While St. Vincent is the largest of the islands in St. Vincent and the Grenadines
, it’s only one of the 32 that make up the nation—no wonder the country attracts sailors from around the world. The islands in the archipelago offer a number of different ways to explore this part of the Caribbean whether it’s by diving, hiking, wind surfing, kayaking or some other sport. Among them are one of the jewels of the southern Caribbean, the Tobago Cays, a group of five uninhabited islands that are protected as the Tobago Cays Marine Park. You can snorkel at Horseshoe Reef and explore the lagoon teeming with green turtles and colorful fish species swimming through crystal-clear waters. It’s an idyllic yachting anchorage, a dream for scuba divers, and a paradise for beachcombers. If you are not exploring the Grenadines on your own yacht or charter, operators offer daytrips from Bequia, Mayreau, and Union Island.
