    Located in the Lesser Antilles in the far southern reaches of the Caribbean is the island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Just a hop, skip and a boat ride away from the island of Carriacou, which belongs to the country of Grenada. This is an idyllic part of the world, and the perfect place for sailing, relaxing and scuba diving!

    Whether you're interested in learning about the history of the Grenadines, relaxing on pure white sand beaches, or island hopping in a sailboat, this incredible island chain has something to offer everyone. Visiting year-round can be enjoyable, with some benefits for off-season travellers.

    Here are 15 Photos that will make you want to book your trip to the Grenadines!
