Find out about this beautiful island and what it has to offer
While you could happily hole up in the Friendship House bubble, lazing by the pool, lolling in the shallows or beachcombing along the shore, there’s a whole island to explore.
Seven square miles in size with a tiny population to match, Bequia, which is part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is small but perfectly formed. Easy-going, safe and super-friendly, it retains a close community feel that guests always find warm and inviting. Blessed with warm seas and an unbeatable climate of year-round sunshine, this beautiful Caribbean island often feels like heaven on earth.
Although it’s largely unspoilt, there’s still plenty going on. The gentle trade-winds make it ideal for sailing and watersports and there’s also world-class diving, snorkelling and fishing. If you want to soak up some of the local culture, Port Elizabeth’s harbourfront has a buzzing vibe: it’s a great spot to listen to live music, explore the shops and boutiques and feast on freshly caught lobster or mahi-mahi at one of the restaurants. Mustique and the Tobago Cays are a short boat ride away while slightly closer to home, further along the sand from Friendship House, is the Bequia Beach Hotel which has two excellent restaurants and a beach bar.
