine.
No matter which one you pick, your dress code will be easy
(casual to informal…)
Upon your arrival at the Villa, you will find a binder with the complete list of all the restaurants.
