Bequia's climate is close to ideal. Too far south to suffer the onslaught of major hurricanes, cooled by the tradewinds for most of the year, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 33 degrees Celsius (70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit), there is little difference in climate throughout the year.
Bequia's most notable feature is the large and inviting harbour of Admiralty Bay which has attracted people since the seventeenth century. Bequia's long history of boat making, includes a boat commissioned by Bob Dylan named the Water Pearl, was built by hand on the Gingerbread grounds. Today, The Friendship Rose which was built in Bequia and was once used as a ferry from Bequia to the mainland of St. Vincent offers trips to the Tobago Cays and Mustique.
Gingerbread Hotel is located on the southeast shore of the Harbour on what is known as the Belmont Walkway. Pat Mitchell who was married to Sir James Mitchell, the former Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, ran the Gingerbread Hotel for over 30 years. Today, her family carries on the tradition.
Foodies who love fresh local ingredients love Bequia. Organic locally grown fruits and vegetables are readily available at the marketplace. Freshly caught seafood is a staple on this little gem of an island with a variety of restaurants to choose from.
Most nights of the week you can find at least one location that is featuring live music. There is something for everyone, so you can sit with your feet in the sand and listen to steal pan or dance the night away at a live music festival.
Nature has already painted the pictures for us. Breathtaking views will surround you. Bequia is home to beautiful white sand beaches, colorful flowers, scenic hikes and water so clear that you can watch tropical fish swim below you.
