our island

Bequia (pr. Bek-way).

 

Part of the Grenadine Island chain, 9 miles west of Mustique and Just 7 sq. miles in size. With it’s warm climate and average temperature range of 75 to 85 degrees (24 to 29c) throughout the year, Bequia is the perfect small Caribbean Island we all dream of.

 

Friendly and welcoming people, simple unhurried lifestyle, beautiful beaches and natural beauty make it one of the few Caribbean Islands to have retained it’s original character and old world charm.

 

Any time of the year is wonderful here. There is no bad time to visit being far enough south to avoid hurricanes. Some of the best times to visit are during the summer months of June, July and August when all our beautiful flora is in full bloom, the fruit crops are prolific and we are knee deep in mangoes!

 

With its centuries old traditions of inter-island shipping and trading, Bequians have been welcoming visitors to their shores for generations. Don’t be surprised if you are met with a warm hello by complete strangers you pass on the road.
