St Vincent

St Vincent & the Grenadines holidays – you’ve finally found paradise

St Vincent and the Grenadines are a chain of tiny islands sitting in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, bathed in sunshine and warm waters and fringed with whispering palm trees. Dig your toes into silky-soft sand, discover underwater wonders (ever seen black coral? You will here), and tuck into the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste. Wash it all down with some seriously feisty rum punches, and you’ve got the holiday from heaven.

Holidays in the Grenadines (as the island chain is known) are perfect for chilled-out explorers who love an adventure, but also want a fantastic hotel to relax in at the end of the day.

No matter which glorious destination you choose for your holiday to St Vincent and the Grenadines, you’ll be pampered, indulged, and generally spoilt rotten from the moment you arrive. You’re always just a few steps away from the beach, and even closer to a rum daiquiri that’ll blow you sideways!

Ready to dive in? Let’s go.

Things to do in St Vincent and the Grenadines

One of the most stunning places in the Caribbean, the Tobago Cays are a collection of uninhabited islands surrounded by stunning coral reefs, sandy lagoons and crystal-clear waters. Largely free of tourists, this is where you can live out your desert island fantasy. Whether you want to laze the day away on a secluded beach or snorkel with green turtles, you’ll be in awe of the natural beauty around you.

St Vincent and the Grenadines has been home to many swashbuckling pirates over the centuries, but did you know that Pirates of the Caribbean was also filmed here? Take a guided tour of all the movie locations or go for a dive where you might find historic shipwrecks, or even a few doubloons!

If you’re a first-time diver, ask your accommodation provider for details on PADI-approved lessons to get your open water certificate.

If you’re after a shot of adrenaline, head over to Union Island where you can take a kite surfing lesson with world famous kite surfer Jeremie Tronet. Now a local school owner, Jeremie will teach you to ride the waves and master the coolest tricks on an action-packed day you’ll never forget.

Fancy a bit of island hopping? There are 32 beautiful and unique islands to discover making sailing in St Vincent and the Grenadines an absolute must. From clear blue seas and luscious landscapes to hidden caves and black volcanic beaches, you can see it all from a shared or private yacht.

Mustique in the Grenadines was Princess Margaret’s favourite holiday spot for many years and if you’re a fan of The Crown, you’ll already know how gorgeous this island is. Whilst only 2.2 sq miles in size, this exclusive private island is the height of luxury and regularly plays host to plenty of famous faces. You can even gallop along the sands on horseback for a real dreamlike experience.

La Soufriere is the highest peak in St Vincent and a volcano that erupted as recently as April 2021 – its fifth eruption since 1718.

Whilst you can’t currently hike the volcano, you can get some amazing views from land and sea and you can see how it’s impacted the landscape, which is now beginning to recover. Whilst some of the tourist attractions, like hikes and waterfalls, remain inaccessible, the volcano has created some truly stunning views.

St Vincent and the Grenadines has a rich and fascinating history. The Arawak Rock Carvings are a moving memento of the country's indigenous people and all that’s left of a long-gone civilisation.

As a hotly-disputed spot for centuries, every island in St Vincent and the Grenadines has it's own fort to protect against invading enemies. Check out the 18th century Fort Duvernette on Young Island, or the imposing Fort Charlotte in St Vincent’s capital Kingstown.

Tuck into some local lobster or bite into a banana and you’ll definitely taste the difference as it comes from the land or sea, straight to your plate!

Grab a table on the beach and watch the dolphins play as you sip on the powerful – but delicious - local rum and look out for the roadside BBQs during the weekend for some authentic Caribbean street food.

Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.

We'll be in touch soon


To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.
