SAINT VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES
St Vincent is composed of partially submerged volcanic mountains with luxuriant vegetation and black sand beaches watched over by slumbering La Soufrière. The Grenadines are equally lush with secluded coves, spectacular coral reefs and rainforests.
The island remained a Spanish possession until 1627, when it was granted to the British Lord Carlisle. Ownership of St. Vincent was then disputed between France and Britain in the 18th century, before being ceded to the British in 1783. The average yearly temperature in St. Vincent is a balmy 27ºC. However, from May to October rain is frequent in the mountains.
