Bequia has a wonderful, varied, assortment of beaches for swimming, snorkeling, and sunning. Their best feature is you will never find a crowd! Below are some of the beaches Bequia has to offer. Inquire locally for current conditions and characteristics, as they can change due to weather and other factors.
