Beaches

Bequia is the largest island of the Grenadines, located just south and slightly west of St. Vincent.

Spring Bay

From Spring House, it’s a short walk or ride down the hill to Spring Bay Beach where you are almost guaranteed to have the beach all to yourself. Spring Bay and Crescent Beach are next to one another on the Eastern side of the island. This is the quieter and more remote Atlantic side of Bequia where you will find former sugar plantations and palm tree-lined scenery.

Industry Bay – Crescent Beach

Further along the coast will bring you to Crescent Beach (formerly Industry Bay) where you can relax in the privacy of an idyllic beach or enjoy the excitement of kayaking in the waves crashing off the reef. Crescent Beach is a pleasantly protected from the waves by the reef. A local beach bar offers food and drink, but the beach is almost always deserted. Perfect for snorkeling and windsurfing.

Princess Margaret

For a day-trip or visit Princess Margaret Beach is a wonderful choice! Located just below Belmont, it is one of the best beaches in Bequia and a safe and popular place for any beach activities. This serene stretch of sand is a good place to sunbathe, swim or snorkel. Bring a picnic with you or head back to the restaurants along the Belmont Walkway for lunch.

Lower Bay

The beach area comes alive as the locals bring their boats out, mix with catamarans anchored barely offshore, while water taxis travel back and forth.

Park Bay

Another palm-shaded, undeveloped, sandy beach, Park Bay is also home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary. It makes for interesting snorkeling among the many coral heads. The current will take you on an exciting swim around the headlands to Industry and then Spring Bay. Be sure to go in pairs and wear a life jacket!

Ravine Bay

Friendship Bay

Friendship Bay is a short ride from town and features a long, wide sweep of beach favoured by the locals. There are increasing numbers of hotels and bars along this beach making it a more social location for a day at the beach, but still remains quiet and is never crowded.
