Mopion Island

Couples enjoy perfect seclusion on the island of Mopion.

A collection of 32 unspoiled islands and cays in the secluded Southern Caribbean, St. Vincent and the Grenadines offers something for every interest, including some of these hidden treasures.

The Tobago Cays, a protected wildlife reserve of five islets bordered by a giant horseshoe reef, is a renowned sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving mecca. It also has small sand beaches that are perfect for an afternoon barbecue.

Mopion, the quintessential deserted island, is a dollop of brilliant white sand that seems to float magically in clear turquoise sea, with nothing more on it than a single thatched umbrella. It is the idyllic setting for an intimate picnic spot.

Saltwhistle Bayon Mayreau island offers a perfectly shaped half-moon beach outlined by palm trees. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in SVG. With only 250 residents, the island has no airports, no roads and no banks and offers couples an intimate getaway.
