St Vincent and the Grenadines!

Happy Independence Day St Vincent and the Grenadines!

With yacht-filled harbours, chic private isles and beautiful volcanic landscapes, St Vincent and the islands of the Grenadines are known for their natural landscapes and picturesque white-sand beaches.

The 27th October commemorates the independence of the islands from the United Kingdom on this day in 1979. The day is marked with military parades, carnivals, cultural exhibitions, official speeches, ceremonies, and many other festive events. 💃🎆🎉

Did you know…?

  • The fortunes of the islands have depended on the activity of La Soufrière, an active volcano on St. Vincent that has erupted with deadly effect many times since 1718.
  • This beautiful country grows bananas, sweet potatoes, coconuts and spices; they also rear cattle and catch fish and their national dish is Fried Jackfish and Breadfruit! ⁠😋⁠
