St. Vincent
Kingstown
St. Vincent's charming capital city (pop. 10,000) is best explored by guided or free-form walking tours. The major historical sites include St. Mary's Church, the National Museum, Botanical Gardens, and Fort Charlotte.
Mesopotamia Valley
This fertile Valley is saturated with winding rivers, dense forests and fresh water streams. The exotic Montreal Gardens should not be missed. ADDRESS: North on Vigie Highway.
Leeward Highway
This scenic route that cuts through the island leads to historic village of Barrouallie. Here, whalers continue to hunt in open boats. They don't often catch a whale, but when they do a great celebration unfolds. The village of Layou is where the Carib Indians settled over 13 centuries ago.
The Grenadines
Bequia
You'll need to catch a boatride to reach this secluded island where the activities include whaling (by others), Edenesque swimming and excellent snorkeling. Industry Bay, with its towering palm trees, provides wonderful views of the other Grenadine Islands.
Mayreau
This tiny island village is enjoyed by the yachting set and the occasional cruise ship. The island's beaches are among the finest in the Caribbean.

Tobago Cays
Four tiny islands that together constitute a protected national park. Lovely picnic and camping sites.
