Bequia; 'the Caribbean's best-kept secret' can be reached from all parts of the world.


Bequia, part of the stunning island chain known as the Grenadines is located in the unspoilt southern Caribbean.

Same day arrival to Bequia is possible with most guests transferring via Barbados – served by daily international flights from London, New York, Miami, Toronto etc.

Alternatively the new airport in neighbouring St. Vincent is served by weekly flights from Miami, Toronto & New York. Bequia can also be reached via St. Lucia & Grenada via private charters.

Bequia is served by multiple short island-hopper flights daily from Barbados, including our own VIP Transfer with Bequia Air - exclusively for guests, just let us know what time you’re flight lands and our reservations team will handle the rest. We advise guests to check seat availability prior to booking international flights. 



"While the others on my Boeing 777 from Gatwick were doubtless stuck in Barbados traffic en route to their hotels, I found myself on a 22-seater inter-isle mosquito of a plane, feeling excited to be flying. 

Peeling away from the package crowd, I found remoteness to rival the Indian Ocean — only nicely priced, friendly and bling-free."

'Beq in time' - Nick Redman (Sunday Times, January 2019)

Flights to Bequia operate only during the daytime (sunrise to sunset). In the event that your international flight is delayed or lands too late for take-off to meet Bequia’s airport sunset closure, an overnight at our sister property Grenadine House in St. Vincent is recommended, alternatively Barbados.

It is recommended that guests check the availability of the inter-island transfers before confirming international flights.

Most international flights arrive into Barbados during the mid-afternoon, we recommend checking the arrival time so as to allow sufficient time for the connection to Bequia.

Please contact us, to book your inter-island transfers.
