Surrounded by almost two miles of white sandy beaches, this is a place to come and relax. A true island paradise, where you leave behind the pressures of modern life, Petit St Vincent is the ultimate escape. None of the cottages have phones, TVs or internet access, giving guests real peace and quiet. It is also quite normal not to see many of your fellow guests whilst you stay here. The service is friendly and nothing is too much trouble, from the moment you're met from the boat, to the moment you leave.
Dining on Petit St Vincent is a delicious affair - the executive chef uses classic techniques with Caribbean ingredients. Eat at one of the restaurants and bars on the beach that serve fresh locally grown or caught produce, or take a picnic and a bottle of wine that has been prepared for you and find a secluded beach or sit on top of Marni Hill with spectacular views across the Caribbean. Or if absolute privacy is what you'd like, then you can use the resort's flag system to order room service.
Swimming is of course the thing to do as the waters are always warm, and there is a host of water sports. Island hopping on a classic sloop - make you sure take a trip with Captain Jeff, deep sea fishing diving off one of the protected reefs, are just a few of the activities available. The marine life around Petit St Vincent is truly spectacular.

The resort has four open air treatment rooms, where guests can enjoy a variety of treatments given by a team of highly experienced Balinese and Caribbean therapists.
Being a small island, the water is the dominant feature here. Non-motorized equipment such as kayaks, Hobie Cats, Sunfish, windsurfs, and snorkeling gear are available free of charge. Friendly staff are on hand to help when needed. For the more adventurous types deep sea fishing and scuba diving are available - the fish and turtles here are well worth seeing. Alternatively, you can sail on a classic island sloop and discover the charm of nearby islands, bays and reefs. A popular destination is the Tobago Cays, a group of five small, uninhabited islands surrounded by an extensive horseshoe reef. From January 2015 the Dive Center will be able to arrange an introductory course in SCUBA diving in the safe confines of the bay with a team of professional PADI scuba instructors. Guests looking to advance beyond the introductory resort dive will be able to do a full PADI open water course and gain an international certificate.
Location & Directions
St Vincent & Grenadines
Petit St Vincent is one of the islands that make up the Grenadines in the Caribbean and is found off the south east coast of Union Island and the north coast of Petit Martinique.
When to go
Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
