Descrição

Venture with us into a breathtaking scenic drive along the Atlantic Ocean coast of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The coastal highway runs alongside the Atlantic Ocean passing through banana, coconut and arrowroot plantations. The road passes through the Byera Tunnel which was built in 1813 to open the Carib lands to settlement. In the 19th century, Georgetown had the Sugar Factory which closed in 1962, reopened, and closed again in 1984, and was the last operating sugar factory in the country. Explore the sugar town, Georgetown, where many British families lived, then on to Black Point Tunnel. Black Point Tunnel was built in 1815 to provide an access route for sugar exports. The Tunnel was a masterpiece of engineering skill for its time. Explore the Tunnel, walk on the black sand beach and enjoy our local refreshments (drinks and tropical fruits). Walking through the tunnel is quite an experience. There are stepping stones located in a bit of running water. Your feet will not get wet if you stay on the stepping stones. On the way back, we pass through the village of Calliaqua, the old capital of St. Vincent. We also see Fort Duvernette (built around 1800 to protect Calliaqua), Young Island and ‘Restaurant Row', with the grand finale being another breathtaking view of the harbour, town and mountains surrounding Kingstown.
