Inland St. Vincent

St Vincent

St Vincent is the largest island in the group of some 30 that make up St Vincent and the Grenadines. The nearest neighbours in the Caribbean are Grenada, St. Lucia and Barbados. The population is about 110,000 of which a quarter live in the area of Kingstown, the capital, and a mere 8% live on the Grenadines.

The island of St Vincent has a moutainous interior, including an active volcano (La Soufriere) reaching a height of 4,000ft (1220m) in the north. The temperature averages 27 C (81 F) and is coolest between November and February.

Banana production is still the major industry but tourism is growing - helped by the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, partly filmed in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Tourist accommodation on St Vincent is concentrated at Villa and Indian Bays and most of the hotels are small, varying from guest houses to luxury hotels.
