If you’re yearning for a slice of barefoot, island escapism, these blissful, jewel-like islands guarantee laidback luxury.
Laze on the white or black sands and never fight for a sun lounger on the isles of St Vincent and The Grenadines, known for its pristine, deserted beaches. One of the best ways to visit the islands is by boat; why not charter a private yacht and glide on the shimmering Caribbean waters while marvelling at the stunning views and beautiful sunsets? Many of the private island resorts serve the most delicious, locally caught seafood so you can feast royally after a hard day of sunbathing, snorkelling and relaxation.
These 32 islands stud the landscapes like stepping stones to paradise; ideal for honeymooners or couples looking for total seclusion and unspoilt beauty.
A 10 percent service charge is often added to restaurant and bar bills. If not, it is discretionary but a minimum of 10 percent is usually expected.
None for British citizens
The official currency is the East Caribbean Dollar. It’s best to buy them before you leave the UK. If you need cash when you’re there, you can exchange UK Pounds at the airport or a bank (most islands have one).
Most major UK credit and debit cards are accepted, as are traveller’s cheques. You’ll probably need cash to pay smaller businesses outside your hotel. All the islands except Mayreau have banks and cash machines.
