Bequia is the picturesque Caribbean island many dream of, only 9 miles west of Mustique and just 7 sq. miles in size with warm, friendly people and a simple unhurried lifestyle. Take in the natural beauty of the beautiful beaches on one of the few Caribbean Islands to have retained its original character and old world charm. With a warm climate and average temperature range of 75 to 85 degrees (24 to 29c) throughout the year, Bequia is wonderful January to December, and it’s even far enough South to avoid hurricanes!
Boasting masses of original charm, Firefly Plantation’s style is unique and genuine in both decor and service with comfortable rooms and a private cottage, an onsite swimming pool, restaurant, cocktail bar and lush tropical gardens.
If you can take yourself away from the swimming pool and private beach, enjoy a leisurely guided walk through the traditional working Plantation with head groundsman Keith, who will give you a brief history of the plantation and the 200 year old sugar mill. Meet the animals, sample many of the fruits and vegetables in season and learn about coconuts, bananas and uses of the various herbs and flowers you will see growing around the property. Discover 30 acres of lush hillsides and wild orchards producing grapefruit, bananas, breadfruit, guava, coconuts, mangoes and a variety of wonderful and exotic crops.
A tennis court is located only 5 minutes from the property and snorkelling and diving can be arranged through the local dive shop.
Each room has been lovingly designed as a ‘Caribbean Fantasy’ and includes the extra touches that you naturally expect with impressive views of the plantation and Caribbean sea beyond from a private balcony or terrace.
