Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a wedding and honeymoon destination unlike any other. Spectacular coves to explore, mountainous terrain to hike, and coral reefs to satisfy any diver’s dream; the 32 islands and cays of this Caribbean gem offer a tantalizing array of activities.

Stroll hand-in-hand through the cobblestone streets of historic Kingstown, the capital, nicknamed the city of arches for its 400 arches. Visit the vibrant market, browse through local craft shops and find unique treasures and souvenirs, then stop for a bite at the popular St. Vincent Flow Wine Bar & Kitchen or at Basil’s Bar & Restaurant.

Charter a yacht and sail the islands, hike to the top of La Soufrière volcano, swim with the sea turtles, go whale and dolphin watching, kite surfing or ocean kayaking; the watersport offerings are endless!

Tie the knot in the lush Botanical Gardens, or simply revel in the ultimate beauty of umpteen picture-perfect beaches. A trip to Fort Duvernay is a must for panoramic views of the southern shoreline. 

From guesthouses to private luxury villas and resorts, the nine islands comprising this idyllic nation feature a wide variety of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. How about an amorous adventure on a private and peaceful island resort like Palm Island or Petit St. Vincent?  Or perhaps a little pampering on Mustique, the exclusive hideaway of the rich and famous? Wherever you choose to stay, be prepared to enjoy a perfect honeymoon in paradise.
