Whether you’re planning your honeymoon or think that romance in paradise shouldn’t just be the reserve of newly weds you’ll be spoilt for choice with our pick of dreamy destinations.
It’s easy to see why St Vincent & The Grenadines can lay claim to being the best kept secret in the Caribbean. Whilst bigger neighbours get more attention, and crowds, St Vincent & The Grenadines has remained an unspoilt, authentic destination for travellers ‘in the know’.
Comprising of the lush St. Vincent island
and a group of islands known for their white sandy beaches called The Grenadines, the islands are stunningly beautiful and the perfect place to enjoy the honeymoon of a lifetime!
Couples can enjoy total privacy and peace at secluded resorts set amidst kaleidoscopic coloured settings of rich green foliage, dazzling white sands and soft, warm azure waters.
Plus a little tip for those who dream of getting married on a beach: the relaxed marriage laws make it the most worry-free location to experience an exotic, blissful wedding even within 24-hours of landing.
They don't call it the "land of the blessed" for nothing! Swim in idyllic lagoons and volcanic pools and waterfalls, dive the tropical reefs off the deserted cayes and meet their rare inhabitants - Hawksbill turtles, angel fish, dolphins and whales. Or hike to the top of one of the most scientifically studied volcanoes in the world. You’ll no doubt work up the appetite of an adventurer by the end of the day,
and as a responsible traveler you’ll be pleased to know that virtually everything you eat in St Vincent & The Grenadines will have been grown or reared locally.
Most of all, it is the people who live here that make visits so memorable. You’ll find it easy to become immersed in the local culture and if you’re lucky enough to time your trip with one of the local festivals you’ll be in for a great party! Hear what the locals have to say here
