Suggestions for week long stay?

We are traveling to Bequia in Feb. We're staying in a private villa with another couple for a week after a weeklong bareboat sailing charter (St.Vincent pick up, Bequia drop off). Looking for ideas of what to do on island, dining etc. Any suggestions?

Mix a gallon of rum punch, some sandwiches and plant yourself on the beach......watch the world pass you by.

Why not try the Firefly Plantation? Really relaxing and lovely.

Once you've settled in, make your way to Port Elizabeth and have a look around - then take a taxi tour around the island and you'll be able to get an idea of what happens where - and after that - just go with the flow... have a good trip

also go to the bequia tourism website and read Bequia This Week, the local newsletter of what's happening where. The ads are as interesting as the calendar of events

you could try going to a different beaches...Lower Bay (De Reef, Keegans, Mangos), Princess Margaret (Jacks), Friendship Bay (Bagatelle), Industry Beach (not sure when the new restaurant there will be open at Sugar Reef)...

you could take one of the hikes with either Danika or Brent...you could go out on a day trip to Ile de Quatre with Michaels Tours...take the plantation tour at Firefly...spend time chilling out at any of the places along the Belmont Walkway...watch the sunset and hope to see the green flash...

lakeonsailor - don't try to pack too much in a week. I would suggest you plan you're holiday around where you're going to eat in the evenings and, as has been suggested earlier, chill out in the day. A good place to hang out is under the Almond Tree and watch the world that is Bequia, pass by...................

L'AUBERGE : excellent lobster and most refreshing vodka tonic on island

Frangipani Hotel/Bar : Thursday night buffet with steel drum band

and like stones1967 said :
