St. Get Me To A Caribbean Beach As Soon As Possible
Friday, September 25, 2009
The island of St. Vincent (not to be confused with the singer named St. Vincent) is actually the main island of the country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and it contains an active volcano — which last blew its lid in 1979 — that could one day obliterate St. Vincent, leaving St. Vincent without St. Vincent, which would then make the name of the country be “and the Grenadines.” Got that?
It’s also a great place to go island-hopping, as this Times article describes when they head to Tobago Cays, an uninhabited nature reserve consisting of 5 islands, spectacular beaches, and unforgettable snorkeling.
Also nearby is the island of Canouan, accessible via a 12-minute plane ride, and the seven square mile sized Bequia, an hour-long ferry ride from the main island.
Flights in November are about $546 from New York, $1164 from London, and $466 from Miami.
