The Real Caribbean



Welcome to Saint Vincent & The Grenadines (SVG) which sits in between Barbados, Saint Lucia & Grenada in the Caribbean, and boasts some of the most spectacular beaches in the world and certainly the Caribbean's best.

A multiple island Caribbean paradise just 32 miles long comprising of just 32 exquisite islands, so spectacular, the Tobago Cays, shown above and below, were used for part of the filming of the Pirates of the Caribbean!


Probably the most idyllic and truly Caribbean vibe island nation in the region, it has fortunately remained unspoiled and untouched by mass tourism and has always been a bit of a secret gem.

For those looking for huge 500 room hotels and hundreds/thousands of tourists lining the beach with umbrellas, this is not for you! SVG is the 'Real Caribbean' and the 'Real Thing'. Don't miss it.


SVG is also home to the super exclusive celebrity hideaway island of Mustique comprising of 104 luxury villas owned by Hollywood A listers, Rockstars and Royalty, and the islands are also a regular haunt with celebs on board super and mega yachts often seen cruising around! 

Staff Travel Voyage and the Ministry of Tourism have created a way for you to experience spectacular SVG on an airline/travel agency employee budget, so you can tell the world and spread the word when you return as travel industry employees do best!


Accessibility: With the opening of a larger international airport it is now far more easily accessible with non-stop flights from the USA or via the neighboring islands of Barbados, Grenada and periodically Saint Lucia.


If you love the Caribbean you simply must visit SVG. Stay on the larger Island of Bequia (or mainland St Vincent), and take a visit to the smaller southern Grenadine islands for the day or overnight. Click on the map below to enlarge and see the bottom/end of this hotel page for how to best see the islands.

Getting Here: American Airlines fly non-stop from Miami to St Vincent, or route in via Barbados or Grenada with InterCaribbean Airways or Caribbean Airlines. Air Canada having been operating to St Vincent from Toronto and are planning to re-start soon (check schedules). Virgin Atlantic are set to start flying direct from Europe (London) Sep/Oct 2021.

See Getting To SVG as well as Covid Entry Requirements at the end of this page for more details. (It is simple to visit SVG if you are double vaccinated and airport arrival PCR tests are FREE).
