St Vincent & The Grenadines in a nutshell
Mountainous with lush rainforests and black sand beaches, St Vincent is the largest island of St Vincent & The Grenadines – an archipelago of 32 islands, but most of them are uninhabited. St Vincent is an active volcano island so in general is mountainous, with not much flat ground, and its capital (Kingstown) is a lively town with cobblestone streets. Soufriere Volcano reaches to a height of approximately 4,049ft; one side of the island has a very rugged coastline, the other has a number of beaches and bays. Around 95% of the beaches have black sand.
The total land area within St Vincent & The Grenadines is just over 150 square miles, and St Vincent is spread over 132 square miles of that land total – so you’ll get a good idea of how small the other islands are. Just nine of the islands in the Grenadines are populated – these are (in addition to St Vincent), Bequia, Canouan, Mayreau, Mustique, Palm Island, Petit St Vincent, Union Island and Young Island. Canouan, with its high-end villas and accommodation, features the only golf course in the Grenadines – and it’s superb.
