Dear Visitors,<br />

Welcome to our very special island!<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> was recently described in the press as “the perfect Caribbean Island”<br />

and few who have visited would disagree with this assessment! Far from being<br />

just another Caribbean island resort, it is instead a big little island with friendly<br />

independent-minded people, lush green hills, fertile valleys, stunning views and<br />

above all, a unique, magical charm that captivates everyone.<br />

During the high season, don’t miss our annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks<br />

Celebration, the <strong>Bequia</strong> Tourism Association’s annual four-day <strong>Bequia</strong> Mount<br />

Gay Music Fest at the end of January and of course the world famous <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

Easter Regatta.<br />

While you are here, we hope you will visit our <strong>Bequia</strong> Tourism office, located<br />

at the end of the main jetty in Port Elizabeth. This cool haven is the ideal place<br />

to get advice and information about <strong>Bequia</strong>, pick up copies of invaluable free<br />

publications such as <strong>Holiday</strong> <strong>Bequia</strong>, and “<strong>Bequia</strong> This Week”, purchase stamps,<br />

postcards, water and phone cards as well as souvenir items.<br />

The <strong>Bequia</strong> Tourism Association is committed to making <strong>Bequia</strong> even more<br />

“perfect” for everyone and we work hard to achieve this goal. Our official<br />

website www.bequiatourism.com is constantly updated and is the number one<br />

online source of information about the island.<br />

We hope that you enjoy reading this latest edition of <strong>Holiday</strong> <strong>Bequia</strong>, and most<br />

BEQUIA EASTER REGATTA<br />

APRIL 2 – 6, 2015<br />

Thirty-three unbroken years of dedicated<br />

direction by the all-volunteer <strong>Bequia</strong> Sailing<br />

Club has seen the legendary <strong>Bequia</strong> Easter<br />

Regatta evolve from a small, local sailing<br />

get-together into the biggest sporting and<br />

tourism event in the country.<br />

Success breeds success, and with the vital<br />

support of its sponsors, the regatta has<br />

continued to grow. Regatta 2013 saw the<br />

Sailing Club celebrate a record-breaking<br />

entry of 54 yachts and 29 local “doubleenders”,<br />

emphatically affirming <strong>Bequia</strong>’s status<br />

as the largest yacht regatta in the southern<br />

Caribbean. In fact, <strong>Bequia</strong>’s four-day Easter<br />

Regatta is renowned the world over for its<br />

unique blend of thrilling local boat racing,<br />

exciting, superbly-run yacht racing and the<br />

warm, small-island hospitality that is <strong>Bequia</strong>’s<br />

trademark.<br />

On the yacht side, the <strong>Bequia</strong> Easter<br />

Regatta’s CSA-accredited series of races<br />

continue to draw sailors from near and far to<br />

take part in this hugely popular event. Yachts<br />

4


are divided into Racing Class, two Cruising<br />

Classes (including one for live-aboards and<br />

cruisers who are not regular competitors),<br />

and two One-Design Classes. The biggest<br />

draw in recent years has been <strong>Bequia</strong>’s J/24<br />

One-Design Class whose six-race series in<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> also decides the annual J24 Southern<br />

Caribbean Championship.<br />

The regatta’s eagerly anticipated local boat<br />

races draw ever greater crowds of followers<br />

each year. The design of the traditional<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> double-ender or “two-bow” boat is<br />

based on that of the 26-foot New England<br />

whaleboats which regularly visited the<br />

Grenadine waters during the first half of the<br />

19 th century. Today’s double-ender boats<br />

are now built purely to race, but within the<br />

fleet there is one notable exception. The fully<br />

restored and rebuilt 140-year old Iron Duke -<br />

cornerstone of “Old Bill” Wallace’s legendary<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> whaling fleet in the late 19 th century<br />

