Bequia Yacht Charters – Things to See & Do
Here are some of the top sites to experience during your next yacht charter to Bequia:
Sitting along the island’s capital, Port Elizabeth, Admiralty Bay is filled with popular bars and cafes, boutique shops, and an idyllic place for a stroll, Belmont Walkway. Anchor in Admiralty Bay and join other ‘yachties’ at the Frangipani Hotel waterfront bar for sunset cocktails.
Bequia has a rich seafaring heritage – the island has been dependent on shipping for centuries. As a result, the majority of its 5,000 inhabitants are passionate about fishing or boat-building, and every family has a connection to the sea.
If you wander through the island’s covered market, you will find rows of workshops where skilled craftsmen display their authentic, intricate double-ended whalers – a staple on the island of Bequia. This same locale is also home to colorful replicas of existing boats, all projects for which these talented craftsmen have been commissioned.
Known for its beauty and history, this 200-year-old plantation houses the ruins of a 19th-century sugar factory. Overlooking Spring Bay, the plantation invites yacht charter guests to tour its grounds; learn about its inherent fruits, plant life, and animals; and like most places in the Caribbean, eat at its delicious restaurant.
