St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Union Island- the Grenadine Outpost

Union Island feels like an outpost of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and it really is. Its one of the islands furtherst South, far away from any cruiseships, big airports or mass tourism.

Union Island was the place in the Caribbean that I had been looking forward to the most. People have told me that its the most chill place ever and that people who are supposed to be just passing theough end up staying there for ages. That is why I had set off most time og all Carribbean Islands, but already after two nights I am starting growing a bit tired of it.

Personally I think the place is way too segregated. It is a very local island, but the North Part of the Island by the Airport is occupied by kiteboarders living in their own little bubble which was a bit sad to see.

It has been nice though, just hang out at the Kiteboarding Beach, watching the kiteboarders go from dawn until dusk, jumping over the reef, sandbanks and even the small floating bar called “the Happy Island”. Also there is lots of places to go on day trips like Mayreau and the Tobago Keys which I stopped at with the sailboat on my way here from Bequia.