- continues to proudly compete in the regatta<br />

to this day.<br />

Lay Day Sunday is when most yachtsmen<br />

take the chance to relax and enjoy the start<br />

of Sunday’s local boat races and the everpopular<br />

Sandcastle Competition, or just<br />

to chill out with the landlubbers on one of<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong>’s many beautiful beaches. A fearless<br />

few however choose to compete in Easter<br />

Sunday’s “Round the Island” single-handed<br />

Yacht Race - the ultimate seamanship<br />

challenge for the solo sailor and his yacht.<br />

Easter in <strong>Bequia</strong> marks a major peak in the<br />

tourism season. Hotels, villas and apartments<br />

are booked far in advance, restaurants<br />

and bars prepare to welcome hundreds of<br />

visitors, and a variety of shore-based activities<br />

are organised. Regatta fever is in the air and<br />

just about everyone is infected with the<br />

excitement of being in <strong>Bequia</strong> to celebrate<br />

tradition and excellence in sailing on the<br />

island’s biggest weekend of the year.<br />

Where to Stay<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> has every type of accommodation to<br />

offer, always well run and well kept, with<br />

that special relaxed atmosphere and personal,<br />

friendly service which reflects the spirit of the<br />

island and its people. <strong>Bequia</strong> tends to attract<br />

the visitor who prefers the tropical delights and<br />

laid back living of the smaller islands, where the<br />

beaches are secluded and there are no highrise<br />

hotels to mar the scenic views. Thankfully<br />

the island has not attracted any so-called<br />

five-star ‘luxury’ commercial hotels; instead,<br />

the wonderful, friendly accommodation ranges<br />

from stylish four-star and comfortable three-star<br />

hotels to well-appointed luxury villas and budget<br />

guest houses which include breakfast and dinner<br />

featuring real home-cooking. The larger beach<br />

front hotels also have first class restaurants and<br />

bars, offering evening entertainment, a full range<br />

of water sports, and other sports such as tennis.<br />

Please note that a 15% government tax is added<br />

to hotel rates plus a 10% service charge. Credit<br />

cards are widely accepted, but it is always wise<br />

to double check when booking.<br />

Dana Gillespie<br />

Top quality acts with broad-based appeal<br />

for all musical tastes at a variety of venues,<br />

consistently excellent presentation and<br />

outstanding support from Title Sponsor Mount<br />

Gay Rum and other local sponsors have all<br />

led to <strong>Bequia</strong>’s unique musical event proudly<br />

reaching its twelfth anniversary this year.<br />

Built around the hugely popular annual<br />

“one-night-only” <strong>Bequia</strong> performance of Basil<br />

Charles’ Mustique Blues Festival showcasing<br />

Dana Gillespie and her London Blues Band<br />

with outstanding guest artistes, the <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

Tourism Association’s <strong>Bequia</strong> Music Fest<br />

consistently earns rave reviews.<br />

The event, held over four days at the end of<br />

January, is well established as a major fixture<br />

on the season’s calendar, with a loyal following<br />

of regular visitors captivated by the informal,<br />

up-close-and-personal atmosphere and the<br />

range of truly top quality music. Yachtsman<br />

put it on their itineraries, visitors book their<br />

holidays to catch it and spread the word to<br />

others and residents of <strong>Bequia</strong> and St. Vincent<br />

can’t wait for January to come around.<br />

The main venue for <strong>Bequia</strong> Music Fest is at<br />

‘De Reef’ right on the beach at Lower Bay, with<br />

performances on Friday and Saturday night and<br />

all afternoon on Sunday.<br />

Other venues showcase artistes on a more<br />

intimate scale throughout the weekend<br />

including opening night with a steel pan<br />

orchestra at the Frangipani Hotel on Thursday<br />

and a Saturday afternoon “Blues and Jazz Jam<br />

and Lime” by the beach at <strong>Bequia</strong> Beach Hotel<br />

in Friendship Bay.<br />

Last year, the exciting young Bajan band<br />

‘Nj3O’, UK chart toppers ‘Cover Drive’ and<br />

soca giants ‘Soka Kartel’ drew huge crowds<br />

to Saturday night’s six-hour show, keeping the<br />

audience on their feet till after 2am.<br />

You can be sure that <strong>Bequia</strong>’s 12 th<br />

anniversary Music Fest in January 2015 will be<br />

another winning formula, with old and new<br />

friends coming together to create a very special<br />

weekend of great music, great performances<br />

and great vibes!<br />

Shopping<br />

Local fashion<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong>’s primary shopping area is in and<br />

