Botanic Gardens The St Vincent Botanic Gardens were established in 1765 and today cover 20 acres. Among the tropical plants is a breadfruit tree which was supposedly grown from a seed brought there by Captain Bligh of H.M.S. Bounty fame. Also on the grounds of the gardens is the St Vincent National Museum which has some pre-Columbian exhibits. © botanicalgarden.gov.vc Fort Charlotte Completed in 1806 Fort Charlotte was named after the wife of King George III, Queen Charlotte. Although the fort was built more to protect people from a land attack than a sea attack, at 600ft it still offers some great views of the coast and sea.

Although the bay is accessible by road or sea, the sea approach is far more adventurous. Here, a visitor can walk about getting a drink here and there or eat in the restaurant which still has some memorabilia from the movie on display. Photo Credit: www.discoversvg.com
