Lower Bay beach adjoins Princess Margaret beach, separated by a rocky outcropping where the snorkelling is really quite good. I stay a week there in a month long trip to St Vincent and the Grenadines. For me it's $100 a night for my cottage/apartment there, and it's only $50 a night for somewhat less well appointed apt on St Vincent. Both are on the beach, and either beach is more or less deserted most of the time. It's the snorkelling I love, and that rocky outcrop between Princess Margaret and Lower Bay is full of surprises. Unusual species end up there. Lobsters hide during the day under ledges. Tourists from Europe flock to Bequia. It's very laid back, and very safe. There are a lot of restaurants, and services for tourists, like SCUBA. St Vincent has an edge to it, I remember a fellow tourist saying. Lots of people have winter residences on Bequia. Real estate development is constant, but Lower Bay has the most protected beach from the constant wind. Sometimes there are a lot of waves. The tourist season in Jan and Feb, coincides with large waves coming in from the north. They can ruin the snorkelling. Bequia is a desert island. They collect rainwater for drinking. The airport has no runway lights, so you will always land there before sunset. There is a steep hill to down to or out of Lower Bay, but the road is much better than the one to Princess Margaret beach. At the far end of the beach there is a village of sorts, but most grocery shopping has to be done in town. It's quite a beautiful place, looking out over the harbour and all the yatchs there, and you can rent a vehicle and drive there, something I would never recommend on the main island of St Vincent. But the $100 a night, and the size of the area I snorkel in, even with the many trails on the island, most of which I have hiked when the waves were bad, means I run out of things to do there after a week. It's a pretty family friendly place, as in very safe, and I would never stay anywhere else but Lower Bay. That's my sweet spot on Bequia.