around the island’s capital, Port Elizabeth,<br />

where flowers bloom in planters and roadside<br />

gardens and small brightly painted stores<br />

abound along the waterfront. This delightful<br />

heart of the island offers every facility with<br />

a simple, intimate charm and traditional<br />

hospitality for which <strong>Bequia</strong> is famous.<br />

Just about everything in Port Elizabeth is<br />

located on its one central, shoreside, main<br />

street reaching the fishing village of Hamilton<br />

in the north, and, just on from the town’s<br />

centre, along the Belmont Walkway which<br />

borders the south shore of Admiralty Bay.<br />

Shops, boutiques, a pharmacy, grocery stores,<br />

covered markets selling fresh fruit, vegetables<br />

and freshly caught fish, souvenir stalls,<br />

restaurants, cafés and bars, banks, the Post<br />

Office, Customs and Immigration, the Police<br />

Station (off Back Street) and the BTA office –<br />

are all within easy walking distance.<br />

Just off the Main Ferry Dock are Souvenirs our new galore<br />

public washrooms and showers.<br />

The <strong>Bequia</strong> Book Shop is located in the St.<br />

Mary’s Anglican churchyard. Besides a good<br />

selection of paperback and hardcover books,<br />

it stocks postcards, courtesy flags, nautical<br />

charts, <strong>Bequia</strong> Ordnance Survey maps and art<br />

work. A cool place to browse and find that<br />

special something. Just off of Front Street is the<br />

charming Sweety Bird, which offers fresh, local<br />

juices and simple lunches.<br />

The pretty light blue painted wooden<br />

building across from the dingy dock, Sail, Relax,<br />

Explore, carries a full range of beach and<br />

swim gear, including handmade canvas items,<br />

hammocks and traditional island maps.<br />

With colourful streamers billowing from<br />

their windows, the breezy one-stop boutique<br />

Local Color can easily be found up some<br />

brightly painted outside stairs. This popular,<br />

inviting store offers delightful informal clothing<br />

including top quality t-shirts, caps and sandals,<br />

30<br />

swimwear, beach accessories, sundresses and<br />

casual wear, great gifts and souvenirs, postcards<br />

and art work.<br />

From Local Color, continue on your leisurely<br />

stroll along the start of the Belmont Walkway<br />

– a delightful, partly shaded water’s edge<br />

path which winds alongside the bay, linking<br />

shops, restaurants, hotels and bars. Just past<br />

the Frangipani you will find Whaleboner Bar<br />

which has a boutique attached, Gingerbread<br />

Café, Vintages which is a new wine shop in<br />

the Gingerbread building and Maranne’s Ice<br />

Cream Parlour. A little further on are the<br />

gaily painted premises of Dive <strong>Bequia</strong>, <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

Dive Adventurer, Mac’s Pizzeria and then you<br />

come to the Fig Tree Boutique & Gift Shop<br />

which offers a selection of local handicraft and<br />

other interesting items.<br />

Returning to the town centre, the BTA<br />

office, located at the end of the main ferry<br />

jetty is the place to buy water, phone cards,<br />

stamps, <strong>Bequia</strong> Sailing Club souvenirs and<br />

postcards. You can also pick up your extra<br />

copies of <strong>Holiday</strong> <strong>Bequia</strong>, as well as the<br />

invaluable weekly guide to what’s on in <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

