BOTANICAL GARDENS: These gardens are the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. Established in 1765, they cover 20 acres and are overlooked by the Governor General's House. Among the many tropical plants can be found a descendant of the original Breadfruit tree which Captain Bligh brought to the island.
THE VERMONT NATURE TRAIL : There are two marked trails starting near the top of Buccament Valley. They lead through virgin tropical rain forests where there is a good chance of seeing (or hearing) the St. Vincent Parrot (Amazons Guildingii) and the Whistling Warbler, both unique to St. Vincent.
LA SOUFRIERE: This volcano last erupted on April 13, 1979. The climb to its peak is approximately 4,048 feet and is mostly for the energetic and physically fit. This trip can be arranged through the front office, and a guide is recommended.
MONTREAL GARDENS: A visit to Montreal Gardens is via the Mesopotamia Valley. It is high in the mountain and has a magnificent view across ridges and valleys to the sea.
MESOPOTAMIA VALLEY: The panoramic views here are probably unsurpassed in the Caribbean, surrounded by mountain ridges with Mount Grand Bonhomme dominating at 3,181 feet. This richly fertile valley is thickly planted with bananas, nutmeg, coconuts, cocoa and other tropical plants. It is considered the bread basket of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
EAST COAST: Exposed to the Atlantic Ocean, the landscape is ruggedly artistic. There are several small villages including Sandy Bay, where descendants of the Carib settlers still reside.
DARK VIEW FALLS: A natural bamboo bridge spans this "tumbling river" luring you to a unique setting of two majestic falls and the bamboo cathedral.
TRINITY FALLS (Petit Walllibou Falls): Triple cascades of warm crystal clear water fall 40 feet into a basin of volcanic rock, then gush over an encircling rim to another pool ten feet below to form a Jacuzzi pool.
