Welcome to St Vincent on the Paradise Islands website. St Vincent and the Grenadines are part of the Windward Caribbean islands group and St Vincent lies just over 100 miles south west of Barbados and just south of St Lucia. Saint Vincent is a mountainous volcanic island 18 miles long and 11 miles wide. The interior of the island is rugged with lush jungle and vegetation; the island is dominated by La Soufriere, an active volcano in the north (see also Soufriere Montserrat Volcano of the same name).

La Soufriere volcano is 4,000 feet above sea level at it's crater and has erupted twice in recent times; the most serious eruption in 1902 killed 2,000 people and again in 1979 (with no loss of life). 

 

Carib Indians prevented St Vincent from being settled until 18th Century. Ownership of Saint Vincent passed between the British and French and then back to the British in 1763. St Vincent and the grenadines gained full independence from Britain in 1979.

Today the island is a popular tourist destination, particularly with sailors who come in vast numbers to explore the grenadine islands. The most well known is Mustique for it's famous residents and opulent private villas.
