The Bequia region
Bequia is still the same as it has always been, incredibly friendly, unpretentious and quirky. The traditions of boat building, fishing and whaling endure and there is yet to be any sign of high rise hotels or commercial chains. A strong sailing culture exists in these islands with both the local and international scene, and most visitors still arrive and depart by sea.
Yachts from all over the world are routinely at anchor in the bay and at night their mast lights twinkle in the harbour adding to the atmosphere of the eclectic mix of bars and restaurants along the harbour walkway.
Days here can be relaxed or full of discovery and action. There are several beaches to explore and large areas of forested hills and valleys with trails that may lead to a deserted cove or cliff top. Sailing day trips to the pristine Tobago Cays or affluent Mustique and Canouan Islands are popular ways to pass the time.
Water taxis can be hired to take you to and from the harbour and the beaches, and diving is available at a choice of Dive schools. You can Windsurf in the safety of the wide harbour and there are some marvellous sites for snorkelling here and in the Grenadines. There is also the opportunity to take a Grenadine island cruise on a yacht, big game fishing or nature tours by boat.
Ferries ply their way back and forth to St Vincent, an hour away where a wealth of opportunity exists to explore Kingstown, a working Georgian town with lots of bustle, markets and local atmosphere. Walk up the Volcano or along the many trails, visit Montreal Gardens , or visit the wilder windward coast.
For such a small island there are a surprising and varied number of quirky restaurants and bars with marvellous seafood, live music and great atmosphere overlooking the the sea.
Lower Bay is Bequia’s longest beach,this beach of golden sand is generous in width, and, since it is on the leeward side of the island, the water is usually calm and clear. There are a number of small restaurants nearby which can be convenient for taking a break from the sun. Close to the middle of this stretch of sand a small reef forms a natural pool – ideal for young paddlers. Lower bay is the host of the Bequia Blues music festival in January and some of the Easter Regatta races start from Lower Bay.
