Out of all the Caribbean islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines makes the best romantic getaway. For my escape, I stayed at Palm Island Resort, which is the ultimate honeymoon destination. Most days it felt like I had the island all to myself. It is hard to beat having crystal clear water, soft sand beaches, and no one in sight. Truly it felt like the most romantic dream, and I feel blessed to have gone. Without a doubt, I’m already planning my next couple’s getaway.
Palm Island Resort – I stayed at the breathtaking private island resort where there are just a few rooms, each a private villa most overlooking the ocean. I would highly recommend this location for a honeymoon spot, as it is was very private. Most days I found myself enjoying the tranquillity of having the beach to myself where I could swim or enjoy kayaking to my heart’s content.

Tobago Cays – 5 uninhabited islands surrounded by crystal clear coral reefs filled with colorful fish and turtles.
Rum tasting – St. Vincent and the Grenadines is covered in sugar plantations, and the ample molasses from the sugar is used in rum-making. Upon arriving at the resort I was handed a rum punch to welcome me, and I certainly ended up developing a new appreciation for rum. While visiting, I suggest trying the locally made Captain Bligh XO rum which won the World’s Best Rum award in 2015.
This by far was my most relaxing trip to date, with the majority of my days being spent lounging in the sun with a book and amazing company, swimming or enjoying water sports.
This is one of the restaurant locations at Palm Island resort which was the perfect place to sit with your feet in the sand and watch the ocean while eating fresh seafood and sipping a tropical cocktail.
The villa above was my home for a week, which had a private patio that looked onto the ocean.
The water around Palm Island was amazing, I’ve never seen water so clear, calm and bright aqua like it.
While visiting I also had the fun opportunity to take a cooking class where I learned about making a lobster dish.
I’m so grateful for this trip, it is certainly one I cherish.
