Luggage and bags: Travel light, with no more than one standard sized suit case, especially if you plan to stay in multiple locations in SVG. All the resorts provide reasonably priced cleaning.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Swimsuits, shorts, and t-shirts are an obvious necessity. Aqua shoes, flip flops, and if you are planning on hiking up the volcano on St. Vincent, hiking shoes are a must. Tennis shoes are needed if you plan to play tennis, and golf shoes if you plan on golfing at Carenage Resort on Canouan. Long pants are necessary for both dinner and if you plan to hike up the volcano on St. Vincent. Men should also have collared shirts for dinner. Women should bring sun dresses or similar attire to wear to dinner. Although the resorts usually provide them, an umbrella might be a good idea.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Musquito repellant is not a bad idea, though most resorts provide it. Also, stomach remedies are good to have. The food and water are safe, but sometimes strange food and water can hit the stomach the wrong way, and public restrooms are not abundant.
Photo Equipment: Camera for certain, but also bring lots of film and extra batteries. Prices for film and batteries are astronomical! That said, I took 16 rolls of 36 exposure film on my last trip. There is lots to see and photograph.Add to your Trip Planner
