This tiny dot in the Caribbean Sea lies just a coconut's throw (or 200 yards!)
from the main island of St. Vincent. Only 35-acres in size, it is a veritable profusion of tropical palms,
shrubs and fruits and is where to go when you're in a Robinson Crusoe kind of mood.
The 29-cottages on Young Island are set
either near the beach or on the hillside (some quite high up with breathtaking views) and whilst not attaining
international standards of luxury, they're extremely attractive in an 'island-style' kind of way, featuring
open-air garden showers and private patios. Some beachside luxury suites even have their own private plunge
pools. The daytime focal point is usually the small stretch of beach or exotic lagoon-style swimming pool,
with many guests happy to swim out to the Coconut Bar for a thirst-quenching cocktail (served in fresh coconuts,
of course!). Dining is usually an elegantly informal affair beneath thatched pavilions close to the beach, each
meal accompanied by the resort's famous bread - six different types including white, coconut, banana, raisin,
cinnamon and wheat. Windsurfing, sailboats, snorkelling all feature here, with the resort's two yachts available
for charters to nearby islands.
Access: Reached by a 10-minute taxi ride and 5-minute boat ride from St. Vincent airport: 29 superior/deluxe
