Yachting Land Adventure

Firefly Plantation & Tastings

A short ride from the tender pier is the fantastic Firefly Plantation tempting you to explore the grounds while visiting the beautiful island of Bequia. Here rustic charm meets island chic in this 20th century property which hosts a plantation, hotel, restaurant and sea salt producing shop.

Built on the foundations of an 18th century estate homestead, the Firefly Plantation is a gem in the countryside. The 30-acre property is a modern working plantation with many fruit and flowering trees. Take a walk through the gentle hillsides with the Head Gardener as he reveals the history of the gardens and the area. He will also reveal the many different fruits and tropical plants growing on site. You even have an opportunity to taste ripe fruits directly from the trees. The bountiful garden has citrus, plums, breadfruit and mango trees, among others.

At the Firefly Plantation, you will experience a Grenadine Sea Salt orientation and tasting that will have you thinking differently about Sea Salt. The natural harvesting of lower-sodium, low-chloride salts with higher mineral proportions and flavoured with local natural ingredients creates delicious products for seasoning gourmet cuisine or even for meats on the grill.

After the introduction to the Grenadine Sea Salts; you return to the Firefly Restaurant. Here a refreshing fruit drink, made fresh from the garden, will be served as you enjoy the hotel ambiance. Afterwards, it will be time to climb aboard your island-style vehicle for the scenic trip back to the tender pier. The salt-tasting shop is located on the property. You can make a stop at the shop while enjoying your drink.
