An unforgettable drive and hike will bring you to the unforgettable rim of an active volcano. Soufriere is one of St. Vincent's claims to fame and draws visitors from all over to its peak. The crater pockets a scenic lake that, on a clear day, reflects pretty blue sky. Soufriere's last eruption occurred in 1979, with previous eruptions averaging every 70 to 100 years. So, unless you are planning a visit to St. Vincent sometime around 2050, don't be too concerned. 

On a visit to the island of Mustique, you may rub elbows with celebrity home owner Mick Jagger (just don't ask him to sing). The late Princess Margaret helped make the island famous as she had a home there too. Better yet, you may rub noses with some of the (more beautiful) underwater sea creatures during a snorkeling excursion in Britannia Bay.

About an hour from St. Vincent by ferry (much longer if you swim) is the island of Bequia. Bequia is the largest of the Grenadine Islands, with an area of seven square miles. With no fast food restaurants or tourist traps to impede you, head straight for the set of the block buster movie,  Pirates of the Caribbean movies which were filmed there. Be sure to bring your blunderbuss and black eye-shadow. 

Visit the Windward Coast area of the island. Here, you will find black-sand beaches (from the volcano), and several more secluded beaches, such as Argyle and Brighton Beaches, where the powerful, tumbling waves are fun to watch.
