To the north of Petite Martinique is an even smaller island called Petite St. Vincent. This privately owned island has only two properties worth mentioning: the Solar Distillation Plant and Petite St. Vincent Resort. Visitors come to the island so they may experience a tranquil vacation on a secluded tropical island where they can truly get away from it all.

Located on Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, You should consider stopping by regardless of whether you're staying nearby. There are plenty of advantages to visiting a beach that hasn't been "discovered" by thousands of tourists; the lovely, less-traveled shores of beaches like Petit St Vincent might not be typical "beach scenes", but are nice and private.

How to Access The Beach

Petite St. Vincent is only accessible by boat.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beaches of Petite St. Vincent cover almost two miles of land and feature pristine white sand, while the waters that surround are so bright blue it almost seems unreal.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. Fortunately, the water here is of good snorkeling quality, so bring your gear if you want to check out what lies beneath the surface.

If you usually go for beaches that offer a peaceful experience, then maybe head on over to Petit St Vincent; it is tucked away in a more natural part of the region.
