St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a chain of small islands, beautifully secluded and uncluttered of tourism. Each is blessed with intense natural beauty, boasting verdant mountain peaks and dramatic volcanic landscapes that both overlook white sand beaches, waterfalls, wooded valleys, and active coral reefs. The Caribbean’s jewel islands make an idyllic getaway.
Although peaceful it does not lack in opportunities for adventure. The Vermont Nature Trail is a must, a real one-with-nature experience as you wind your way deep into tropical rainforest. Ambient temperatures and abundant rainfall make a luscious terrain to explore a variety of flora, wildlife and native fruits. Remote waterfalls can be reached by boat or car, an exhilarant experience cascading down high cliff faces and plunging into natural pools. From land to sea, the colourful marine life creates a serene ambience to your luxury holiday in the Caribbean. Uninhabited islands in a coral reef lagoon is home to a paradise of turtles, rays, shoals of fish and squid. Each small island has its own port; yachting can make the perfect day trip for those who prefer to stay above the surface.
As vibrant as the island, carnival is the main cultural event is St. Vincent and the Grenadines. St. Vincent’s Carnival, or Vincy Mas, has an identity all of its own. Kicking off with an official launching in May, carnival celebrations stretch all the way through to July, culminating in the world famous street parties of J’Ouvert and Mardi Gras. Calypso, soca (which blends traditional calypso and Indian rhythmic instruments), and Jamaican dancehall and reggae music influence this fabulously colourful bonanza of costumes, music and dance. For something a bit quieter, go back in time with historical visits to colonial infrastructures; the 18th- century Botanical Gardens, Fort Charlotte and St. Georgia’s Anglican Cathedral. Slowing down completely, luxuriate yourself with a sea facing spa treatment facilitated by Mandarin Oriental Resort.
