Travel

The island of Bequia is easily reached from N. America & Europe via two of the larger Caribbean islands – Barbados, & St Lucia, both of which have daily international connections to London, New York, Miami etc. 

The recently opened international airport on neighbouring St. Vincent is now served by weekly flights from Toronto (Air Canada) & New York (Caribbean Airlines).
Getting To Bequia
Most international flights arrive into Barbados & St. Lucia during the mid-afternoon, we recommend checking the arrival time so as to allow sufficient time for the connection to Bequia.

SVG Air & Grenadine Airways serve Bequia with several ‘island-hopping’ flights per day – there are no landing lights on the runway on Bequia so flights must depart Barbados no later than 16:30 in order to land on the island before sunset after which the airport closes. If this is a case, an overnight in Barbados or 

Bequia Beach Hotel's own air shuttle service can however accommodate later incoming flights.

Fly with Bequia Beach Hotel's Air Shuttle

We are delighted to announce the launch of Bequia Beach Hotel’s own exclusive air shuttle. Enjoy a seamless charters from Barbados, St Lucia or other destinations.
