Travelling with babies, toddlers children and little ones to the small friendly Bequia and Saint Vincent and The Grenadines . . . Top Tips

Babies Love Bequia :)

Everyone loves babies on Bequia - wherever you go, you will receive a friendly welcome and a helping hand. This island is idyllic for children as well as adults - how relaxing to chill out on the beach and watch your little ones playing nearby in the white sand.

Here are our top tips to allow for you and your children to have the best Bequia experience :)

Pack & Play Cot
Simply ask our on Island team to arrange this for you
Car Seat We recommend car hire for most of the villas on island, to make exploring Bequia even easier and allowing you to fit more in during your vacation
Skin So Soft This amazing cream seems to have a magical gift for keeping those mosquitoes away, and of course is the just the thing for your little one after a day in the sunshine. Just ask the Grenadine Island Villas Team about acquiring this - the local supermarkets are sure to have it and we would be pleased to have some ready for you at your villa upon arrival
30 SPF factor sun cream you can never have too much sun cream, go for one that is easy to apply
Nappy & Baby Kit simply email the team with a list of all you will need and we can have it ready and waiting for you at your villa.
The Manchineel Tree This tree provides great shade on the beach for you to set up camp under on a dry day, but don't stand underneath when it is raining - the sap is poisonous. Also beware that the fruit that falls from the trees are not to be touched as they may irritate the skin, and are poisonous
Hospital Bequia has a small hospital, and there is also one in Mustique. You can fly to Martinique or Barbados for more serious injuries - if in doubt talk to our team for assistance with any ill or injured children.
Lower Bay Natural Baby Pool! Lower Bay is the best beach for children, due to the shallow, warm lagoon created naturally by a small reef by the shore.

Top 10 fun activities for children staying on Bequia in St Vincent & The Grenadines

There is so much to do on our beautiful Caribbean Island, here are our top 10 favourite activities for kids!

2. Visit the Turtle Sanctuary This is a fantastic project to help save the beautiful Hawksbill Turtle, run by a man with a passion for these amazing animals. Take a fun ride in an open backed taxi to visit the sanctuary, not to be missed!
