What to Expect

Travelling to Bequia has often been described as part of the appeal for many of our guests; peel away from the crowds in Barbados as your little aircraft skims the clouds towards the Grenadines. 

In the interest of national health and safety, the Government of St. Vincent & The Grenadines have implemented requirements of travellers.
