About Us

Friendship Garden Apartments are owned and run by a local family. We also operate a taxi service and do pickups and drop offs anywhere on the island. Our jeep rentals are another fun way to get around.


Our apartments are situated in a quiet area on Bequia's windward side (Atlantic), on calm and sheltered Friendship Bay. Get directions to the apartments here!

About Bequia

Located nine miles south of mainland St. Vincent, Bequia is the largest of the Grenadine Islands that runs between the two Island states of St. Vincent and Grenada. The Island is about 5 miles long and a half mile wide.

Bequia has a year-round population of about 6,000. So while there are a few widely placed pockets where more then a half dozen houses are clustered, the island is otherwise sparsely populated with the ambiance of a large garden.

The land is rather hilly and green. Flowers are everywhere you look, all the year around. Colorful birds of more than one-hundred types abound. Beautiful white-sand beaches and crystal clear waters are ideal for all sorts of water sports and a great underwater-world experience. But ski-boats and similar intrusive devices are discouraged.

We are friendly people who would make your visit here one to remember. It is no co-incidence that Jimmy Buffet, the famous American singer, songwriter and Chief Parrot Head, says in his auto-biography, that Bequia is his favorite island.

Come visit and we'll show you why he's right!
