Known as the Cinderella of the Grenadines, Baliceaux is often overlooked in favor of its celebrity siblings, Mustique and Bequia. All three islands sit just south of Kingstown, population 25,000, the capital of the nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Now perfectly poised to follow in international tourism destinations Mustique and Bequia’s footsteps, it is time for 320-acre Baliceaux to step into the spotlight.
Discovered by Spanish sailors in the 15th century, Baliceaux has escaped the commercialization and development that many of its Windward Island neighbors have succumbed to, making this 320-acre paradise one of the last truly unspoiled gems in the Lesser Antilles. Just ten minutes by boat west of Bequia and north of Mustique, this magnificent isle is an undeveloped gem just waiting for the right person to let it shine.
The island offers outstanding hiking through its lush terrain and rugged trails. Azure waters frame sheltered bays and coves. Crumbling cliffs bookend gentle meadows. Exquisite golden beaches arc round bays on Baliceaux’s eastern and western shores, while the island’s high point, Gun Hill, was a lookout for soldiers during the Carib Wars of 1772-1797. There are still artifacts to be found from these days, and possibly other treasures’ the pirate Blackbeard sailed his ship Queen Anne’s Revenge round Baliceaux’s waters in the early 1700s. For a modern take on glitz, Mustique’s dazzling nightlife, shopping, and golf are a swift boat ride away. With the launch of Argyle International Airport in Saint Vincent set to be finalized in the next few years, the Caribbean’s already $49 billion dollar tourism, is set for further economic growth. Baliceaux Island is prepared to be someone’s dream come true.
