The multi-island destination of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is perfect for those who want to get off the beaten track. Its nine inhabited islands - St. Vincent, Young Island, Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union Island, Palm Island and Petit St. Vincent - are diverse and unique in character, offering something for everyone.

Itinerary

My first trip to SVG was memorable in so many ways. I flew from Barbados on a private charter into the biggest island, St. Vincent, and was soon on the tiny ferry to Young Island for a relaxing few days on this private island in a hilltop room with my own pool.
Then it was down to the port to catch the ferry to Bequia where I spent my time driving round this charming and unspoilt island on its windy, narrow roads.
Next, a local fishing boat to Mustique, and I was whisked off to Cotton House for a stay of complete luxury.
Last stop was Tamarind Beach Hotel in Canouan – they even sent a plane to collect me!
After a few days reading, watching the tortoises and enjoying the bay it was sadly time for the ferry to Union Island to catch the flight back.
An amazing 10 days!!
