Bequia, the second largest island, lies 9 miles / 14.5 km southwest of St Vincent. It is about 5 miles / 8 km long and 0.5 miles / 0.8 km wide and looks quite different from St Vincent, having rounded hills rather than mountains. There is a large difference between the coastlines on either side of the island: the windward (west) side is very rocky, while the leeward (east) side has many bays, most of them having white sand beaches.
The highest point of the island is at 900ft / 274m. The large natural harbour of Admiralty Bay is a popular yacht anchorage. Hills and beaches of white sand alternate around the Bay, with exposed rock cliffs along the southern edge.
Bequia offers a paradise complete with quiet lagoons, beautiful reefs and long stretches of near-deserted beaches. Small, beautifully lush and on the quiet side, Bequia has its own unique culture. The atmosphere is very West Indian and the inhabitants, who enjoy a comfortable standard of living, are friendly and polite.
