Bequia island holiday in the nature of the Caribbean. Translated, it means Island in the Clouds, at least that’s what the locals told us. Indeed, the island is very small and we personally walked. The best option is to rent a room in Port Elizabeth. There is actually everything like food transport and companies that organize various attractions.
Bequia Island has an airport where small planes land, as we did. The population is about five thousand people. They are engaged only in fishing and tourism. Most work in hotels or villas. It is administratively located on the island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. It is located 14 km south of it. In the past, the island of Bequia was a base for whaling ships, but after the whales disappeared, Port Elizabeth declined as a port.
This is a great advantage for local tourism, which enjoys successful seasons. From the photos you can see how many yachts dock on the island. Visitors are unlikely to be so interested in the history of the island or visit the Atnil Petit Museum. Our family mainly came to spend an unforgettable vacation here.
