A true tropical paradise, St Vincent and the Grenadines is an island nation in the heart of the Caribbean. Just nine of the country’s 32 islands are inhabited, ensuring there are plenty of deserted beaches and pristine sands to explore. An intoxicating mix of sunshine, lush countryside and Caribbean culture, this idyllic archipelago is one of the most beautiful and enchanting countries in the region.
Where is St Vincent and the Grenadines?
Located in the Lesser Antilles, in the southern portion of the Windward Islands, St Vincent and the Grenadines is near where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. South of St Lucia and west of Barbados, it’s far less commercial and less developed than its neighbours. In fact, St Vincent and the Grenadines is one of the few countries in the Caribbean that still offers authentic charm, natural beauty and local flavour.

With so many islands to choose from, it’s no surprise that St Vincent and the Grenadines is famous for its beaches.
