How to get to Bequia

There is no major international airport on St. Vincent & the Grenadines, so visitors usually arrive by way of neighbouring islands like Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia or Martinique. Regular flights from Europe cost around €800.

Flight time from central Europe to St. Vincent & the Grenadines is approx. 10 hours. From Germany, only Condor offers a weekly direct flight to Grenada or Barbados (which has the best connecting flights to St. Vincent & the Grenadines).

Caribbean airlines provide regional connecting flights in a prop plane. Mustique Airways, for instance, offers a direct service to Bequia. Airlines such as LIAT fly to St. Vincent, which is a cheaper option (approx. €150). Then just take the ferry to Port Elizabeth (approx. €5). The crossing is only one hour, but the perfect way to tune into the right mood for your Caribbean holiday.

Travel season & weather

The tropical climate has air temperatures between 23°C and 31°C, and the sea water temperatures are from 25°C to 28°C. The high season between December to May has the lowest rainfall and is the best time to travel. The weather can be more humid and less settled during the low season over the rest of the year, although there are often long sunny periods as well. The hurricane season is from July to October. Luckily St. Vincent & the Grenadines are at the southern edge of the Caribbean hurricane belt and the island has not been hit significantly for the last 50 years. Most tropical storms pass the island to the north.
