The Real Caribbean| Newhavenadvocate.com

Leisure: "Somewhere out there exists the real Caribbean—a hidden land pleasantly lacking foreign-owned, all-inclusive resorts that gate guests in and keep the island out.
On this island, expats, sailors, guests and locals merge into a unique camaraderie shared over cold beers while being serenaded by the rhythms of reggae and steel drums. One falls asleep to the cry of the neighbor's pet goat and wakes up to the alarm of the resident rooster.
This secret land, although hard to get to, is well worth a visit. To meet the real Caribbean face to face, one must get to Bequia (pronounced bekway'), the crown jewel of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. "
