The first episode of the famous Pirates of the Caribbean was shot in the Caribbean paradise of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Most of the scenes were shot on the island of St. Vincent, but some of the shots were filmed on a small island in the Grenadines. It is now possible to follow in the footsteps of the more adventurous pirates. Are you ready to sail the blue waters and enjoy the white sandy beaches of this unique place?
Best places to visit in the Grenadines?
Turquoise waters, giant palm trees and wide, unspoiled beaches, the Caribbean tour takes us to the idyllic setting of the Grenadines, home to many little treasures. Before we introduce you to these heavenly and epic locations, let us remind you that these five films were not shot exclusively on these islands. In addition to the studio scenes, some were shot on beaches in Los Angeles, New Zealand, Australia, London and Singapore. Now it’s time to put on your best pirate costume (or swimming costume) and follow in Jack Sparrow’s footsteps!
What makes the Grenadines so special?
The Grenadines are part of two countries, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada, located in the Southern Caribbean. The Grenadines are a group of heavenly islands off the Caribbean and Atlantic coasts. They are famous for their crystal clear waters, black sand beaches, lush volcanic islands and rich natural heritage, including impressive marine and terrestrial wildlife. From Tobago Cays to Jamesby Island, Port Elizabeth to St Vincent, Mosquito Island to Bequia, there is much to see and do in this beautiful Caribbean resort.
What do the typical sightseeing tours look like?
On one island, Captain Barbossa left Jack Sparrow behind twice and Jack Sparrow’s fate was tragic. Don’t worry, the Tobago Cays are not abandoned, quite the opposite. But don’t expect to find dozens of activities.
The main activities in the island are sunbathing and relaxing. No, that’s not a typo! You are in Dominica, not the Dominican Republic. The region is less touristy and thus perfect for a relaxing holiday. There’s something for everyone there, from hiking the small Emerald Pools waterfall to snorkelling.
