What to see in St Vincent And The Grenadines
St Vincent And The Grenadines Attractions
Holidays in St Vincent and the Grenadines are mostly filled with relaxation and fun in the sun and sea; the islands' beaches are excellent and the seas are popular for sailing and watersports. However, there are many things to see and do in St Vincent and the Grenadines besides lazing on the beach.
The main cities in St Vincent, Kingstown and Bequia, provide a unique insight into the culture of the island nation. Kingstown's colourful markets and good restaurants make it a good base for hiking to La Soufriere Volcano, or exploring the filming locations from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Bequia (also known as Port Elizabeth) is a sleepy seaside town with less to offer in terms of shopping and entertainment, but providing easy access to the beaches of Mustique, the historic Hamilton Fort, and the Oldhegg Turtle Sanctuary.
Travelling north from Kingstown, visitors can drive along the Leeward highway, a scenic route with many steep hills giving way to stunning panoramic vistas; the route then descends to the village of Layou at sealevel. Another scenic area is Marriqua Valley, a lush and fertile valley full of dense forests, meandering rivers, terraced farms and small settlements.
