Bequia (bekway), derived from the Carib word Becouya meaning ‘Island of the clouds’, is the second largest island in the Grenadines. It’s lush, unspoiled landscape spans 7 square miles and is situated in the southern part of the Caribbean chain, known as the Windward Islands. Home to 5000 English speaking inhabitants, the island’s seafaring heritage explains Bequians connection to the sea and marine traditions.
Expect genuine smiles, a slower pace of life, unique displays of craftsmanship and undiscovered charm. Although quaint and untouched; Bequia still offers the comforts and luxuries for the ideal Grenadine island escape, where you can drop anchor and unwind.
Bequia enjoys warm weather all-year round. Tradewinds bring cooling breezes for most of the year; the famous Christmas Winds bring stiffer steady breezes, lively seas and perfect sailing weather.