– <strong>Bequia</strong> This Week.<br />

Opposite the BTA is the Bayshore Mall<br />

– a small shopping centre which contains<br />

some dozen shops including Going Places<br />

Travel, an ice-cream parlour, stationery store,


delicatessen, and two boutiques. Further north,<br />

past the Revenue Office and Post Office, is<br />

the covered fish and vegetable market on<br />

the water’s edge, with its own dinghy dock.<br />

There are also a number of small t-shirt, casual<br />

wear and gift boutiques here, plus a bakery<br />

outlet with delicious fresh bread and baked<br />

goods and a small bar. An ancient almond<br />

tree provides welcome shade inside the<br />

market courtyard. Opposite the market is the<br />

Island Style boutique that carries bali-style<br />

furniture and gifts. Upstairs is Sunset Bar and<br />

Restaurant and to the back is the <strong>Bequia</strong> Food<br />

Store and Lulley’s Tackle Shop.<br />

On the side street between the gas station<br />

and the vegetable market is the Oasis Art<br />

Gallery showcasing a collection of locally<br />

made work including Kingsley ‘Prop’ King<br />

model boats that sail, and paintings by artist<br />

and curator L.D. Lucy now located at the back<br />

of the Porthole Restaurant. Agnetta Nanton<br />

shows her beautiful and highly individual<br />

batik designs in her garden boutique. Fine<br />

Things sells colourful home accessories on<br />

Back Street diagonally across from Doris Fresh<br />

Food.<br />

As an age-old seafaring island, <strong>Bequia</strong> caters<br />

exceptionally well for visiting yachts. There are<br />

a number of first-rate shipwrights, carpenters,<br />

repair specialists, sail lofts and general marine<br />

and fishing supply shops in and around Port<br />

Elizabeth, and a varied selection of grocery<br />

stores and delicatessens which cater for both<br />

the simple necessities and the most refined<br />

gourmet tastes. Deliveries to your yacht or to<br />

your rental villa can easily be arranged.<br />

The building of model boats is a <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

speciality – even H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has<br />

an example in her collection. You can see both<br />

the intricate workmanship in progress, and<br />

the fabulous models of schooners, brightlycoloured<br />

yachts, traditional ‘double enders’ and<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> whaleboats. Walk past the vegetable<br />

market to find first Mauvin’s Model Boat<br />

Shop (ask to see the workshop outside, under<br />

the breadfruit tree), and then a little further<br />

along the road, Sargeant Brothers Model<br />

Boats, with its busy workshop right on the<br />

premises. Take your time to look, choose, and<br />

then to look again. The quality and detail is<br />

quite magnificent and the finished models true<br />

works of art.<br />

Upstairs in Grenadine Yacht & Equipment<br />

(GYE) wireless services can be found and a<br />

wide variety of computer accessories at ACS<br />

Computer Services, who are also the DHL<br />

agents.<br />

Fresh coconut water<br />

Sightseeing<br />

Frangipani, Belmont Walkway<br />

Port Elizabeth<br />

Pick up an island map from the BTA Office<br />

at the end of the main jetty and set out to<br />

discover the delights of <strong>Bequia</strong>.<br />

Wander along the quaint waterfront at Port<br />

Elizabeth with its bars, cafés and fascinating<br />

shops spread out along the coastal main<br />

street. Watch a fabulous sunset from a<br />

beachside bar or café.<br />

Just a few minutes stroll from the centre is<br />

the lovely St. Mary’s Anglican Church built of<br />

local limestone and imported ballast bricks.<br />

The church was erected in 1829 on the site<br />

of an earlier structure which was destroyed<br />

by a hurricane in 1798, and houses intriguing<br />

memorial tablets recording the lives of some<br />

of <strong>Bequia</strong>’s earliest settlers.<br />

Continuing on, you will find the meandering<br />

waterfront Belmont Walkway, which has<br />

recently been restored through the fund<br />

raising efforts of the group, Action <strong>Bequia</strong>.<br />

The next fund raising goal is to extend the<br />

walkway into a coastal trail to Princess<br />

Margaret Beach. An interesting and cool<br />

stroll along this edge of Admiralty Bay will<br />

reward you with more unusual shops, dive<br />

shops, bars, cafés and excellent restaurants.<br />

In the opposite direction, taking the main<br />

road north out of Port Elizabeth past the<br />

Revenue Office and Post Office, covered<br />

t-shirt market, vegetable market and small<br />

shops, you will come to <strong>Bequia</strong>’s two<br />

Model Boat-Builders’ Workshops (See also<br />

Shopping on page 31). Watch these craftsmen<br />

continuing your own boat on commission and<br />

have shipped it to you.<br />

A few yards before the Hairoun Beer Depot,<br />

one block in from the main road, is the <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

