St. Vincent and the Grenadines is considered by most as a honeymoon type destination, which is certainly true of the Grenadines, while St Vincent is a great place for adventure holidays. Made up of the island of St. Vincent and several islands (the Grenadines) the country is situated in the Lesser Antilles chain in the southern Winward Islands in the Caribbean. Most people will be familiar with the islands of Bequia and Mustique, but the main island also has lots to offer. On the west (Leeward) coast you will find waterfalls and rock pools. Two hours' drive from Kingstown, on the west of the island, the beautiful Dark View Falls are worth the detour. Close to the town of Richmond, the falls are easily accessible and only a 10-15 walk from the car park (10 of which is uphill). Make sure you are aware that the bamboo bridge is actually closed (although not cordoned off); there is a badly signposted but sturdier bridge along the river. There are two pools which make up the spectacle; the lower receiving water from 33m above and the upper from slightly higher. Also in the vicinity are Trinity Falls and Falls of Baleine each more difficult to access and open intermittently so check before heading out.
