Bequia, "Island of the Clouds", is a true gem of the Grenadines, nestled between St Vincent and Mustique.
It has an easy and relaxed atmosphere, and the local people are absolutely charming.
Conversations here start with a smile and a “good morning”. This enchanting island still retains traditional courtesy and polite approaches, often missing in modern society.
