Bequia is an island of about 18 sq km, and the only transport links - air and ferry - are between it and St. Vincent, about one hour by boat to the North. I spent half a day on the island, making extensive use of a chartered taxi. The taxis on Bequia are converted pickup trucks; there's passenger seating in the back, and railings to hold on to should you encounter one of the few potholes. Eeehm.

Much like Montserrat and unlike Antigua, Bequia has (relatively) rich fresh water supplies, and thus the vegetation is quite pleasing. The mainstay of Bequia's tourism industry seems to be scuba diving. I found the island to be a very calm and friendly place and was surprised to hear that many locals can trace their roots all the way back to seafaring scots who once dominated the whaling "industry"!
