Perched at the northernmost tip of the Grenadines' chain of islands, Bequia beckons to beachcombers and seafarers with its golden sands, calm aquamarine waves, and relaxed atmosphere. When you tire of lounging along powdery shorelines, head to Port Elizabeth, Bequia's quaint, seaside town located in the central part of the island to pick up some souvenirs and a bite to eat. During Easter, sailors flock to the Port Elizabeth's scenic waterfront facing the west to catch the Easter Regatta, a four-day event filled with lively boat races, delectable food, and lots of dancing.

While on Bequia, you won't want to pass up the chance to visit Lower Bay Beach, a sunny strip just south of Port Elizabeth. Recent visitors call this picturesque beach the place to go to on the weekends. One TripAdvisor user notes, "There are some steep hills and small roads but […] It's a lovely beach area so enjoy hanging out."

Although you don't have to pay to explore the island, you will have to drop some cash to get there. The easiest way to reach Bequia is via the Bequia Express, which provides daily service between St. Vincent and Bequia, and docks at Port Elizabeth. A round-trip ticket costs $35 XCD (approximately $13 USD). To learn more about what to see and do in Bequia, visit the SVG Tourism Authority's website.

#1 Tobago Cays

This cluster of small, uninhabited isles perched at the east end of Mayreau boasts some of Grenadine's finest underwater sites. The remote cays' calm, clear waters teem with bright coral reefs and exotic marine life. In 2006, the area was named a wildlife reserve to maintain its natural setting. As a result, yachts are not allowed to drop anchor here, so you'll feel like you've discovered untouched Caribbean waters. One TripAdvisor user describes the Tobago Cays as "One of the most beautiful places to sail to and simply relax."

A wide variety of diving, snorkeling, and sailing companies offer excursions to Tobago Cays. Friendship Rose Cruise, a reputable charter company, offers full-day sailing and snorkeling excursions via schooner from Bequia to the cays. Boats depart every day at 7 a.m. and return at 5:30 p.m.; breakfast and lunch are included. A full-day cruise costs around $380 XCD (roughly $140 USD) per adult; children under five can sail for free. For more information on the Tobago Cays, visit the SVG Tourism Authority's website.
