The island of Bequia, located 9 miles north west of Mustique in the southern Caribbean, has a unique, magical charm which is hard to find anywhere else in the Caribbean.
This has led it to be called the "jewel" in the Grenadines.
Relatively undiscovered and with only 4900 inhabitants, Bequia remains unspoiled and retains its old-world charm with no large tourist resorts or shopping malls.
The islanders are known for their friendliness – dependence on inter-island shipping and trading has meant that Bequians have been eagerly welcoming visitors to their shores for generations.
At 7 sq. miles the island fulfills many dreams of the perfect small Caribbean island: beautiful sandy beaches with reefs perfect for snorkeling and diving, lush green hillsides and hardly any traffic. In addition, the capital, Port Elizabeth, offers a number of small restaurants and boutiques.
