About Us

Union Island is volcanic in origin, with steep mountain ridges. It is 5 km long by 2.5 km wide. One recognizes the island from afar when approaching from the south, thanks to the point of the Pinnacle (228M) which is typical of Union.

Getting Here

The Grenadines are made up of some 32 islands and cays stretching south from St. Vincent, the "mainland". A few of the islands are inhabited, but many are simply bird sanctuaries and environmental sites. Union Island is the southernmost island of the Grenadines.
