Vehicle hire is not essential - there is a beautiful cliff-side trail into the Harbour (Port Elizabeth) and over to Lower Bay. Located at Princess Margaret Beach on Bequia, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in The World. Walk to and from the beach and Jack's Bar - an exceptional Caribbean beach bar & restaurant - in your swim gear. The island is a favourite destination in the Caribbean for sailors from all over the world. It is common to see the world's most expensive yachts moored offshore. Yachties love restaurants and bars, so Bequia offers an excellent choice. The island also has some good musicians. Popular with divers and walkers; the most experienced divers are not disappointed. Bequia has undeveloped countryside with majestic views when 'out and about'. There are no big resorts. Swimming is wonderful at Princess Margaret. The water is usually clear for snorkelling around the headland and there is a sophisticated beach bar with great food. Jack's Bar provides a jetty to catch water taxis to the harbour where the dive boats, shops, and more bars and restaurants are located or for an enjoyable trip around the harbour to admire the majestic vessels at anchor. Facing west, the views are wonderful and the sunsets magical. More

Princess Margaret beach and Jacks Bar/Restaurant is a four minute walk away. The only time that we could hear any sound coming from Jacks Bar was during a live music night. The live music was not overly loud and everything was silent by bed time....More

This was our 13th trip to Bequia. In previous years, we had stayed at the Frangipani, but decided to try something different. We spent 9 nights at the Shade of Blues Apartment and totally enjoyed the experience. We would certainly consider staying there again. The...More

About the neighbourhood
A small community of luxury villas. Located close to Princess Margaret Beach. Peaceful at night, except Tuesday when it is Jack's party night (until midnight).
Getting around
We do not recommend vehicle hire for our guests, but do offer a private car park if needs must. Bequia is small - it is easy for fit folks to walk almost everywhere from A Shade of Blues - but bear in mind the island is hilly. Taxis are inexpensive for night time outings and our water taxis offer a magical experience across the bay. There is a cliff-side trail from Princess Margaret to Port Elizabeth and over to Lower Bay. Sensible shoes needed.
