Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is a southern Caribbean nation, composed of the main island of St Vincent itself, and an archipelago of smaller landmasses. Among those familiar with the region, St Vincent is best known for its major sailing destination, but the smaller islands have their charms too, such as the reef-lined Bequia Island, with its stunning white-sand beach named in honour of Princess Margaret, situated within the beautiful Admiralty Bay. The nation’s capital is Kingstown, and is situated in on St Vincent island. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are not heavily populated. The capital and chief port of Kingstown has a population of approximately 16,500. However, the filming of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies on Saint Vincent has brought the region to wider attention, and there has been significant development of the tourism sector over the past decade. Here for a luxury holiday of a lifetime, throughout this idyllic archipelago of stunning beauty, incredible scenery and top-class accommodation, are 5 out-of-this-world St Vincent island resorts.
