A must do. I love this spot. If you can go here please make it a priority. Clearest warmest, calmest swimming waters i have every seen. I loved this site and agree it is a must do. You will need a good boat captain but i will return again and again if i can.

The sand is beautiful, lovely little island, with a shelter, very romantic setting, the different colours of the sea are amazing, a must to visit.

Somewhere between Union Island and Petit St. Vincent there is a magic place: Mopion - an isle (white sand bar) surrounded by a shallow reef. Simply beautiful! A solid wooden umbrella provides good shade. Relax and roll your eyes over the turquoise sea. It's a dreamy spot, unspoiled.
The reef around Mopion is fun to explore.
We came to Mopion with Isle of Reefs Tours from Carriacou. Excellent experience!! Don't miss Mopion!

Not many places you can you find a desert island like this. Nothing there except a straw umbrella. Island is about 60 foot long by 20 wide

Mopion is probably the most romantic place in the Caribbean to propose to your favourite person. It is a special place where you arrive by boat and if you are lucky, there won't be anyone else on the island for a few hours. You can jog around it in less than 30 seconds and each direction that you look there is another Island to see and take a photograph. This is what makes the Grenadines so special. Mopion is closest to PSV (Petite Saint Vincent) which is about 5 minutes away on a small speed boat and about 20 minutes away from Union Island. Some care needs to be taken in getting there as it is surrounded by reefs and therefore best to hire someone who frequently visits Mopion. You will also need to choose a good day as it disappears when the weather is bad. I used a speed boat from Clifton called Bitters and carried my own life jacket as not all the speed boats have them. This should be a mandatory requirement nowadays. Surprisingly, cycling with a helmet, is now a requirement on Union Island.
If you are visiting The Grenadines or Carriacou, it is worth arranging a trip to Mopion for an hour or more. It really is very tiny and can be very hot as there is just the one shaded area. Not much to see if you are snorkeling and the north side is mostly coral, but there was a guy who was kite surfing from Mopion and headed south towards Petite Martinique, which is also worth a visit. Overall, it is a good adventure so remember to bring a camera and some water to drink. After Mopion, I then went over to PSV and enjoyed some snorkelling in the clear waters, then returned to Union Island.

Deserted beach in a deep blue sea. Go early before everyone else finds this piece pf paradise. Spend time snorkeling the reefs that surround or just lay on the beach and listen to the waves.

We sailed here from our resort Palm Island for the sunset. It is just a sand bank with a parasol and mostly it is just you on the island! The sunset can be seen beautifully from the island so it is perfect for a romantic trip!

We spent a week sailing from Grenada to St. Vincent and the Grenadines and back, spending the night at many locations. This night we were anchored just of the coast of PSV, and my wife and I took the dingy over to check out Mopion Island.

We had the island to ourselves, and was one of the most memorable parts of our vacation. its a most do if you are in the area.

I have a video of it on Youtube but I can't put a link, its not allowed, but google Mopion island - Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, you will probably find it or similar ones, it really lets you see just how remote and tiny this island is.

After a rough swim with a pregnant wife over the corals, we were treated to this secluded island! Not much to do but that's the point, watching the clouds pass by, it's spectacular.

Actually located a couple of miles off Petit St Vincent it is pretty to look at but could never be the object of a specific visit from St Vincent itself some 30 miles north. A word of caution if sailing in the vicinity it changes shape and size constantly , sometimes disappearing completely and should be given substantial sea room.
