Top things to do while in Bequia!

5 Aug

Go to the Beach!

White sand, turquoise seas and secluded bays. Bequia’s beaches invite you to relax and spend time unwinding.

Sailing..

Bequia has been a favourite destination of sea-farers for hundreds of years. Our lovely Port Elizabeth is full of yachting supplies and services and our great beaches, bars and restaurants make Bequia the perfect shore leave.

Admiralty Bay on Bequia’s leeward coast offers a sheltered and popular anchorage for visiting sailboats and motor yachts. Port Elizabeth is a port of entry and provides customs clearance.

Turtle Watching

Get close up to sea turtles, swim with them, learn how to protect them. Discover your eco side.

The Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary is located on Park Bay, a little further to the north of Spring and Industry. As well as the enjoyment of seeing juvenile sea turtles, it is also an educational experience. To see green turtles in the wild, one of the best places to visit is the Tobago Cays. You can book a boat trip there from one of the operators along the waterfront in Port Elizabeth.

Diving and Snorkeling

You’re stumped for choice when it comes to beaches in Tobago. A good rule of thumb: the further north you go, the quieter the beaches become. Here are our top 25, grouped by region — Crown Point and the southwest, theLeeward (Caribbean) coast, and the Windward (Atlantic) coast.

Crown Point

  • Canoe Bay (entrance fee): off the Milford Road, this might be Tobago’s calmest and shallowest bathing beach, perfect for young families. Rarely crowded, with excellent facilities including bar and beachfront cabanas
  • Pigeon Point ($20 entrance fee): Tobago’s picture-postcard beach. The water by the white coral sand is calm and warm and shallow, protected by Buccoo Reef and great for swimming and snorkelling. Thatched huts with picnic tables shelter you from the sun, and the on-site bar and restaurant provide refreshment and entertainment. Several water-sports businesses operate here: surfing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, paddle-boarding, kayaking and more. Some glass-bottom boat tours also start here for the Reef and Nylon Pool. Make sure to take a photo or a selfie (or wefie) in the little thatched cabana at the end of the much-photographed jetty!
  • Store Bay: a stone’s throw from the airport, this relatively small, shadeless beach — cupped on both sides by small coral cliffs — is the heartbeat of Crown Point and one of the most popular (and busy) beaches in Tobago. Glass-bottom boats often leave at least twice daily for tours to Buccoo Reef and the Nylon Pool. It’s great for swimming, and snorkelling under coral cliffs at the southern end. There’s excellent craft shopping, food stalls, and changing rooms (small fee).

Caribbean Poem: “Beaches” by Grannyeri

Written By Grannyeri

White hot sand to run in,
golden sun shining down.
Blue waters washing on the shore,
not one reason to ever frown.

Caribbean holiday,
all inclusive, it’s the best.
Winter blues, we left up north,
this place leaves me impressed.
