Port Elizabeth

Bequia was a beautiful stop. We anchored just off Port Elizabeth in front Princess Margaret Beach. This stop was extra special for us because we finally got to reunite with our great friends, Miki & Francesco!

We met them almost 2 years before, in Simon’s Town, South Africa, while both our boats were on the hard. These two have been sailing for about 8years now – they started in the Pacific then Asia, South Africa and now the Caribbean.

The beaches here are beautiful and there are small caves to explore in the bays. There is currently a big drive to eradicate the alien Lionfish. They were accidentally introduced to St Vincent & The Grenadines waters and are seriously threatening the indigenous marine life with their voracious appetites and rapid reproduction. We didn’t manage to spear any during our stay but we did enjoy a delicious Lionfish pizza!
