Island Girl’s Travel Photos: St. Vincent and The Grenadines

Blue skies. Clear water. Lush greenery. Dramatic rock formations. Gorgeous views. That’s St. Vincent and the Grenadines at a glance. In a nutshell.

A chain of 32 islands dotting the southern Caribbean Sea, this diminutive destination is perfect for anyone who wants to turn off the rest of the world and tune into nature.

SVG’s terrain is defined by startlingly vivid colors, dramatic contrasts and vistas that stretch on for miles. Salt pond soaking, fort climbing, beach-bumming and road tripping are just some of the activities you can indulge in while the island. Throw a quirky Pirates of the Caribbean museum into the mix and I’d say SVG is a must-visit for anyone who’s genuinely interested in exploring the wide variety of experiences the Caribbean region has to offer.

Don’t just take my word for it however, take in my 12 favorite photos of St. Vincent and The Grenadines. I hope they will inspire you to visit some day.

      Thanks! We had perfect weather every single day! The island was one of my fave excursions because there’s actually a fort all the way to the top. It’s a pretty steep climb up the steps but the views on the way up and at the top are soooo worth it!

    Wow this island is as close you can get to paradise! The lush green from the rainforest and the never-ending sea of blue with the white sand. This is truly a must-visit destination. It doesn’t help that I have always longed for a tropical vacation – since my last one in December – and this island is calling my name!

    Ohh girl I just pinned the post to my wish list board! You sold me St.Vincent and The Grenadines on the first paragraph and on your first photo! Is soo wild and green with the blue sky and crystal clear water…just like you wrote! I am from Thailand we have beautiful beaches too but this part of the world intrigues me very much as I have never been to and the culture is totally different. For now, these islands has to stay on my wish list but I hope to be ticking it off very soon!

  29. That is a beautiful and serene coastline. Perfect for surfing! Is scuba diving allowed there? I think the reefs below would be majestic!

    1. islandgirlintransit says: Reply

      SVG is a great dive destination, especially Bequia!

  30. “If there was a paradise on earth, then this must be it”. Your stunning pictures of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, evoke this oft-repeated and somewhat cliched quote from me. The spirit of the Caribbean seems to be frozen in time by your camera. Nature at its best in the form of water, sky, and sand seem to erupt in an explosion of unparalleled beauty.
