The Grenadines

The Grenadines, divided politically between St Vincent and Grenada, are a string of 100 tiny, rocky islands and cays stretching across some 35 miles of sea between the two.


They are still very much off the beaten track as far as tourists are concerned, but are popular with yachtsmen and the ‘international set’.
