Back to Bequia…
In the Spring of 2015, we went back to Bequia. This time we arrived by air instead of via our boat. This time we stayed high up in the hills of Mount Pleasant versus anchored in the harbor of Admiralty Bay. We wondered when planning this 5 week getaway if Bequia would still be as magical to us as we remembered it as sailors a couple of years ago. In every way, Bequia lived up to our expectations. 5 weeks went by in the blink of an eye and before we left, we re-booked for another 5 weeks in 2016!
What is the allure of this tiny island that no one has heard of? It is one of the few places still unspoiled by massive tourism, cruise ships, large hotels/condos, traffic, noise, etc. It is small and hard to get to and lacks many of the modern amenities of luxury resort destinations. It forces you to take life slow, relax, appreciate the beauty of nature and the kindness of people. It is a hidden paradise and we will continue to visit Bequia and hope it remains just as it is, unknown and primitive.
