Additional Location Information

Beautiful Bequia (pronounced bek way) is a gem of a small island, covering an area of only 7 square miles, Bequia lies in the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is just a short plane hop from the ever popular Barbados and next to the renowned Mustique, both favourite isles of the rich and famous. It is the largest of the Grenadine Islands, a group of islands known as the ‘jewels of the Caribbean’. Bequia has a number of pristine, white, sandy beaches, many of which are natural and undeveloped. On most days, you will find the perfect beach just to yourselves, where you can swim or snorkel in the warm turquoise waters or relax on the white sand in the gentle, tropical breeze.

Admiralty Bay is a large, natural harbour encompassing several villages and white sandy beaches. It is always full of sailing and motor yachts, of various shapes and sizes. It is a world famous destination to the yachting community and there is a well known saying that ‘Every super yacht ever launched will, at sometime in its life, end up visiting Bequia’.

There are many restaurants, bars and rum shops dotted along the shoreline of the villages. In Port Elizabeth, the islands capital, there is a lovely pathway along the shore called Belmont Walkway with many interesting bars and restaurants to sit and ‘lime’ or relax. It is well worth the effort to stroll right along to the end, where you will find the Fig Tree run by Cheryl from Bequia Bookshop and her staff. The Gingerbread is a particular favourite during the day, with its cafe which serves the most delicious cakes and Maranne’s Ice Cream Parlour offering natural, home made ice creams and yoghurts. A perfect place to sit and soak in the atmosphere, watch the ever changing view and make new friends as you speculate which famous couple are on the super yacht in the Bay. Sometimes you may see for yourself when the occupants arrive with their entourage. You will also find both dive shops along here, catering for novices to the most experienced divers. You can take one of the many courses they offer, depending upon how much time you can spare.

Occasionally we are visited by cruise ships. Two of the most popular being the Windjammer and Windsurf. They light up the bay at night which looks spectacular. Thursday night is ‘jump up’ night at the Frangi— another well known place where locals, foreign residents, yachties and visitors, all congregate to meet up and dance to the local steel or string bands. It is a hive of activity and should be experienced at least once during your stay.

Lower Bay is the furthest village to the West off Admiralty Bay and is different again. It is, dare I say it, more laid back than Port Elizabeth. Again you have the long, beautiful, white sandy beach together with three beach bars De Reef, Keegan’s and Mango’s, all offering tasty food and giving undisturbed views of the sunset and (if you are lucky) a green flash. Sunday is the busy day here when the island comes out to ‘chill’.

Wherever you go on Bequia, you will be given the warmest of welcomes. Everyone is happy to help you have the best holiday ever. They do not go out to hassle you for business, as on other islands. They know you are here to relax and they give you the space to do that. This is why so many visitors return year after year, after year….. after year.

Bequia may be small and laid back, but for the adventurous there is so much to see and do. Any taxi will take you on a tour of the island visiting such places as the turtle sanctuary, pottery and whaling museum. You can hire a car, scooter or bike to explore the many beaches yourself. The fast ferry allows you to visit the other Grenadine islands and the mainland of St Vincent. There are numerous day charter yachts for you to explore the smaller, closer islands and there is the famous Friendship Rose, the old mail boat, which takes you on day trips to Mustique and Tobago Cays.

What more can I say ............. Come see for yourselves!

Tropical Hideaway is situated in a prime location on the secluded Bequia Estate, a private, hillside property which is high above Princess Margaret’s beach. It gives breathtaking and panoramic views of the whole of Admiralty Bay and is in the perfect position for absolutely stunning sunsets (views of the multi coloured racing yachts during the Easter Regatta are quite unforgettable). It is only a 10 minute drive from here to the ferry dock and the shops of Port Elizabeth and 20 minutes to the local airport.

If you enjoy walking, it's a nice downhill walk to three of the best beaches on the island — Princes Margaret’s (approximately 15 - 20 minutes), Lower Bay (20 - 25) and Friendship Bay (around 30). It takes about 20 - 25 minutes to reach the Gingerbread and Frangipani area and a few minutes more along the beachfront into town. However, it is a rather more energetic walk back uphill and you will need to allow longer for this (especially after a rum punch or two!). There are, of course, plenty of reliable and inexpensive taxi's to bring you back.
