St Vincent & Grenadines Vacation Rentals
As a part of the British Windward Islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines are little treasures in the Caribbean that offer unsurpassed natural beauty and a surprisingly peaceful environment. The next time you want to truly escape from it all and enjoy a Caribbean setting away from the crowds, set your vacation compass for a St. Vincent and the Grenadines vacation rental.
Although you will not find the exciting nightlife and exquisite restaurants that populate many Caribbean islands, St. Vincent is home to some of the most breathtaking scenic beauty available. Along the sheltered west side, guests of St. Vincent vacation rentals
can visit one of the Caribbean’s finest petroglyphs at Carib Rock or access the freshwater Falls of Baleine. In the Marriqua Valley, the Queen’s Drive is always worthwhile for the panoramic views of the capital city of Kingstown, while a ride up the Vigie Highway is the best way to see the towering Grand Bonhomme Mountain.
In addition to the stunning views, there are two attractions that cannot be missed. Fort Charlotte, built around the time of the American Revolution, offers an extensive look over the leeward shores and Kingstown all the way out towards the Grenadines. At the Botanic Gardens, located on the north side of the capital city, guests of St. Vincent rentals can catch a glimpse of tropical, exotic plants and the unique Soufrière tree.
Although many of the beaches are not exactly picturesque with their black sand, there are a few on St. Vincent that are worth a look. The most popular, Villa Beach, is only a short drive from Kingstown and offers calm waters that are perfect for swimming. At the nearby Indian Bay Beach, visitors can relax along this narrow golden strip of sand or head out into the waters for a swimming or snorkeling expedition.
Long known for having the best sailing waters in the Caribbean, the Grenadines are a small chain of islands that, in contrast to St. Vincent, offer stunning beaches and a wide range of water-filled activities. Although many of the islands are undeveloped, there are a few natural wonders, including Bequia, Canouan, Palm Island, and Carriacou, that are perfect for learning what the Grenadines are all about.
The northernmost of the Grenadines, visitors of Bequia vacation rentals
will find secluded stretches of sand and plenty of seaside adventures to keep them occupied during their stay. Water sports equipment and glistening white sands are available near Friendship Bay, while Lower Bay and Industry Bay are the perfect jumping off point for an afternoon of swimming, snorkeling, or resting under a palm tree. Near the main village of Port Elizabeth, guests of Bequia villa rentals can also catch a glimpse of anchored yachts and craftsmen building boats with their bare hands.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines are the perfect place for an off the beaten path adventure complete with plenty of rest and relaxation. To experience the tranquil island getaway you always imagined, book your St. Vincent and the Grenadines vacation rental today.
