With a population of just 5000, everyone knows everyone on Bequia. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and the lack of all-inclusive hotels keeps the throngs away. Its teeny size spans 7 square miles, but it's the second biggest island in the Grenadines, with a villagey capital, a beautiful harbour, and plenty of near-deserted beaches. Take a scenic stoll along Belmont Walkway and call in at one of the bars and restaurants the line the beachfront, discover the island's whaling tradition at the maritime museum in Port Elizabeth, or take a boat out to explore nearby islands. Aside from this, put your feet up, have a cocktail, and enjoy the infectious, laid-back vibes of this cool little Caribbean island.
