THE GRENADINES ARE PURE CARIBBEAN…
Encompassing an area of 40 miles, these scenic islands adorn one of the world’s most beautiful expanses of water.
ST. VINCENT / YOUNG ISLAND CUT – GRENADINES
A sailor’s delight, the Grenadines offer warm trade winds, brilliant turquoise waters, sheltered harbors, scenic shores, lush green valleys, long stretches of white sand beaches (where you’ll rarely see another footprint), and incredible coral reefs for snorkeling and diving. Fewer than a dozen of the islands are inhabited.
CULTURE St. Vincent and the Grenadines share traditional West Indian Culture, giving it a multi-ethnic twist of African, Black Carib, French and British influences. West Indian hospitality is warm and friendly.
Fruits and vegetables are sold throughout the Grenadines. Seafood is abundant, with conch, fish, shrimp, whelk and lobster appearing on most menus. The national dish is breadfruit and fried jackfish. Don’t forget to try the sweet and juicy St. Vincent orange which is ripe while still green, or the locally distilled Captain Bligh Rum.
SNORKELING AND DIVING
The Grenadines offer first rate diving and snorkeling. The excellent visibility in these crystal waters allow great viewing of colorful sponges, soft corals, great strands of elkhorn coral and a few sunken wrecks.
MUSIC AND CARNIVAL
The music of the islands is mostly Reggae, Calypso and Steel bands. Try to be at St. Vincent’s spectacular carnival in early July and enjoy the colorful costumes, shows, parades, and parties!
