There are no rivers or wells on Bequia. All our water comes from the sky. It is collected on roofs and stored in large tanks that form a part of every house. At Spring Hotel Bequia our roofs are made in Barbados of a special non-toxic material to minimize impurities in the water. The locals drink the water with no adverse effects. The water is safe for bathing and swimming but we provide bottled water for our guests. All other water is boiled and filtered before use.
Please conserve water. We rely on collecting water during the rainy season to last us all year. Excessively long showers, frequent flushing of toilets and leaving faucets running are the biggest wasters of our water supply.