Maritime Museum. Opened by Lawson<br />

Sargeant of Sargeant Bros. Model Boats, and<br />

son of one of the great <strong>Bequia</strong> boatbuilding<br />

families, it details the peak period of ship<br />

building in <strong>Bequia</strong> with old photos, boatbuilding<br />

families’ memorabilia, and replicas of some of<br />

the great schooners built on the island.<br />

Continuing along this road, on Admiralty<br />

Bay’s north shore and through the village of<br />

Hamilton, you will come to the site of the 18th<br />

century Hamilton Battery, located high above<br />

Admiralty Bay, which guarded the harbour<br />

from attack. From this elevated lookout point<br />

there are wonderful views of the harbour and<br />

across the bay. Enjoy the nature trail around<br />

the point and spot native birds and reptiles.<br />

If you would rather not walk or hike in such<br />

tropical climes, you can always rent a jeep, or<br />

arrange a taxi tour with one of the open back<br />

vans under the Almond Tree and explore the<br />

island at your leisure. There is much more<br />

than just the beautiful scenery to discover.<br />

Ask at the BTA office for more information<br />

including fares.<br />

32


Arts & Crafts<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> has always been rightly famous for<br />

its boatbuilding (both large and very small)<br />

but the island is today also rich in many<br />

other creative skills. Small stalls scattered<br />

along the waterfront in the harbour offer an<br />

amazing variety of local talent from paintings,<br />

needlecraft, crochet, macramé, carvings, black<br />

coral jewellery, papier-mâché and scrimshaw, to<br />

culinary items – homemade preserves, sweets<br />

and cakes. Throughout the island there are<br />

studios and galleries to visit and artists to meet.<br />

(Some studios can be visited by appointment<br />

only, so check with BTA office for details).<br />

If you want to see artists at work, stop<br />

by and visit Claude Victorine at her atelier<br />

in Lower Bay where her hand-painted silks,<br />

pareos, cushion-covers and wall hangings are<br />

on display. Also in Lower Bay on the road<br />

near the beach, you can see sculpted whales<br />

and other hand carvings from local woods<br />

at the Arts & Crafts Café. In Port Elizabeth,<br />

behind the Port Hole Restaurant you can<br />

visit Oasis Art Gallery. Agnetta Nanton<br />

shows her beautiful and highly individual batik<br />

designs in her garden boutique and Pinkie<br />

Vaughan-Richards’ mixed media crafts are<br />

on display and for sale at Island Style. On<br />

your way to Spring, you must make a stop<br />

at the Whaleboner Silkscreen Factory and<br />

Boutique.<br />

Other Points of Interest<br />

For something completely different, and<br />

fascinating for all the family, take the time to<br />

visit The Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary (www.<br />

turtles.bequia.net) located in the rugged,<br />

northeastern part of the island, and reached by<br />

continuing on the road north to Park Bay. The<br />

drive is scenic and will take you past Industry<br />

Bay and over the hillside into Park Bay where<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong>n Orton G. ‘Brother’ King has spent<br />

most of each day since August 1995 tending<br />

his beloved and endangered Hawksbill turtles.<br />

A retired professional skin-diving fisherman,<br />

Brother King is a committed, informed and<br />

very entertaining individual. His greatest<br />

pleasure is to give you a fully guided tour and<br />

explain his mission to others. Responsible for<br />

having increased the seriously dwindling turtle<br />

population in <strong>Bequia</strong>, his project is purely a<br />

selfless, dedicated passion and with no financial<br />

reward. You will be made to feel a very<br />

welcome visitor to this worthy and educational<br />

sanctuary. There is an entry fee of EC$10 or<br />

US$5 which goes towards the upkeep and<br />

running costs of the sanctuary. Any donations<br />

over and above this amount are welcomed.<br />

Imagine the amount of fish required to feed<br />

200 hungry growing turtles!<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> has a long history as a whaling nation<br />

and the Whaling Museum in La Pompe is<br />

worth a visit.<br />

The extraordinary, privately-owned complex<br />

of stone dwellings known as Moonhole is<br />

located on the western tip of the island. Built<br />

in the 1950s by American Tom Johnston, the<br />

complex is an internationally famous architectural<br />

landmark. The Moonhole rock arch and<br />

compound are not open to the public and<br />

may only be viewed from the sea. Please reduce<br />

speed and do not anchor off Moonhole<br />

to avoid damaging the fragile marine environment.<br />

Best Beaches<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> is blessed by an encirclement of<br />

