Spring is an area around a 10 minute drive to the main harbour in Bequia - with its array of restaurants and bars. For stays in this area guests have an option of using the plentiful island taxis or private car hire for exploring the island.
There are a selection of safe trails of different grades for those that enjoy walking - Including a must visit location for guests staying in this area, "Spring view park", with its wonderful views down the Grenadine Islands and across to St Vincent.
Spring bay has its own development free, coconut-palm fringed beach - and is a wonderful natural option for morning walks with the sun rising over the adjacent islands of Battowia & Baliceaux.
The area is characterised by private villas of various sizes offering a range of accommodation suitable for singles, couples and groups of all sizes. Additionally the Firefly Hotel, Bar and Restaurant are located in Spring bay - giving further accommodation options.
Spring benefits from the cooling Atlantic breezes. Many guests find that a morning spent at the Leeward beaches, is perfectly complimented by a return to their villa for some poolside relaxation in the heat of the afternoon sun. These breezes help to keep mosquitos at bay - meaning that this area is often popular with visitors that are sensitive to that particular tropical nuisance.
A further 5 minutes along the windward side of Bequia you will reach Crescent Beach - in Industry bay. Any "Industry" in this area is a distant memory - with the area now characterised by a small collection of Villas and the "Sugar Reef, Hotel, Bar and Restaurant".
The "Sugar Reef" is a beautiful location serving wonderful selection of modern Caribbean food and cocktails - and should be on any visitor to Bequia's "must do list".
This is a very peaceful part of the island, very safe for walks, visitors often find the beach itself is often deserted. Again most villas in this location benefit from the Atlantic breezes and have spectacular views across Grenadine islands.
On the Leeward side of the Island you will find the popular Beaches of Princess Margaret (known locally as Tony Gibbons beach) & Lower bay.
Both stretches of golden sand deliver that tropical paradise of your minds eye.
Princess Margaret beach has a small selection of accommodation and is home to Jacks bar - surely one of best beach bars in the world.
Lower bay, has a wider selection of accommodation, from Villa's to Apartments.
Both beach areas are linked to the main harbour via a walkway / trail. Whilst this is a good alternative for linking the three areas during daylight periods, taxis are a better option after dark.
Lower bay has several bar / restaurant options for both daytime and evening entertainment.
Overall, it should be remembered that Bequia is a relatively small island. Where as it would not be practical to continually travel from the Leeward to the Windward coasts on the larger Caribbean islands, Bequia's size makes this a simple exercise - often only requiring a 10 minute journey. Bequia's geography therefore allows the visitor to get the best of both options.
