New SVG Website

To unveil the best of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, a new website at specifically focuses on four key niche products – yachting and charters, diving and snorkeling, eco-adventures and weddings and honeymoons – and makes it easy to explore each option. uses graphics and interactive maps to highlight the charm of SVG’s nine inhabited islands – St. Vincent, Young Island, Bequia, Canouan, Union, Mayreau, Mustique, Palm Island, Petit St. Vincent – and Tobago Cays (inhabited only by marine, plant and animal life).

The site is also easy to navigate and abounds with practical tips and useful information including “getting there,” “what to do,” “where to stay,” and a gallery of photographs capturing the visual allure of the 32-island chain’s natural and cultural attractions. A regularly updated “latest news” section proffers inside advice to media, as well as to travelers, on recent developments and news in SVG.

To complement the new website, SVG also updated its social networking pages including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and Blogger, giving visitors and locals the platforms from which to engage in lively conversations and exchange their own stories, news and updates.
