St. Vincent is one of the 33 islands and small cays forming the Grenadines. The island is famed for its natural beauty. St. Vincent boasts a rugged coastline, lush rainforest, stunning waterfalls, a soaring volcano, and volcanic black-sand beaches. What travelers will not find are the glittering luxury resorts, duty-free shopping zones, and thronged beaches that characterize so many other islands in the Caribbean. St. Vincent is also one of the most cultivated islands in the region, thanks to the rich soil and abundant rainfall of its Mesopotamia Valley. The island's fertility and strategic location made it a highly sought prize during the 18th century. France and Great Britain both vied for control of St. Vincent; the island changed hands three times. As a result, traces of both are seen on the island. Today's Vincentians are a passionate people who possess great pride in their homeland.
