Bequia - Weather was not on our side. We took the Northern Grenadine Catamaran tour and there were very rough seas and strong wind. Perhaps 25% of the passengers got sea sick including my DGF. we fought that all the way to Mustique and then had to alter our snorkel stop to Petite Nevis (probably due to sea conditions). The water was cooler than expected and there was not much to see underwater. We probably should not have left port and the crew told us it had been very rough all week. That said, with good weather it would have been a wonderful excursion since the scenery was terrific and I am sure the original snorkel site would have been great. Read Less

Loved it here. Highlight of trip. Sleepy town but full of character. Have to take tender in from ship but arrive on a jetty right in town. Found fabulous bar. Asked for rum punches but they didn't have any. Barman slipped out and came back with fruit juice and two bottle of rum and said, 'here make them yourselves!'. After a long evenings' drinking the bill for four of us came to about £10! Read Less

This was a beautiful little Island...WE had heard this was the Island for model ship building so we set out to find the shops. We found 3 and yes , they do wonderful work. We watched and got a few tips on the kind of wood they use and the tools. Then we met the man that paints them. Since my husband is a wood carver this stop was particularly rewarding. Read Less

Charming little place, nothing much to do except walk, swim or sit and swill beer. We walked over to Friendship Beach which is not actually very far, just up and down a bit. We saw a great sign saying "We sell intoxicated liquor". Felt a bit mean not using the taxis as I am sure they only get business when the boat comes in. It is a short tender ride from the boat to the jetty. Read Less

A small port, with some small shops, outside market stalls, and an interesting bookshop.

Only went ashore briefly and a bit disappointed. Had an image in my mind which it didn't live up too perhaps because the sun wasn't shining and it rained .....

Bequia is a charming little port town, fun to stroll. There's not a lot to do but interesting to see.

A great trip. Book the taxi tour whilst on the ferry. Forget Basils Bar. Take some sandwiches and a bottle of chmpagne and head of to the right of the jetty. After ten minutes following the coast you will see a beach pergola. We had a great day there and the snorkelling just off to the left on the easy reach reef is spectacular. Read Less

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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
