St Vincent and the Grenadines
St Vincent and the Grenadines encompasses 32 gorgeous Caribbean Islands.
St Vincent – the main Island – the most popular with tourists who come for the great beaches, diving and watersports. The more adventurous of holidaymaker can hike up to the top of La Soufriere volcano, where they will be rewarded with impressive panoramic vistas of the Islands.
The lively capital Kingstown is a charming colonial town with cobbled streets and covered walkways. Known as the “city of arches”, Kingstown features over 400 colonial-style arches!
Though not a tourist destination in itself, Kingstown is the gateway to the other, more isolated Islands of the Grenadines, where you will find uncrowded beaches, verdant landscapes and superb diving.
