Arrived in Bequia the day after the caught one of the three whales they are allowed to hunt each year. The whaling station was within view from Friendship Bay and water taxis would shuttle interested persons to and from the island.

This is a very beautiful and quiet beach. It has a fantastic resort (Bequia Beach Resort) located right on the beach. The water is nice, however there is some seaweed similar to blades of grass that float on top of the water.

Good for walking & running as it is long. Great for swimming as water is clear and most relaxing. Our resort BBH is right on the beach which was perfect
