How to get to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines lie in the Lesser Antilles, in the southern Windward Islands of the Caribbean Sea, and are located 40km (25mi) south of St Lucia, 120km (74mi) north of Grenada and 160km (99mi) west of Saint Vincent.

Frequently known simply as Saint Vincent, the sovereign state consists of the main island of Saint Vincent and the northern two-thirds of the Grenadines – a chain of 32 smaller islands.

Saint Vincent at 29km (18mi) long by 18km (11mi) wide is the largest island of the group, followed by Young Island, Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union Island, Palm Island and Petit St Vincent.

The most convenient route to St Vincent and the Grenadines is by air to Argyle International Airport (SVD) (known as Argyle Airport or simply AIA), located about 8km (5mi) from the capital, Kingstown.

Argyle Airport opened on 14 February 2017 replacing the older E.T. Joshua Airport.

St Vincent receives daily direct flights from Grenada, Martinique, St Lucia and Trinidad, with connections to the Grenadines (including Bequia, Mustique, Union Island and Canouan, which each have small airports).

By sea, the Grenadines are accessible by charter yacht, ferry (to Bequia) and by mail boat from St Vincent to Canouan, Mayreau and Union islands.
