Welcome to Bequia!
Bequia means island of clouds in Arawak but don't let the name deceive you: Bequia's lush hills are much lower than the peaks of St. Vincent, 10 miles to the north, so they don't catch as many showers.
Bequia is a favorite among yachts, expats and vacationers, most of whom will come back again and again to enjoy its hospitable, laid back and friendly atmosphere. Feel like being part of this? Check out our Bequia villas page where you'll find a selection of lovely Caribbean dwellings available for rent. Suggestion: you could choose to combine your stay in Bequia with a yacht charter through the other Grenadines.
The main port Admiralty Bay and the "town" Port Elizabeth are situated on the leeward coast. The bay is a large natural harbour, so there are always yachts anchored at the pretty beaches lining it.
Port Elizabeth has a charming waterfront; take a stroll from the vegetable market, follow "front street" with its many shops, boutiques and restaurants, keep going along the beach walkway, maybe stop for a drink at the Frangipani or Gingerbread. From there the walkway continues on a hilly track to Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay Beach.
The more energetic can walk to Spring, a former plantation on the eastern coast of the island and from there further north to the turtle sanctuary at Industry.
feel like walking? There are many friendly taxi drivers proud to take you on a
tour of their island. This way you can, apart from the above also visit
Friendship Bay (also reachable by foot of course!) in the south of the island, home
of boat builders, fishermen and whalers.
Evening comes, in Bequia you'll find plenty opportunity to enjoy a relaxed Caribbean nightlife and socialize with some of your new found friends. Enjoy!
Main Events are
the Bequia Easter Regatta, you guessed, this takes place at Easter, fun for
landlubbers and sailors alike.
