About Bequia and Places to Visit
Bequia is a picturesque hilly island, the largest of the Grenada archipelago, located south of the island of St. Vincent. This island, the largest of the Grenadines, has only one small town – Port Elizabeth, charming and quiet, famous for the models of amazing sailing boats that are sold in most local shops. The island of Bequia is very small – just over 18 km² in area. Life here is completely dependent on the sea. Every family in Bequia is somehow connected to the sea, as it is an island of fishermen, sailors and shipbuilders. Fishing is one of the must-see attractions for tourists.
Rare and incredibly beautiful corals grow in the coastal waters, and the abundance of sea creatures makes the coastal zone ideal for snorkeling. The island is also famous for its Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary. It is a turtle sanctuary, where biologists are trying to preserve the endangered Bissa turtle species. Travellers are encouraged to see how turtles are born and grow, what they are fed and how they are cared for. It is also possible to let the turtle out to sea on their own.
J. F. Mitchell Airport (BQU) is the only airport on Bequia Island.
