St. Vincent & the Grenadines
St. Vincent & the Grenadines is a nation of 32 islands in the Lesser Antilles between St. Lucia and Grenada. The largest and northernmost island is St. Vincent, which has a forest-covered mountainous interior that La Soufriere, a 4,000-foot tall active volcano, dominates. On the southwest coast is Kingstown, the nation’s capital.
The remaining Grenadines lie to the south of St. Vincent. Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, and Union Islands are the largest and most populated. Young Island is a small private island right off the coast of Kingstown, St. Vincent.
Smaller inhabited islands include Mayreau, Palm Island, and Petit St. Vincent. The Tobago Cays is a marine park located east of Mayreau and is a collection of five tiny islands, sheltered lagoons, and coral reefs. See 8 Must-See Islands in the Grenadines.
