When what you’re looking for is an island off the beaten path this grouping doesn’t disappoint. My most recent visit was as part of a press tour but, as it’s also my husband’s homeland, we’ve taken the kids before.
Who should go: Individuals looking for a place to reflect, Couples who prefer it quiet and private, families who can entertain themselves and enjoy the outdoors.
What you won’t find: Big all-inclusive resorts with kids clubs and chicken fingers, made for tourist experiences, all the comforts of home.
What you will find: a choice of quaint bed and breakfasts, an authentic Caribbean experience and high-end properties who haven’t lost their connection with what makes the island special.
Where to sleep: The Grenadine House on St. Vincent; Young Island Resort just off shore.
Where to Eat: Indian and French cuisine share a menu (surprisingly well!) at The French Verandah; Italian is done well, the views are gorgeous and options are family friendly at Drift.
