Rum & Reggaes
Grenadines (including St. Vincent & Grenada) is a
thorough, handy and affordable guide and the only book youll
need to the 75-mile-long chain of islands that stretches from
St. Vincent to Grenada. Written with the sharp wit and critical
eye that is Rum & Reggae and geared toward the
savvy and sophisticated traveler, this book highlights what
to see and discover at this remote end of the West Indies.
Well take you to St. Vincent, a relatively undiscovered
destination, complete with spectacular black-sand beaches
and an active volcano. Then well go to the islands which
lie south, all the way to Grenada Bequia, Mustique,
Mayreau, Canouan, the Tobago Cays, Union, Palm, Petit St.
Vincent, Petit Martinique and Carriacou. The Grenadines, as
these islands are called, are a sailors dream, second
only to the British Virgin Islands as the Caribbeans
prime sailing destination. They are also wonderful and untouristed
destinations in their own right. And with more than 25 islands
in the chain (most are uninhabited and can be explored on
day-trips), there are ample opportunities for snorkeling,
scuba diving, beachcombing, and picnics. But youll need
Rum & Reggaes Grenadines to know where and
how to go to these magical places. Then we visit Grenada,
the Spice Isle. Sitting majestically at the southern end of
the Grenadines chain, it is a wonderfully verdant, picturesque,
lively and friendly destination. All the traveler needs to
know is here, from hotel and restaurant recommendations to
the best rum punch, waterfall hike and celebrity hangout.
