Admiralty Bay, on the Caribbean coast of Bequia, is one of the best known mooring sites in the Grenadines and is home to many permanently moored and visiting sailboats. The island's main town, Port Elisabeth, also enjoys a perfectly sheltered location at the heart of the bay. Edged with white sandy beaches and lovely bars where you can relax with a drink, this really is the perfect spot for getting acquainted with the Caribbean way of life. A small fort built by the French before the English recaptured the island stands overlooking the western end of the bay.
