St. Vincent or Yurumein as it was named by our Garifuna ancestors, is the main island in our archipelago of 32 islands and cays that stretch across 44 miles.
From hiking trails through verdant rainforests, to the majestic La Soufrière Volcano, waterfalls and black sand beaches, St. Vincent is a green, volcanic beauty. There is much more to explore in the eight other inhabited islands and secluded cays of the Grenadines.
Bask in the sun on pristine, white or pink sand beaches or snorkel or swim in our turquoise waters. No visit is complete without a trip to the magnificent Tobago Cays Marine Park. Our destination is a cosmos of contrasting scenery and vibes that give credence to the adage “variety is the spice of life.”Read more about St. Vincent & the Grenadines
