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.

St. Vincent and The Grenadines

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.

Travel St.Vincent & The Grenadines

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.

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)Warmest Sea: August (29°C / 84°F)

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.
