Often people calling looking for a ‘different’ Caribbean experience are not even aware of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, known to the locals as SVG. People may have heard of Mustique in the earlier Mick Jagger days, or more recently from the villa holiday that William and Kate joined the Middletons on. SVG consists of 32 small islands and cays that offer the ultimate Caribbean experience, sort of Robinson Crusoe desert island style, a short flight away from Barbados.

A villa on tiny Mustique is an option, but so is their one exclusive hotel, the Cotton House, a favourite with international jet-setters. Bequia (pronounced Beck-Way) is adorned with villas and also offers the Bequia Beach hotel as their exclusive hideaway. The most popular with my clients is the private island of Palm Island’s sheer escapism. Or Young Island, again a desert island just for you. Another affordable favourite is Canouan, staying at the rustic -newly refurbished – Tamarind Beach hotel in a Beachfront room. Heaven.

Finally for this blog, on St Vincent itself is the relatively new Buccament Bay, a family-friendly all-inclusive resort which is winning awards left, right and centre.

All islands provide a base for sailing to other islands and cays – Tobago Cays has the wow! factor – and diving and snorkelling in some of the best waters in the world. These are magical islands offering holidays of a lifetime!

I’m regularly asked about the cost of eating out in Barbados. My view is that it is as expensive or as cheap as you’d like. The restaurants always highlighted are the fine dining more costly restaurants, such as The Cliff, more about the wonderful ambience and experience. Yes, dining in such places may well be hundreds of pounds but you can go and savour the experience over a cocktail or two instead.

I am still in the anti-All Inclusive in Barbados brigade, but simply because Barbados does not offer the huge All Inclusives like Mexico, Dominican Republic etc, where you don’t really leave your enormous ‘compound’. Despite this, in Barbados Mango Bay and Crystal Cove are firm favourites and Turtle Beach and Casuarina are all great All Inclusive options if you have kids or want to fix your budget.

But Barbados is about the island. Barbados Travel Deals will advise on cheaper places to eat, the street vendors, the ‘white van’ vendors, the fish fries (Oistins in particular) and the supermarkets offering wonderful cooked local food. Alcohol is cheap if you stick to their (light) Banks beer and Mount Gay or Cockspur rum. You don’t need bottled water as Barbados has one of the cleanest water supplies in the world (filtered naturally through limestone) but don’t take my word on that – I just always drink tap water there. Groceries are costly at the supermarket, but it is an island and so most is imported. Look for local foodstuffs and give it a go.

Come to us at Barbados Travel Deals and we will offer plenty of advice and then once booked, we will send you all the information you may need to suit your needs.
