St. Vincent & The Grenadines Vacations
Lying at the southern end of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, St. Vincent offers a stunning playground far from the stresses of city life. Its sheer cliffs rise proudly above the sea, while tropical marine life dances beneath the waves. Its verdant 150 square miles consist of the main island of St. Vincent and the northern two-thirds of the Grenadines, 32 isles stretching south towards Grenada.
The capital, Kingstown, and its lively Kingstown Market, welcome visitors to this port city with open arms. Stunning Botanical Gardens with myriad birds and tropical plants, and sturdy Fort Charlotte offer two very different perspectives on island life. The fort, once a formidable deterrent against the French and Caribs, provides a fantastic vantage point on the island and the sparkling seas. The lovely St. Vincent Botanic Gardens, the oldest in the western hemisphere offer a tranquil oasis amidst bustling Kingstown.
