Firefly Plantation Tour, Bequia

This is totally a Must-Do while on the island of Bequia!  It's a unique experience and one that even my reluctant husband thoroughly enjoyed!  

Our guide, Keith, walked us through all the different parts of the plantation including the herb and vegetable gardens, mango trees, banana tree grove, coconut trees, and all sorts of other tropical fruit trees that we had never heard of.  He gave us fresh samples of anything and everything that was in season.  We learned more about the plantation in general, how it operates and serves as a source for Firefly Mustique as well.  

I had never had fresh coconut before, but let me tell you, I just bought one at the grocery store and have been snacking on it here at home, bringing back some great memories, longing for Bequia...  

Firefly Plantation, Bequia

We spent a lovely afternoon at the Firefly Plantation Bequia.  First we enjoyed lunch in the restaurant.  The service was wonderful -- everyone was very friendly, jovial and helpful.  The food was delicious and highly recommended.  As it is hillside, there's a view of the extensive land that makes up the plantation, all the way to the beach.  

After lunch, we went on the Plantation Tour with Keith as our guide.  (See Plantation Tour post.)

As lunch guests, you are invited to use the pool for the afternoon, which is a little bonus.  

A morning or afternoon at Firefly Plantation (including the tour) is a "Must Do" while on the island.  Package it with a visit to the Turtle Sanctuary, and you have yourself a nice little day trip.  :-)      If you have time and desire, maybe you could work on your membership to the Firefly Martini Club as well!
