Touring St Vincent and visiting Bequia

09 December 2010 | St Vincent

When clearing into the St Vincent it is quiet simple as you only need your passport and previous port customs papers and 35EC$ which is their currency. 1US$ is equal to 2,65EC$ but beware of the taxi charges as you have to establish a price before boarding as they don't have meters. There are also local taxis if you are prepared to wait and be cramped into it like sardines in a can.

We took a tour up the north western side of the main Island to see the site where they made the movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean' . On the way we saw some amazing lush forests and bays where many of the locals farm and engage in all kinds of arts and crafts as they depend mainly on tourism. We found the locals to be very friendly and happy ... maybe due to the fact that there is plenty of rum to be found in the Caribbean which is very reasonably priced. Whilst driving with our tour operator, named Blaze, there seemed to be no rush and no road rage on the very narrow road leading up the coast. At the movie site there is a pub and restaurant with many of the clothes used in the movie which we were allowed to try on and take some real cool pics, (More pics to be loaded as soon as I find internet!!)

Blaze told us about his friend's beach pub, Mango Pub, on the next Island called Bequia (pronounced 'Beckway'), and recommended we visit there before leaving as it is said to be the place to visit and one of the most exquisite islands in the Grenadines. White-sand beaches and quiet coves have drawn sailors to this island for years. St. Vincent's black-sand beaches are fascinating, but their dark color changes the water to a mysterious green rather than your typical Caribbean blue. After clearing out on Saturday morning, we sailed over to this beautiful Island with the main town called Port Elisabeth and mosied along the shallows in search of 'Mango Pub'. We did manage to find it, anchor the yacht and swim ashore. We had a wonderful lunch whilst meeting some brand new best friends who were very envious of us sailing off into the sunset that evening.
