  • An Unremarkable Monument with Remarkable Views

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A monument to Chatoyer, a Carib tribal chieftain killed in the Brigands War, is located on Dorsetshire Hill on St. Vincent. The monument is a forgettable, but historic, curiosity located next to, of all things, SVG's main television and radio station. However, the views make it worth the trip.

    THE HIGHPOINT OF ST. VINCENT...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE HIGHPOINT OF ST. VINCENT IS CALLED SOUFRIERE, WHICH LITERALLY MEANS VOLCANO. ELEVATION: 1234 METERS. IT IS A FAIRLY ACTIVE VOLCANO. HERE IS SOME INFO ON IT TAKEN FROM THE WEB: Soufriere of the island of St. Vincent is about 180 miles (300 km) south of the volcano with the same name on Guadeloupe. Soufriere on St. Vincent is a far more dangerous volcano. It is a stratovolcano with a crater lake. Violent eruption occurred in 1718, 1812, and 1902. The 1902 eruption killed 1,600 people. There were also eruptions in 1971-1972 and 1979. The 1979 eruption started with less than 24 hours of precursor activity. The first episode lasted less than two weeks. It was vulcanian in character and sent steam and tephra as high as 12 miles (20 km). The second episode consisted of the quiet extrusion of a basaltic andesite lava dome. People were successfully evacuated and there were no fatalities.

    We were married on petite St. Vincent , a wonderful romantic island.
    Unspoiled ,beautiful relaxing privacy is what this island is about .
    The whole island is incredibly pruned , raked ,and kept clean.
    The staff at petite went so far out of their way to help with the wedding .
    From organizing, decorating, finding ,and fulfilling those ' got to have this at the wedding ' requests .
    They are the reason the wedding worked so beautifully!

    Women's Prison in Kingstown

    by Koreena Written Jun 15, 2007

    Just outside of Kingstown is a Fort (Charolette) which is one of the few 'touristy' things to do in St Vincent. Just outside the fort is the women's prison which you can walk around the perimeter - it is very dismal conditions!

    At the fort there is also an interesting display of art documenting the history of colonization in St Vincent.

    The most quaint local beach

    by Koreena Written Jun 15, 2007

    This beach is in an area called Brighton which is a small little village on the south/east coast of St Vincent - Brighton Salt Pond Beach. There is always lots of 'keep up', beach soccer, and cricket happening on the beach. It is mostly locals in this area with the odd tourist and they are friendly and social. Sometimes you might even catch a bit of party going on with loud soca music, food and drink.

    Take a crazy cab ride

    by Chinacat1969 Written Oct 25, 2005

    On our way to the volcano, we rode in an open air cab for about 1 1/2 hours. We hugged the rugged coast of the island almost the whole way. We stopped at a banana farm in the jungle so our guide could purchase us some fresh picked bananas for our climb. We then stopped in Georgetown and got water and hot curried roti's for our fanny packs too! Georgetown is very poor. There are shanty homes along the coast and the little restaurant that we purchased our food from looked like it appreciated the business. The roti was excellent and great soul food at the top of the climb.
