The Bequia Tourism Association (BTA) was formed in December 1999 by a group of individuals from the Bequia business community, with the dual aims of protecting and enhancing the island's resources for both visitors and the community, and of attracting more visitors to the island through its own promotional and marketing initiatives. Its membership has now become more broadly based, encompassing not only business people but also representatives of community groups, Bequia schools, private residents, and Bequia lovers from around the world. 

The BTA is a non-profit organization, supported by annual membership fees, fund-raising activities and donations to the "Friends of Bequia" Club. A subvention from the government covers the running costs of the Tourism Office and its staff, while special projects are accomplished with volunteer labour and skills drawn from the membership.

Objectives of the Bequia Tourism Association 

             BTA Office in Port Elizabeth
 The Association's air-conditioned Tourism Office opens seven days a week, and is an excellent source of advice and information to visitors and residents alike. 

 Complimentary publications such as Bequia This Week,
Ins & Outs of St. Vincent & the Grenadines
and Caribbean Compass can be picked up by visitors to the office, and stamps, postcards, and phone cards are all available for sale.

 The BTA works hard within the community as well in close co-operation with relevant government agencies, to continually initiate improvements in such areas as garbage collection, security, harbour and yachting issues, airport facilities, and beautification of the island. It is also dedicated to providing information about Bequia both on and off the island. 

This official Bequia Tourism Association website is intended to provide broad-based information about the island, and to offer a platform through which members of the BTA can give brief details of their own business activities here in Bequia. General enquiries are also welcome through our Contact Us email. 

  We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and look forward to welcoming you to our very special island.