glorious stretches of sandy beaches, some<br />

secluded and all clean and uncrowded. Bathe<br />

in the clear, safe waters, perfect for swimming,<br />

snorkelling, sailing, diving and other water<br />

sports.<br />

Princess Margaret Beach is a lovely<br />

ribbon of golden sand, just down from Port<br />

Elizabeth. The beach was formerly known as<br />

Tony Gibbons Beach; until Princess Margaret<br />

enjoyed a dip there in 1958. Now featuring<br />

Jack’s Bar, with its private jetty, it can be<br />

reached either by water taxi, or by a very<br />

steep road/track descending from the main<br />

road.<br />

There is a cliff pathway linking Princess<br />

Margaret beach to the popular, expansive<br />

Lower Bay. Fringed by fishing boats and nets,<br />

<strong>Holiday</strong> <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

33


Sightseeing<br />

its casual atmosphere is further enhanced<br />

by a number of very good, and reasonably<br />

priced bars and restaurants – including the<br />

world famous De Reef with its popular<br />

Sunday afternoon music jam and Keegan’s<br />

with its delicious, reasonably-priced homecooking<br />

and Saturday night barbecue –<br />

making Lower Bay a favourite location both<br />

during the day and in the evening. La Plage is<br />

the newest addition to Lower Bay, a relaxed<br />

liming spot to for the who’s who of <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

and a great place to hang out on the beach.<br />

There is wonderfully safe swimming and<br />

snorkelling, with a natural reef paddling pool<br />

for youngsters.<br />

Friendship Bay, only a short ride from town<br />

on the south side of the island, offers a long,<br />

wide sweep of beach and excellent conditions<br />

for diving, sailing and snorkelling. Also on<br />

Friendship Bay is the <strong>Bequia</strong> Beach Hotel’s<br />

main restaurant, Blue Tropic, and the Bagatelle<br />

Restaurant & Bar on the beach.<br />

Between the bays of Friendship and Spring<br />

is Hope Bay, with its remote beach. Here<br />

the rather shallow waters and the long lines<br />

of breakers from the Atlantic Ocean make<br />

the spot ideal for first-rate body surfing and<br />

Homemade <strong>Bequia</strong> jams for sale!<br />

Lower Bay<br />

windsurfing. However, the strong undertow<br />

demands that this is for the more experienced<br />

surfers only. With no hotels or bars in the<br />

vicinity, take a friend, something to drink and<br />

maybe a picnic. Look for signposts or ask for<br />

directions.<br />

Along the main road out of the harbour<br />

is the romantic and secluded shallow beach<br />

at Spring Bay, behind which are acres of tall<br />

palm trees and a working Caribbean plantation<br />

which form part of Firefly Plantation Hotel<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong>. A guided tour of the plantation<br />

