St. Vincent / Caribbean
The island of St. Vincent belongs to the Lesser Antilles and builds together with the Grenadines the island state of St. Vincet and the Grenadines. Capital of the island is Kingstown on the south coast. The island has long been administered by Britain and France, but became autonomous at the end of the 70s and today engages primarily in the export bananas, but also sugar and cotton are grown.
On the island there is much to experience and discover, because the beautiful landscape is extremely diverse: sometimes sandy coasts, sometimes dense forest, sometimes steep mountains. The volcano Soufrière lies, for example, in the north of the island. It is not yet extinct and has sprout a great flora since its last eruption 1979. There are also many caves, tunnels and waterfalls. Of course, the capital is also worth a stay, especially because of its colonial architecture and the rum. St. Vincent can also be the starting point for a visit to the quieter Grenadines. That the wonderful Caribbean island also boasts an exciting and mysterious underwater world as well as romantic sunsets, long beaches and various water sports stands to reason.
