Bequia The Perfect Choice For A Caribbean Family Vacation

Jan 9, 2008
Bequia is a tiny Caribbean Island, tucked away in the Grenadines, almost unknown, especially compared to one of its illustrious closest neighbors Mustique, and it likes it that way.

Not so many years ago it wasn't uncommon to literally walk into a glamorous rock star in a bar on Bequia, who could walk unrecognized around the bars of this very laid back island. This was, and still remains one of the major attractions of Bequia.

Bequia has less than six thousand residents and it has a feel to it, that is at once both magical and enduring, in the sense that you feel from the moment you arrive, that somehow this is a different Caribbean destination. You seem to have a sense that Bequia is somewhere you just know you will want to return to.

It's different, it's friendly, it's unspoilt, and it's probably the Caribbean you thought some of the better known islands would be!!

Bequia doesn't have five star resorts and Spas, covering half a hillside, but what it does have is luxury hill top villas, air conditioned apartments, and absolutely first class small privately owned hotels. You will find friendly beachfront guesthouses, and don't ever forget a privately owned yacht as your home for a vacation, because the Grenadines are famed for sailing. In other words, don't come here if the trappings of twenty first century resorts are an essential part of your vacation.

Bequia isn't for the type of people who need waiters at their beck and call, with London chefs and signature restaurants a necessary part of their cocooned vacation.

Bequia is for the old fashioned sort of family, who appreciate natural welcoming smiles backed by honesty. Bequia is for people who might describe themselves as travelers in the old fashioned sense of the word, as opposed to modern tourists.

All of this makes Bequia the perfect destination for everything from the best Caribbean Family Vacation to the real good old fashioned Caribbean Honeymoon Vacation, always providing you have old fashioned principles, and you appreciate what is genuine, and understand that not everyone has the good fortune to live and work where you do.

The people of Bequia respond to people who respond to them, and they can and will give you the honeymoon experience of a lifetime, or the best family experience you will ever have.

One of the great things about a vacation on Bequia is your choices of what to do. Here is the center of the best sailing in the Grenadines, and the harbour is full of chartered yachts, the bars and restaurants packed with sailors, creating a unique atmosphere of excitement. If you don't sail, then you can dive in some of the most beautiful waters in the world.
Enjoy beautiful beach relaxation, explore on foot, by car, or by bike. Travel to the many other islands of the Grenadines and stay overnight to experience the differences between the islands.

You could on the other hand do absolutely nothing but enjoy the weather, the atmosphere, the beaches, and then in the evenings enjoy a breadth of cuisine that is truly astonishing from gourmet international to quite superb local food. You can go to a lively jump up to a steel band.

There really is something for everyone in the family on Bequia in this quiet corner of the Caribbean.
