Explore Bequia with Elegant Resorts
Bequia is quite simply, bliss. Combining elegance with a characteristic charm, it has managed to stay under the radar of the usual tourist tracks, leaving the peaceful white sand beaches to be enjoyed by those who have discovered its brilliance.
With an area of just seven square miles, Bequia - pronounced 'Beck-way' - packs a lot within its small boundaries. Unlike the private islands of St Vincent and The Grenadines, this livelier isle has a population of over four-thousand people, and a human history that gives it a little more personality. Port Elizabeth is the main village, where a fruit and vegetable market and colourful wooden houses make for an authentic atmosphere. It also has some beautiful beaches, such as the adorably named Friendship Beach, where Bequia Beach hotel sits.
When in the Caribbean, one of the best things to do is nothing at all. This could suit you perfectly in Bequia, but there is also plenty to keep you busy. You could hike up Mt Peggy, the highest point on the island, and enjoy the beautiful views. You could hire a boat and seek out the uninhabited islands and watch out for dolphins splashing in the distance. You could learn about the history with a visit to the eighteenth-century fort overlooking Admirality Bay and gaze out over the sea. You may not have heard much about it, but Bequia could be your new favourite Caribbean Island.
