‘Beautiful Bequia (pronounced bek way) is an undiscovered paradise, the Caribbean of 30 years ago. Covering an area of just 7 square miles and with a population of only 6000, Bequia lies in the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is just a short plane hop from the ever popular Barbados and next to the renowned Mustique, both favourite islands of the rich and famous. It is the largest of the Grenadine Islands known also as the ‘jewels of the Caribbean’ and is blessed with several pristine, white sandy beaches many of which are totally natural and undeveloped. The recently renovated Belmont Walkway joins three of these beautiful beaches together and meanders around two headlands offering both excellent snorkelling and a leisurely 2 mile walk passing rum bars, cafes, restaurants and small boutique style shops.
Bequia truly is a unique Island. Large enough to be interesting and exciting, yet small enough to retain its local charm and uniqueness that only a small ‘off the beaten track’ Caribbean Island can offer. Wherever you go on Bequia, you will be given the warmest of welcomes. They know you are here to relax and everyone is happy to help you have the holiday of a lifetime.
If you want resort hotels, nightclubs and beaches full of sunbeds, don’t come to Bequia. If you want to discover the undiscovered, visit our beautiful Island, enjoy the uncrowded pristine white sandy beaches, swim and snorkel in our safe and warm Caribbean waters and experience the genuine friendliness of the local Bequian people.
