Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are some of the lesser known islands lying on a stretch starting from the south of the Caribbean Arc to the South American sub-continent. These little pearls are strung together on a chain known as « the Windward Islands ».
Their populations are of Amerindian origin but became mixed because of European colonisation and the influx of African slaves. Today, they have mastered an easy going lifestyle.
Thanks to their authenticity and invigorating beauty, these fragments of the former British Empire are very remote from the standard image we often carry of the Caribbean.
