Caribbean beaches that aren’t crowded with hotels and condos are rare. Fortunately, the little-known island chain of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is—at least for now—laid back, conservation minded, and lightly developed.

Island: St. Vincent

Outside bustling Kingstown, this volcanic island is a scenic paradise of lush rainforests, deep bays, and dramatic waterfalls—all reasons St. Vincent was the film location for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Petit Byahaut Eco-Resort

No roads, no phones, no TVs, no walls: What does solar-powered Petit Byahaut have? A gorgeous black-sand beach, friendly folks, ­outdoorsy tropical atmosphere, and gourmet meals.



Swiss Family Robinson: This getaway for nature lovers has just five accommodations: roofed, open-air wooden platforms with screened bedrooms (no bugs, tree-frog lullabies) tucked into forest gardens.

Responsible tourism: Low-impact operations, solar electricity and hot water, local staff, rainwater storage, artesian well.
