Princess Margaret Beach is considered one of the most beautiful in The World. When you stay there, you can enjoy it almost to yourselves early and late in the day. The villa faces west to enjoy the sunsets, which are sometimes magical. As are the views of the anchorage, beach and ocean. No need for vehicle hire.

There is a cliff-side trail into The Harbour and over to Lower Bay. Water taxis from Jack's jetty are fun and not expensive. Bequia land taxis are a unique travel experience, not expensive and the drivers will take good care of their customers. Bequia is a yachties heaven. Many of the world's most celebrated yachts anchor offshore, both large and small. Friendship Rose, a classic schooner, offers splendid day trips to Mustique, the closest island, or to Tobago Cays. The two excellent Dive Shops accommodate divers of all levels of skill, including beginners. The dive sites are considered some of the world's most interesting. Google Moonhole or Devil's Table and there is fun snorkelling off Princess Margaret Bequia offers bars and restaurants with entertainment for all tastes. A Shade of Blues villa is divided into two independent living quarters - the main house and a 2-bedroom apartment above. When making a booking for the villa you have the option to ensure that the apartment is not rented so that you can have the pool and property privately to yourselves. There is an additional rent of $US per week for the Private To You option. There are spectacular views from the kitchen, dining balcony and balcony off the bedroom - a joy to wake up to. And an exercise room for those that want to improve their fitness when on vacation. The major joy of A Shade of Blues is being so close to one of The World's Most Beautiful Beaches, so wonderful to swim and snorkel. More

About the neighbourhood
There is a debate about which is The Best Beach on Bequia. Many, perhaps the majority, consider Princess Margaret to be the best. Princess Margaret is off the main road. Undeveloped except for Jack's Bar - a sophisticated Caribbean beach bar restaurant. Has white sand, a clear sea, good snorkeling around the headland. It is often without many people except when the cruise ships dislodge their passengers, and even then it is not that crowded and you can find quiet space. There are less surges at Princess Margaret when the seas are churnin. Guests at A Shade of Blues can easily choose when to take their swims as the beach is conveniently close. There is a cliff-side Trail from The Harbour (Port Elizabeth) over to Princess Margaret and Lower Bay. No need for vehicle hire from...
How to get there
Most straightforward routing is via Barbados or St Lucia with a connecting flight on Grenadines Airways to Bequia. This is a private airline with a regular schedule. Bookable via Mustique or SVG Airways direct. Other routings via St Vincent on LIAT often end up with overnight accommodation. It is good to arrive into Bequia by ferry or boat. Always check Bequia ferry companies, Bequia Express or Admiralty Transport for their latest schedule when your flight schedules depend on them. Guests at A Shade of Blues who are sailing in can anchor off Princess Margaret and use Jack's Bar jetty to unload. Always pack your swimsuit and any overnight requirements in your hand luggage. Two center holiday options include Grenada, St Lucia, Barbados, all with direct flights in and out of St Vincent.
