Cottages and suites are found either on the beach level, some with direct access to the beach, or up the hillside with stunning views out to sea and towards St Vincent. All accommodation has a private terrace and semi-outdoor shower, some with a private plunge pool and separate sitting area, while the largest suite accommodates families in two bedrooms.
Dining is certainly a celebrated aspect of Young Island, with an emphasis on local cuisine, a daily changing menu and a beautiful restaurant location where guests are seated under individual thatched gazebos. Weekly entertainments includes cocktail parties and barbecues with a local steel band. The resort is known for the freshly baked breads that are served with every meal, with flavours including banana, cinnamon and raisin. The infamous Coconut Bar is just a short swim from the beach at high tide, allowing guests to sip the freshest cocktails on a floating platform - certainly a unique backdrop for that afternoon Mojito! Of course there is also the Captain Bligh Lounge & Bar back on the island too.
There are varied facilities on offer including a swimming pool which sits amongst tropical foliage, a small spa, a tennis court found towards the back of the island, and complimentary water sports on the beach.
Access to Young Island is via St Vincent, and with a direct flight operating twice a week, getting to this private island retreat couldn't be more straightforward. A complimentary 24 hour ferry service to St Vincent operates on demand, taking just a few minutes and allowing guests to visit a range of tourist attractions including botanic gardens and waterfalls.

Young Island is a resort that gives you a real 'Robinson Crusoe' feeling while still being only 200 yards from the main island of St Vincent, meaning you get the best of both worlds. The island has a rustic and laid-back feel, and we found the staff to be super friendly and the food to be excellent. After the night in our Luxury Room with Plunge Pool, we spent the morning exploring the rest of the lush and natural island, climbing to the very top for breathtaking views towards Bequia and Mustique. We then cooled off by snorkelling in the mini lagoon just off the beach.
