A lot less touristy than its neighbouring Grenadines due to its black sand beaches, Saint Vincent is worth visiting if you have some time to appreciate its tropical forest with luxuriant vegetation that spreads around the volcanic relief. Thus, the sportier will launch an attack on the Soufrière, a dreaded volcano that makes a great hike of 3 hours. You may also be interested in the Falls of Baleine, 65-ft waterfalls falling over the sides of the volcano. The fishing village of Layou is popular as it is so picturesque.
