Walk to right at dock and go thru scenic town to walkway to beach and Jack's bar. This is one of my favorite stops and the town is so pretty, one of my favorite.

This was by far our favourite island and were lucky to stop on both our weeks. on the first visit we did what most people were doing and waled to princess margarets bay the walk takes about 15 mins its a little hilly in places but very pretty you can get a water taxi if you prefer the beach is lovely but does get quite busy . On our second visit when got a land taxi to friendship bay it only took 10 mins and was totally different it is a beautiful almost desserted beach with just one hotel there are no beds for hire but you can get food and drink in the hotel, Read Less

We were going to walk to Princess Margaret Beach, but there was one stretch of walkway that was treacherous and slick, so we turned back. Apparently we also wouldn't have fared well on the stairs and walkway to the beach itself given the earlier knee injury. We turned back and ate lunch at the Frangipani Cafe, which would have been fine if it hadn't taken two hours to eat lunch. We sat down and waited for menus... then waited for someone to come take our order... then waited. and waited. and waited for food. Finally we went to ask about it and were informed that it was coming right out - the cook had been called off to the gallery next door. Um... The island itself was quaint and special. If I had more time, I'd love to take three hours for lunch and meander the island. That simply wasn't in the cards. Read Less

Bequia is the largest island of the Grenadines (part of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines) at 7 square miles. Another tender port. After the first fiasco, I had stopped listing to the port talks. But I did go to the official Bequia website and I had seen the maps. So I knew that things were compact in Port Elizabeth and I just scootered down the main street to St Mary the Virgin Anglican Church where we got to listen to a man singing and look at the church and cemetery. Then we took the tender back to the ship. Read Less

This is a very small port, visited by smaller ships and requiring a tender. Once there, you can walk to the beach or take a water taxi (neither suited to the less able-bodied), or take a short trip around the island. And that's it - that covers Bequia. The best thing to do - find a bar overlooking the bay, and sit with a drink in your hand watching the yachts bobbing up and down - absolute bliss. Read Less

No need for an excursion, just get off the boat and follow the Belmont boardwalk to Princess Margaret Beach. Lots of great bars and restaurants along the way. Does involve a going up some steps, but not too bad..

Nice little town which caters to boaters in the harbour and walked to Princess Margaret Beach and found Jack's Bar for lunch and local beers. Lovely town and beach and great place to spend the day

A charming little island with a lovely beach. The local market here really does sell home made souvenirs which is a nice touch. Again we took a taxi to the beach

We were tendered in to this small port and I see why. The island is so small we walked where we could in 60 minutes. There is nothing to do but get a water taxi to a beach we walked it but its very small. I noted there were no other cruise ships in this port I wonder why. We found a guy who took us to a Turtle sanctuary for 8 dollars each which filled some of the day in. I have noted that Thompson have taken this island stop off the 2018 cruise list. Read Less

We walked to st Margaret's bay which was lovely to chill on the beach. If you cannot walk far (15 minutes lovely walk along the coast) you can get a water taxi. They sell a mean rum punch on the beach.

FABULOUS!!! This was one of my favorite places in the 2 weeks. Very quaint and colonial. 7 miles sq and what I always imagined a Caribbean island to be. Tender to shore. Turn right and walk down road that leads onto a shore pathway/boardwalk. Some lovely pretty bars/restaurants/an upmarket hotel along way. About 15 minute walk to St Margarets Beach. Only a few chairs/umbrellas to hire $16 for 2. We continued walking to the very end of the beach and used our towels - it was very quiet hardly anyone around. A few huts on the beach to purchase drinks. We then walked further up a very steep hill to Lower Beach Bay. On the way found a lovely bar and had 4 drinks costing $5 for 2 cokes and $6 for 2 beers. Free wifi available and usable. It was so quiet at Lower Beach Bat we left all our valuables on the beach and we all went into the lovely clear warm water. I would return to this island in a heartbeat - but if you want plenty of things to do it may not be for you. Read Less

The town is pretty small, but has some shops and restaurants to sit and watch daily life and the port. Princess Margaret Beach is an easy walk (past some very lovely waterfront homes) and you can "rent" a lounge chair for about $5. Water was a bit cooler than previous stops for some reason, but still a beautiful beach. The tenders were picking up passengers in town and at the beach, so that was a real plus to be able to see both during a relatively short day. Read Less

I didn't love it, as where we got off the tender was just a wee village, but I understand the island offers many beautiful sights - I just didn't have the opportunity to see them.

Mac's Pizza a must - lobster pizza pricey but good. Bought some for the officers with no thanks upon return.
