Beautiful and blissful, Princess Margaret Beach is as good as it gets. Located just around the corner from Port Elizabeth, the golden sand is flanked by palm and sea grape trees - the perfect spot for a snooze in the shade. Wake yourself up with a refreshing swim in the deep, calm waters.
The capital of St Vincent features the stereotypical sights and sounds of a bustling Caribbean town. Vibrant music, car horns, and street vendors can be heard through Kingston's narrow streets, steep hills, and covered walkways. This buzzing community is its most vibrant on Saturday mornings, when a week's worth of fresh fruit and vegetables are purchased at the market.
The fabled Tobago Cays has some of the Caribbean's finest diving and snorkelling opportunities. Accessible via boat on a day trip from the Grenadines, these five small islands are surrounded by glittering white sand and ringed with spectacular coral reefs. Sea turtles, parrot fish, and plenty more mesmerising marine life await you.
Where better to sample a taste of typical island life than Bequia. The largest of the Grenadines is home to age-old industries like boat building and fishing, as well as to traditional shops and restaurants that have managed to retain all of their local charm. Just like the rest of the region, there's also endless golden sand and turquoise waters.
One of the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere can be found just north of Kingstown, St Vincent. This 20-acre site contains a dazzling display of blossoms and plants, as well as a bounty of breadfruit trees, which were brought to the island by Captain Bligh in 1765. A direct descendant of the original tree still exists today.
