Young Island Resort 

This private island just off the coast of St Vincent has watersports, great food and a boutique feel.

British Governor, Sir William Young exchanged his horse for this leafy Grenadines island nearly 300 years ago, and its name has stuck ever since. The eponymous and only hotel here is an exclusive retreat nestled in 13 acres of tropical palms and jasmine – it’s Robinson Crusoe-esque but never feels too remote, as you’re only 183 metres and a three-minute private ferry ride from St Vincent’s southern shoreline. A stay on Young Island is designed to be restful and romantic, but there’s still plenty to do – head to the beach for complimentary watersports including kayaking and snorkelling.

Why we love Young Island Resort

  • This hideaway resort sits on its own private Grenadines island and surrounded by the crystal clear Caribbean Sea

  • The rustic-chic cottages are located either right on the beach or up on the hillside hidden away in tropical greenery

  • Swim out to the floating bar (a Grenadines institution) for an uber-refreshing Coconut Delight cocktail

  • Listen to the waves and the sounds of the Caribbean as you receive a muscle-soothing massage
