Geography

St. Vincent & the Grenadines is a nation of 32 islands located in the Lesser Antilles between St. Lucia (24 miles to the north) and Grenada (75 miles to the south).
The largest and northernmost island is St. Vincent (about 133 square miles) which has a forest-covered mountainous interior that is dominated by La Soufriere, a 4,000ft tall active volcano. On the south west coast is Kingstown, the nation’s capital.
The remaining Grenadines lie to the south of St. Vincent. The largest and most populated are Bequia, Mustique, Canouan and Union Island. Young Island is a small private island right off the coast of Kingstown, St. Vincent. Smaller inhabited islands include Mayreau, Palm Island and Petit St. Vincent. The Tobago Cays is a marine park located to the east of Mayreau and is a collection of five tiny islands, sheltered lagoons and coral reefs.

Climate

We enjoy a tropical climate with the hottest and most humid months between June and September when temperatures reach an average high of 30°C (86°F). The most popular months to visit are between December and May when the climate is more comfortable, though trade winds provide a welcome breeze all year round. The driest months are between January and May and the wettest month is July. There is a theoretical risk of hurricanes between July and November though they usually pass to the north of our islands. 

Electricity

The small private islands of Palm Island and Petit St. Vincent have 110V 60Hz electricity supplies and use a US style 2 pin system. All other islands have 220/240V 50Hz supplies and use a UK style 3 pin system.
