Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
This chain of small islands is an unspoiled Caribbean paradise thanks to its lush rainforests, volcanic terrain, and slower pace of life. It’s an ideal spot for nature lovers and those seeking a laid–back, crowd–free escape.
Do: Experience the island nation’s sustainable agriculture by visiting local farms and producers, like Grenadine Wild Sea Salt, which offers tours and tastings of their solar–evaporated sea salt in a garden setting featuring a restored historic mill. Spend the day on the water off the south coast of Saint Vincent with a see–through kayak tour that includes a picnic lunch and rum punch.
Stay: Palm Island Resort & Spa in the Grenadines is an award–winning island hotel that calls itself “castaway chic” and is surrounded by five beaches, perfect for water activities ranging from kayaking, paddleboarding or sailing to snorkelling (sea turtle sightings are practically guaranteed).
