When we were first planning our trip to the Grenadines, I knew that I wanted to get under the water and explore the Caribbean Sea on scuba. After my amazing dives in Belize, I was really looking forward to donning my mask and regulator ...
About St. Vincent & The Grenadines Travel
Welcome to our St. Vincent & The Grenadines Travel Guide. On this page you'll find all of our posts about St. Vincent & The Grenadines travel as well as some useful travel tips about the best time to visit, where to go, things to do, a travel budget and much more.
St. Vincent & The Grenadines has all of the splendor that you'd expect from the Caribbean, including stunning white sand beaches, lush jungles, healthy coral reefs and fantastic resorts, but with far fewer visitors than the other, more popular island nations like Jamaica and Barbados.
The Tobago Cays are so breathtaking that I think everyone in the world should see them at some point in their lives. These uninhabited jewels in the South Caribbean are about as gorgeous as they come and swimming with turtles in the crystal clear water is an experience of a lifetime.
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is a multi-island Anglo-Caribbean country in the Lesser Antilles chain of Windward Islands, which lie in the southern portion of the West Indies (Caribbean Sea).
The 389 square kilometre (150 square mile) territory consists of the main island of Saint Vincent (which is also the largest island) and the Grenadines, a chain of 31 smaller islands.
9 of the Grenadines islands are inhabited including Bequia, Mustique, Union Island, Palm Island, Canouan and Mayreau, while the others are uninhabited - like the Tobago Cays, Petit St. Vincent, Baliceaux, Quatre, Petite Mustique, Savan, Petit Nevis and Bettowia.
Most visitors who come to St. Vincent & The Grenadines will land in St. Vincent Island and enjoy some of the beaches there, as well as the mountainous, jungle-clad interior, before hopping on a ferry (or a domestic flight) and visiting some of the smaller islands like Bequia, Mustique and Union Island.
We visited St. Vincent & The Grenadines as a short, 2-week long trip from neighbouring Grenada and we loved it. It was simple enough to get between the islands and our trip to the Tobago Cays was incredible.

During our trip through the Grenadines, we spent 9 nights on the gorgeous island of Bequia, and would’ve stayed longer if we had the time. Bequia Island is full of gorgeous, boutique-style hotels. During our stay on Bequia, we were lucky enough to experience ...
Bequia Island (pronounced bekway) is the second largest island in the Grenadines and although it has a similar Caribbean vibe to its neighbours, it’s unique in its own ways. Many Bequians can trace their roots back to the famous whalers, Joseph Ollivierre and William Wallace ...
We’re not sailors, yachties or cruisers, we’re just travellers who want to make our way from one point to the next. If you look out from any waterfront restaurant or hotel in the Grenadines, you’ll see numerous sailboats, catamarans and yachts anchored out there, bobbing ...
This Happy little atoll lies just a few hundred meters off the coast of Union Island in St.Vincent and The Grenadines. It all started with a man named Janti, who was working as a volunteer environmental officer. With tourism starting to flourish in SVG, ...
“Where do we stamp into the country?” I asked as we docked at the tiny, wooden pier. “At the airport” was the captain’s reply. True, the airport would be the typical place one receives their arrival stamp, but we had arrived by boat, not air! ...
THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT
When To Travel To St. Vincent & The Grenadines
The Best Time To Visit: May-June & October-November
- High Season: December-April
- Low Season: June-September
- April - June (spring), July - August (summer), July - October (hurricane), November - March (winter)
The best time to visit St. Vincent & The Grenadines is in the shoulder-season which is generally May-June and October-November. During these times, the weather is still generally hot, sunny and dry, the hotels and resorts will drop their rates, and the winter peak-season crowds have mostly thinned out.
Crowds and prices both plummet in the hurricane season between July and October. Because St. Vincent & The Grenadines are within the hurricane belt, there is a risk of dangerous storms at this time of year.
Weather in St. Vincent & The Grenadines (According to Holiday-Weather.com)
Hottest Month: May (28.5°C / 83°F)
Coldest Month: January (26.5°C / 80°F)
Sunniest Month: March (10 hours / day)
Wettest Month: July (170mm of Rainfall)

We visited St. Vincent & The Grenadines in June and we had great weather. This is a good time to visit as there are very few crowds, the hotels are discounted and it's just before the hurricane season starts. Late October is another great time to visit because you'll be at the end of hurricane season, but you can still see the island at its greenest.
