City break in Grenadines. Active leisure ideas for Grenadines - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Moonhole in Bequia Active volcano La Soufrière (1234m high) – which is currently not – can be justly called one of the most fascinating sights of the island. It’s located in the north part of Saint Vincent. You can get to the foot of the volcano through the ancient centre of the sugar industry in Georgetown and the active banana plantation in Orange Hill. By the way, Orange Hill is a pretty interesting place. You can see there how this extraordinary herb grows and, what is more, you can learn something new about how bananas were cultivated here on the islands throughout different periods of time. So, even though you can just climb the volcano on your own, still we would advise you to ask an experienced guide to accompany you.
Saint Vincent is a perfect place for children who actually enjoy beauty of unspoiled nature. Here you can find literally everything: clean magnificent volcanic beaches, tropical forests, and … Open
Even though you would hardly get lost here, a good guide would tell you a bunch of interesting facts about the island’s nature. And it’s actually highly diversified: bamboo groves, tropical rain forests, heavy bush covers, and lava fields change the landscape along your track. Moreover, there is a breath-taking view of Saint Vincent and the adjacent islands from the top of the «fiery mountain» which essentially created the island. There is the famous plunge pool on the volcano’s southern slope. What is more, if you’ll have time after your hiking to La Soufrière, then you can have a walk around the nearby fishing villages. Kestel, Layou, Barroualie, and Chateaubelair with its black beaches, volcanic sand, and nice colourful small houses are the second most popular points of the island after the volcano.
One of the most well-known local beaches is Village Beach (or Vila Beach) which is located in Indian Bay. You can find everything you would need on any casual beach there: changing booths, loungers, sunshades, lifeguard towers, water equipment rentals, and boatmen who would be glad to give you a ride on a banana boat or water skies. Clean water of the local water area is perfect for snorkeling. In addition, you can rent a boat or a catamaran and take a ride to the neighboring Young Island. You could not only have an ideal romantic date just for two there but also visit the National wildlife park and enjoy its magnificent gardens. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
The local cuisine is a kind of a mix of various Amerindian, English, French, and Indian cooking traditions. Due to the great number of tourists coming here, there are lots of casual … Open
One more idea for is to have a walk around the most popular track which goes along thorough Buccament Valley and the Vermont Nature Trail. The track starts eight kilometers far from Kingstown. You would really enjoy gorgeous views of tropical forests, banana plantations, lots of colourful birds, volcanic spurs, and even a crater of an extinct volcano. In case if you want to also take a look at incredible Falls of Baleine (more than 18 meters high), then you should go afoot straight to the highway. The track is in the north-western part of the coast. Volcanic soils of Fenton and Marriacu valleys are quite peculiar attractions as well. Here old forests alternate nutmeg, cassava, and cocoa farms. Spectacular Montreal Gardens are also found in Marriacu Valley.
Paradise Sunset You’d have a chance to see lovely bushes of bougainvillea, red jasmine, and hibiscus only in the period from December to August. The garden is closed on Sundays and for national holidays. Besides, you can visit the deserted wild beach of Wallilabou Bay. There are also waters of Wallilabou Falls falling down from the 4,5 height. Small beach of Buccament Bay is pretty nice too. Moreover, you definitely have to come and see the Black Point Tunnel which was built in 1815 by slaves in order to transport goods from northern plantations to Kingstown. There is also the Owia Salt Pond just nearby. Those who are fond of diving actually should try to dive in Owia Bay as you can enjoy seeing glorious underwater caves there. There is also one more peculiar rocky beach here on the island called Argyle.
Planning a trip to Saint Vincent, you have to remember that it’s not a good idea to start conversations about colonies and the way Europeans treat locals here. Descendants of … Open
In addition, don’t forget to visit Botanic Gardens St. Vincent in Kingstown. They were based in 1762 as a commercial nursery-garden for plants which were brought here by William Bligh, famous traveler. Today the territory of the gardens occupies about eight hectares and about 450 species of plants grow there. Moreover, there is the aviary there too, so you can see the St. Vincent’s parrot – the local national symbol. Furthermore, there are several diving centres in the capital where you can learn everything about diving even starting from the basic stages. You’ll be also helped to choose proper equipment for your exciting journey. In addition, all the local night clubs and bars are in the capital as well. Or you can, for example, rent a boat if you want to try fishing in the open sea or get a marine excursion around the island.
