  • The small paradisiacal islands surrender themselves wonderfully to leisure.

  • You need to enjoy sailing and have a hefty budget to appreciate these millionaire islands.

Saint Vincent and The Grenadines: what to visit?

Saint Vincent and The Grenadines: what to buy?

You cannot visit the archipelago without indulging in a little shopping. As a souvenir, you could bring back small handcrafted knick-knacks: wooden sculptures, fabric dolls, etc. Shops are open from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 13:00 pm to 16:00 pm Monday to Friday, and from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm on Saturday.

Saint Vincent and The Grenadines: what to eat?

The local cuisine is Creole. Fish, poultry and spices often compose the dishes served here, accompanied by exotic vegetables such as Caribbean cabbage, sweet potato and dasheen (tuber served as a puree)... Large baskets of fruit overflowing with guavas, coconuts, bananas and even mangos replace cakes. Prestigious hotels in the Grenadines also serve international cuisine. Making yourself a great mixture of grilled fish and lobster is a "must".

Saint Vincent and The Grenadines: travel tips

The best idea is to hire a catamaran, with or without a crew, and sail from one island to the next. Many sailing boats leave from Martinique (anticipate around 20 hrs of sailing to reach the archipelago). Plan a day of sailing to Tobago Cays, a string of small islands with a coral reef: one of the most beautiful places in the Lesser Antilles. In Saint Vincent, climbing the Soufrière volcano is undertaken with a guide (the volcano is still active) and you need to wake up early if you want to enjoy a cloudless view: ideally you should get to the summit before 11:30 am.
