Explore The Islands And Cays Of St Vincent & The Grenadines
Following a short flight to Union Island, a catamaran tour cruises through
the Tobago Cays for swimming, snorkelling and turtle-watching. Tobago
Cays is a cluster of five small uninhabited islands in The Grenadines
surrounded by a spectacular horseshoe reef creating a calm, crystalline
lagoon that is a playground for green turtles and is designated a National
Marine Park. The catamaran anchors here for guests to snorkel with the
turtles, a truly memorable experience. This is followed by a visit to
Saltwhistle Bay on the island of Mayreau to enjoy the long stretch of
pristine, white sand beach while lunch is served on the catamaran. Before
returning to Union Island for the return flight the catamaran calls at Palm
Island, a tiny private island with one of the most stunning crystal white
sand beaches and a great beach bar.

The challenging climb to the top of La Soufrière, an
active volcano over 4,000 feet (1,200 metres) high
which dominates the north of St Vincent, provides
breathtaking views. The three mile hike passes
through rainforest, bamboo groves, montane thicket
and cloud forest before reaching the volcanic rock
and ash-strewn rim of the immense crater which
is over a mile wide. The volcano last erupted in
1979 and the floor of its crater is 700 feet below
the rim with a lava dome located at its centre.
Botanical Gardens of St Vincent
The magnificent Botanical Gardens of St Vincent were founded in 1765
and are the oldest in the Western Hemisphere with a wealth of tropical
plants, flowers, trees and birds. Flourishing bougainvillaeas, frangipani
trees, hibiscus and the delicate wax-like blooms of the anthurium lilies
provide a stunning display. The gardens ensure that rare species of plants
and shrubs are conserved, whilst their medicinal values and places of
origin are studied. Among the wide variety of tropical trees and shrubs is
one of the original breadfruit trees brought from Tahiti in 1793 by Captain
Bligh after the notorious mutiny on his ship, the Bounty.
Owia Salt Pond
Owia Salt Pond is a huge rock pool filled with shallow sea water. This
natural volcanic rock formation is protected from the waves by the
numerous boulders which surround it, although the water is refreshed and
is home to reef fish and coral formations. Located on the Windward side
of St Vincent, the pond is a two hour drive along the Leeward coast
through the scenic Mesopotamia Valley and past the Black Point Tunnel
and La Soufrière volcano.
Dark View Falls
Adventure to Dark View Falls which are situated
in the northwest of St Vincent at the southern
foot of La Soufrière volcano. Set amidst a
stunning bamboo forest, two majestic waterfalls
cascade over lava rock in step formation with
elevations of up to 300ft. The lower falls are
reached by a bamboo bridge that spans the
river followed by a short trail through a shady
grove to where visitors can cool off in the
refreshing shower of the falls. The steeper trail
climbs to the higher falls where there is a large
pool for swimming.
Vermont Nature Trail
The Vermont Nature Trail winds through a 10,870
acre reserve of lush rain forest with towering
ferns, bamboo and tropical flora at the end of
the Buccament Valley. Halfway up is a parrot
viewing area where it is possible to see the rare
and colourful St Vincent parrot (national
emblem) in its natural habitat. Listen for their
unmistakable call and watch them fly above
the forest canopy in front of you. Dusk and
dawn are the prime times for spotting these
majestic birds. The reserve is also home to more
than 35 species of bird – including Whistling
Warblers, Redcapped Green Tanager, Cocoa
Thrush, Crested Hummingbirds and Black Hawks
