Quaint Town of Port Elizabeth - Bequia
The small Caribbean island of Bequia (only 7 square miles) is a unique cruise stop and those who have a chance to do it will be well rewarded. Only small ships can anchor alongside the yachts in Bequia’s main port at Admiralty Bay. From here you can explore the small but pretty town of Port Elizabeth (see photo). English is the native language and visitors will be treated with friendliness that is a well-known characteristic for Bequians.

Those wanting a delightful Caribbean beach day can head over to the secluded and unspoiled Princess Margaret Beach (so named because Princess Margaret once swam there). It is a beautiful beach with plenty of shade available from trees (see photo).

There is a nice snorkeling area to the far left right off Princess Margaret Beach out from the rocks (see photo). For reasonable prices, lounge chairs are available for rent from local vendors who also sell beer and rum punch. In 2018, it was a $10 taxi ride south from town. You can also walk there in about 20 minutes along the Belmont Walkway with a climb with stairs over a hill.

On Princess Margaret Beach there is a nice restaurant beach bar called Jack’s where you can have lunch and drinks looking out at the picturesque harbor and down the beautiful beach. Next to Jack’s water taxis are available for the ride back to the pier.
