The diminutive Young Island is located just off the south coast of St. Vincent. It covers a total of 35 acres which is occupied by a private resort and its tropical gardens which are designated a national wildlife preserve.

A network of hiking trails offers resort guests a chance to enjoy a wide variety of flora and fauna, including iguanas and the rare agouti.

A little to the south of Young Island is a large rocky pinnacle upon which are the ruins of Fort Duvernette, a military outpost established by the British in the 1790s. A series of steep steps leads to the summit.

When you are done exploring, don't forget to schedule in some relaxation time.
