Before you set sail for the remote isles of the Grenadines, take some time to explore Kingstown, St. Vincent's colorful capital city located along the island's southern coast. Punctuated by cobbled streets, rolling hills, and a bustling harbor, Kingstown lures travelers with its arresting scenery and its vibrant market area.
Recent visitors suggest visiting Fort Charlotte to admire dramatic bay views. The fort "Has been well preserved," one TripAdvisor user writes. "It now serves as a museum and a great vantage point to enjoy a panoramic view of this lush and natural paradise." If you don't want to make the uphill trek to Forth Charlotte, consider simply meandering downtown. According to one VirtualTourist user, "One of the pleasant options in Kingstown is just walking about to either of the surrounding summits of the crescent shaped bay."
For exquisite architecture, head to Bay Street and admire the Georgian-style arches lining the city's 18th-century buildings. For souvenirs and fresh fruits and veggies, head to the vibrant Kingstown Produce Market (a three-story complex found at Upper Bay, Hillsboro, and Bedford streets). And for more restaurants and storefronts, head to Grenadines Wharf, at the end of Bay Street.
