Why Stay At Young Island Resort
A true Caribbean idyll: 29 cottages on a private island in the northernmost reaches of the Grenadines.
Young Island is your private island fantasy, hidden in the northernmost reaches of the Grenadines. The 35-acre isle—a five-minute ferry ride from the shore of Kingstown, St. Vincent—once belonged to 18th-century British governor Sir William Young. Now, it's a private-island Grenadine resort with 29 cottages, each furnished with an outdoor shower and handmade wicker furnishings. Days are spent by the saltwater pool, at the floating Coconut Bar, or snorkeling with damselfish just beyond the strip of white-sand beach. At the hillside Kalina Spa, open sliding doors let in the sounds of Amazon parrots from the lobby-side aviary, and the distant hum of tree frogs.
Keep an eye out of the island's elusive agouti, a shy, furry animal, for bragging rights at the resort's Captain Bligh Bar.
Order the resort's rum punch or the flambéed Creole French toast—both are made with St. Vincent's popular Sunset Rum, a 160-proof concoction that's only available in the archipelago.
Arrive at E.T. Joshua Airport (SVD) which is approximately 2.5 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 5 minutes of travel time.1 Young Island Crossing, Saint Vincent, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Why We Love Young Island
Thanks to a new airport (scheduled to open in 2013), the 32 lush islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will soon be easier to get to than ever. (Currently, most flights come direct from Barbados.) The island archipelago is a mecca for sailors, as well as beachgoers looking for crystal clear water and laidback hotels.
From $650 per night, including meals.
Where to Eat: For a dinner on St. Vincent, try the candlelit French Verandah, on the Mariner's Hotel terrace overlooking Villa Bay. In addition to traditional French dishes, you'll also find local recipes, such as yellowfin tuna with coconut and mango.
Villa Bay Beach.
Dinner for two $60.
Best Day Trip: Explore St. Vincent's still-active, 4,000-foot La Soufrière Volcano with a guide from Richmond Vale Nature and Hiking Center. The six-hour tour starts at Kingston's port, and concludes with lunch.
Tours from $85.