and ruined sugar mill lasts approximately 45<br />

minutes. You can sample fruit and vegetables<br />

in season, crush your own sugar cane juice<br />

and learn about coconuts, bananas and various<br />

herbs and flowers; bookings suggested and<br />

children welcome.<br />

Just north of Spring is the inaptly named<br />

Industry Bay. But fear not, there is no heavy<br />

industry here or anywhere else on the island.<br />

It’s a glorious palm-fringed beach, wonderful<br />

for snorkelling, and with surf particularly suitable<br />

for surfing beginners. A word of caution<br />

– there can be a quite strong undercurrent at<br />

times. Lastly, a short road walk from Industry<br />

Bay over the headland will bring you to Park,<br />

with its palm shaded, isolated beach, home to<br />

the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary. Not so great<br />

for swimming, but a wonderful point from<br />

which to explore on foot the undeveloped<br />

northern reaches of the island.<br />

Taxi Fares<br />

Taxi rides are inexpensive and as all the drivers<br />

are justifiably proud of their island, they will<br />

take you to the most interesting, scenic and<br />

unusual places, all in a leisurely three-hour ride,<br />

or tailored to suit your own time requirements.<br />

Most vehicles are radio operated on VHF 68<br />

and will do airport and ferry pick-ups and<br />

drop-offs.<br />

A recommended list of the local taxi fares<br />

is available from the BTA office. Visitors are<br />

advised to agree the fare in advance as well as<br />

determining whether the charge is in EC or US<br />

dollars.<br />

Yacht Charters and Off-island Day Tours<br />

The vessels in our listing offer a variety of day<br />

trips, private charters and excursions.<br />

In the course of a <strong>Bequia</strong> holiday, it is well<br />

worth exploring the surrounding Grenadine<br />

islands, and not surprisingly, sailing is the<br />

most popular choice of most visitors. With<br />

regular trade winds, limitless visibility and<br />

the Caribbean Sea’s tidal movements, the<br />

Grenadines offer some of the best blue water<br />

sailing to be found anywhere in the world. So,<br />

for something luxurious, cruising at your own<br />

pace, sightseeing around the shores of <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

and to other nearby islands, don’t miss the<br />

wide range of fully-crewed yachts available for<br />

day, overnight or term charters. There are a<br />

number of notable yacht charter operations<br />

on <strong>Bequia</strong> and on nearby St. Vincent.<br />

Whether for one day or more, these allinclusive<br />

trips to the fabulous Grenadines<br />

on first class boats are all available at very<br />

reasonable rates. Their skippers are mostly<br />

local seafarers, with a wealth of sailing and<br />

chartering experience and an intimate<br />

knowledge and love of the region. A private<br />

charter offers just that – privacy, plus superb<br />

cooking, relaxation and the opportunity to<br />

<strong>Holiday</strong> <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

35


Sightseeing<br />

take whichever route you choose.<br />

The large mother-island of St. Vincent is<br />

only nine miles north of <strong>Bequia</strong>, with more<br />

than enough to keep any day-visitor busy. St.<br />

Vincent can be reached via charter flight from<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong>, but most visitors prefer to take the<br />

inexpensive hour-long ferry trip from Port<br />

Elizabeth to Kingstown. Choose to sit up on<br />

deck and take in the sea air and scenery (and<br />

maybe see a school of dolphins) or travel<br />

inside in comfortable air-conditioned saloons.<br />

There is much to see and do in St.Vincent,<br />

and some of the best of it is so remote that<br />

it’s worth spending an overnight if time<br />

is available. For example, the spectacular<br />

La Soufrière Volcano, slumbering but still<br />

steaming (the last major eruption was in<br />

1979) requires a four-wheel drive vehicle and<br />

then a demanding but rewarding three hour<br />

hike to the rim. Magnificent unspoilt nature<br />

trails are a hiker’s and naturalist’s paradise,<br />

and Dark View and Baleine Falls are not to be<br />

missed.<br />

A must visit, especially on Saturday<br />

mornings, is the vibrant and colourful<br />

fruit and vegetable market in downtown<br />

Kingstown.<br />

St. Vincent’s Botanical Gardens are one<br />

of the oldest in the Western Hemisphere.<br />

They were founded in 1765, originally for<br />

the production of herbs, spices and plants<br />

for medicinal purposes. The 20 acres of<br />

indigenous and imported tropical trees,<br />

shrubs, fruits and flowers are part of the<br />

National Trust and run by the Forestry<br />

Commission. Among the sights is a 230-year<br />

old baobab tree, planted when the garden<br />

was opened as well as a third generation<br />

breadfruit tree, a sucker from the original<br />

plant brought by Captain William Bligh (of<br />

“Bounty” fame) in 1793.<br />

Just a few minutes away via air charter, or<br />

after a leisurely two hour sail, is the island<br />

of Mustique. Whichever way you choose<br />

to get there, it’s a fascinating day trip to this<br />

privately owned island, famous as a hideaway<br />

for British Royals and international celebrities.<br />

Stop for a drink and/or lunch at one of<br />

Mustique’s famous bars or restaurants.<br />

There are many smaller islands in the<br />

Grenadines – all with beautiful beaches and<br />

stunning turquoise waters. Some, such as<br />

Palm Island and Petit St. Vincent, are privately<br />

owned resort islands, but day, overnight<br />

and weekend visitors are welcome when<br />

accommodation is available. Canouan has a<br />

luxury resort and golf course; Mayreau has<br />

600 inhabitants in a hilltop village and one of<br />

the most beautiful beaches at Salt Whistle<br />

Bay, and of course the Tobago Cays are quite<br />

unforgettable. Union Island is well worth a<br />

visit too!<br />

They can all be reached via sailing charters,<br />

ferries or, in some cases, air charters. Enquire<br />

at your hotel or at the BTA office for more<br />

details.<br />

Land & Watersports<br />

Fishing off the dock<br />

The sea has historically played a major part in<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong>’s life and, today, equally appeals to the<br />

