Of the 32 islands that make up the chain known as St Vincent and The Grenadines
, only nine are inhabited, offering an unspoiled, barefoot and secluded escape from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.
Famous as a sailing destination, visitors to St Vincent and the Grenadines will quickly see there is more to the islands than yacht-filled harbours.
Explore the markets of the capital Kingstown, spend an afternoon snorkelling alongside turtles off the uninhabited Tobago
Cays, or hike through the lush tropical forests, keeping eyes peeled for the rare St Vincent parrot.
