Bequia Plantation Hotel

Bequia Holidays

The island of Bequia (pronounced Bek-way) is part of St Vincent and the Grenadines and is the second largest of the islands. A small bohemian island, of just 18 square kilometres, the population consists of largely African, Scottish and Carib descent. The capital, Port Elizabeth is a busy port where you will find the whaling museum, bustling markets and craft stores. Delve further into the island and you are immediately amongst lush hills, beautiful golden beaches and secluded bays flanked by coconut palms and turquoise waters.  

Why we Like Bequia

The Grenadines are world renowned for their beaches and Bequia is no exception. In fact, it is rather special. No traffic lights, no neon signs, no golf. There are no direct flights either. A yachting mecca, but protected from mass tourism, Bequia is a delight.

What to Expect on your Bequia holiday 

Steppes Travel has selected two lovely properties to ensure an exclusive and spoiling stay on Bequia. The beach-front Bequia Plantation Hotel offers breathtaking views from cottages huddled amongst the scented flowers and coconut trees. Whereas, The Liming promises a new concept of relaxation. Discover the art of doing nothing in one of The Liming’s exquisite one to five-bedroom villas and enjoy your own private infinity pool and scenic views of the island. Life, as you might expect, moves fairly slowly on the island and days are spent simply exploring the beautiful beaches, superb local restaurants, pleasant bars and soaking up a truly West Indies vibe.

Some Ideas for a Bequia Holiday

  • For a small donation, visit the turtle sanctuary which was set up by a local fisherman to protect the hawksbill turtle.
  • The diving from Bequia is fantastic. Surrounded by coral reef, there are four sunken wrecks and 24 dive sites to explore.
  • Visit Hamilton Fort (within hiking distance from Port Elizabeth). Built in the 18th Century by the French as protection from English attack, the ruins of the fort lie to the north of Admiralty Bay and have incredible views towards Princess Margaret Beach.
  • Coincide a visit with local festivals including the traditional Bequia Easter Regatta, a colourful weekend steeped in tradition, or the Mount Gay Music Fest where Blues rhythms fill the air.

Beyond the Ordinary

Charter a beautiful historic schooner for the day to Tobago Cays or Mayreau or around the uninhabited islands of the Grenadines. The chef and crew will take care of you while you relax under the billowing canvas keeping an eye out for flying fish, dolphins and turtles at the bow or anchor to explore powder white sands and snorkel protected coral reefs.
