Concierge.com's insider take:
Despite its wee size, Bequia has an abundance of varied beaches. At Lower Bay, a crescent of pure white sand gives way to glass-clear water. Bring along your snorkeling gear. Princess Margaret Beach, also known as Tony Gibbons Beach, offers similarly pristine sands and calm waters. For beaches with a rougher edge, head to Friendship Bay, where the waves are stronger and work well for windsurfers. More remote are Industry, Hope, and Spring beaches on the island's east side. All three are tucked far (in Bequia terms) from the masses, and Hope requires a somewhat strenuous hike. On most of the beaches, you can find some sort of restaurant or food shack.
