The nation of Saint Vincent and The Grenadines is composed of eight islands of which Bequia is the second largest after the "mainland" St Vincent. Only seven sq miles, the island is home to around 6,500 souls. The other islands in the nation are Bequia's sister isle Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union Island, Palm Island and Carriacou. Bequia is a small old-fashioned Caribbean island with a working port and small fishing industry. It is connected with the other Grenadine islands by a local ferry service.

Famous for its sea-faring tradition, with its natural horseshoe shaped harbour, Bequia  has long been known to sailors. Its natural beauty, island charm and open friendly people of African, Scottish, Irish, French, Indian and Carib descent make Bequia a perfect place to relax and unwind.

Dragonfly is situated on Lower Bay which is the largest beach on the Caribbean side of the island. This is widely thought to be the finest swimming beach in the Grenadines. It is safe and current free. The sand is white and the water warm year round. The bay has three beach bars which serve cold drinks and simple hot food.

The island has both Caribbean Sea facing beaches and also Atlantic facing beaches. These differ in character. The Caribbean beaches are hotter and the sea is calmer and clearer with no weed. The Atlantic facing beaches usually have a breeze and there will always be waves lapping at the shore which in places can get big at certain times.

Bequia's town, Port Elizabeth, has all the necessary shops you will need. From here the national ferry service will take you to explore the other beautiful islands of the Grenadines. There are also some excellent restaurants to choose from. Diving equipment is available and boating trips can be organised. Highly recommended is a day trip to the beautiful Tobago Cays to experience some of the finest snorkelling and diving in the world.
