An Instagram Photo Tour of St Vincent and the Grenadines

Posted on April 27, 2013 by

We’re reporting live from Liming Live Week in St Vincent and the Grenadines! We’re having a fantastic week chilling, island-hopping, exploring and hanging out with friends. Read more about it here

The sun is setting and showering the whole area in sparkling gold as I dive into the warm Atlantic Ocean. The coconut trees on the white pearly beach are swaying, while soft reggae music play gently in the background. As the locals like to say, “We’re on Caribbean time, man.”

We’re on Young Island, a private island resort just off the southern tip of St Vincent, and we’re here to learn more about the Caribbean’s favorite past time of liming. As active full-time travelers, we’re constantly out and about and we hardly have time to relax on the beach and unwind. So this trip is a refreshing change for us and we’re thoroughly enjoying the slow pace. It’s been easy getting into the Caribbean rhythm – waking up to the sound of lapping waves, hopping on the bus to explore the island come afternoon, and settling in for cocktails and Caribbean food at sunset.

We’ve spent the past few days wandering around the nation’s big island, St Vincent – driving along its west coast visiting secret coves and fishing villages, dining on local breadfruit and fish on the beach, swimming in waterfalls, dancing on the busy streets of Heritage Square with thousands of Vincentians, and even climbing the 4,028-feet high La Soufriere Volcano. It’s perfect for us – plenty of time to kick back on the beach with bits of outdoor adventure and island exploration mixed in between.

Here’s a peek at some of our Instagram photos from St Vincent and the Grenadines - pardon us for the low quality images, they’re taken with our iPhone. To see more of them, head over to our #SVGLiming Instagram wall.