visitor. The beckoning crystal clear waters delight<br />

the senses and offer an abundance of treasures<br />

particularly those just waiting to be discovered in<br />

the magical undersea world.<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> is off the better known Caribbean<br />

dive site paths and consequently the reefs are<br />

less disturbed and the marine life richer in<br />

variety. Part of the leeward side of the island<br />

is a designated marine park. Spear fishing,<br />

anchoring, traps and nets are prohibited.<br />

Both experienced divers and those who have<br />

never donned tank, mask and fins before<br />

have the opportunity to explore a superb,<br />

seven mile reef which fringes the island,<br />

where the Atlantic butts up to the Caribbean.<br />

This is very strictly protected and under no<br />

circumstances can even dead coral be taken.<br />

There are excellent dive sites around <strong>Bequia</strong><br />

and the nearby islands, all easily accessible<br />

within 15 minutes by boat. For those who<br />

have never dived before, <strong>Bequia</strong> is the ideal<br />

destination to take a resort diving course.<br />

There is a large variety of marine life to excite<br />

beginners in their<br />

shallow dives, or simply to enjoy some of the<br />

best snorkelling in the Caribbean. There are<br />

some great drift dives with tunnels, caverns,<br />

walls, overhangs and hollows, all resplendent<br />

with varied coral formations, teeming with<br />

reef fish as well as lobsters, shrimp, crabs,<br />

moray eels, barracudas, angelfish, jacks,<br />

seahorses, groupers and the odd nurse shark.<br />

Terrific wreck dives and night diving are also<br />

available. Dive courses leading to certification<br />

are available.<br />

Snorkelling trips are especially good<br />

along the coast to Northwest Point and<br />

in the protected windward side waters of<br />

Friendship Bay. Snorkelling is also safe off any<br />

beach where swimming is enjoyed.<br />

Sports fishing is a popular pastime<br />

providing both excellent sport and a delicious<br />

meal! Spanish mackerel, barracuda, marlin,<br />

42<br />

mahi mahi, tuna, bonito, and kingfish are<br />

just some of the fish available. Hand lining<br />

and trolling are the only methods of fishing<br />

permitted to visitors and catches are<br />

restricted to only enough for your personal<br />

use. No fishing is allowed in protected areas,<br />

particularly the northeast coast and Devil’s<br />

Table. Spearfishing is strictly forbidden to<br />

non-residents throughout St. Vincent & the<br />

Grenadines.<br />

Sailing and sailing skills form a great part of<br />

most <strong>Bequia</strong>ns’ lifestyles. From an early age,<br />

they learn to man the double-enders, both<br />

for pleasure and for earning a livelihood –<br />

skills passed on from father to son and now<br />

via the BYATS (<strong>Bequia</strong> Youth and the Sea)<br />

Programme sponsored by the Rotary Club<br />

of <strong>Bequia</strong>. <strong>Holiday</strong>makers can charter boats<br />

for their sailing pleasure, with or without a<br />

skipper.<br />

You are, of course, welcome to use your<br />

sail-boards and to take full advantage of our<br />

glorious waters and ideal winds.<br />

Jetskis and other powered ‘recreational’<br />

vehicles are strictly forbidden.<br />

If you would rather stay dry, <strong>Bequia</strong> also<br />

offers tennis at various facilities.<br />

<strong>Bequia</strong> is the perfect island to explore on<br />

foot. Starting from any hotel or guest house, a<br />

leisurely walk of a few hours will bring rewards<br />

of beautiful scenery, wonderful flora and fauna,<br />

opportunities to meet friendly <strong>Bequia</strong>ns, and<br />

the chance to discover some of the island’s<br />

interesting little watering holes for local snacks


and thirst-quenching drinks. There are many<br />

old trails and footpaths throughout the island.<br />

Please check with the BTA who will be happy<br />

to assist in recommending a guide.<br />
