There is little area with shops and restaurants and kite surfing school right where the jetty is. If you are more interested in swimming and relaxing Palm Island is much nicer and it's just across.

We've been aiming to visit this part of St Vincent for sometime and finally made it. And it lived up to every expectation. Small, great beaches, and very friendly people. There are plenty of comfortable places to stay (Islanders Inn our choice) though few if any in the five star range. This is an unspoiled part of the Caribbean, which... More

We visited mostly the atm, restaurants and bars ... but not always is needed spectacular nature when the local people are funny and the food is awesome.

This little island is so colorful and pretty. There is a small airport so you can take a plane to this island from st vincent or even bequia island.

We dropped anchor in Chatham Bay, close to the northern end of the long beautiful beach. A quiet, relatively unspoilt bay, great for sunsets; some usually good snorkelling along the north side of the bay, great gusts of wind and now, a new reason to be here. Bollhead cooks great food! 5 of us went ashore and were met by... More

Neat little island, not touristy, was able to find some last minute provisions and essentials for the boat. Locals were friendly, would love to explore a bit more if passing thru again.

We have spent 6 days at Union Island instead of the originally planned 7, but it was still a couple of days too much. Don't get me wrong, the island has a few really nice spots, but it is not the perfect Caribbean island one might expect. It is not too touristy, which was one of the reasons we chose... More

We flew in her from St Lucia to start a day cruise around the neighbouring islands. This is not a tourist destination and its charm lies in that fact. Do not expect high end hotels or restaurants here but for the more serious traveller this is a piece of the genuine Caribbean.

Union Island Clifton is a neat and pretty little town on the harbor. Visually it is quite attractive. It is a short walk from one end to the other perhaps 4 blocks. The area in front of the pier has a hotel and a couple of nice restaurants. Colorful small shops, bars and fruit stands line the road. The harbor... More
