This is a favourite beach for visiting yachts and has a great convivial atmosphere. Gorgeous, deep coral sand beach. Excellent swimming. Beautiful trees for shade... There's even a cave to explore! Now with a spectacular beach restaurant. Best reached either by water, there is a pretty wooden jetty for a dinghy to the harbour, or via the Belmont Walkway Coastal Path from Port Elizabeth. Above and behind the beach a handful of special houses nestle amongst the trees or on the headland. brightly painted hand made boats rest in the shade of palms and sea grape.
Guest Reviews5 STARS Overall Rating 5 STARS Comfort 5 STARS Cleanliness 5 STARS Condition Amazing! My wife and I had the most amazing time at Shade of Blues Studio in Bequia. The house is located steps away and has an incredible view over the most beautiful beach on the island: Princess Margaret. It is also a short walk away from pretty much anything. The bedroom is very confortable, the balcony overlook is just stunning and is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast. If that wasn't enough, the gorgeous infinity pool will help you cool off after a long hot day so will the outdoor shower. We were lucky to be the only ones in the house during our stay which made it even more special. Communication was excellent, a cellphone was for us to use which was very helpful and we were welcomed by a very nice lady when we arrived who made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended! Mathieu B Visited May 2017
Stunning apartment. I was there for the first two weeks in sept 2012. Without exaggeration....this was the best vacation ever. Julian and Cass were wonderfully helpful, without being intrusive. Location was private, blissfully peaceful, yet close to everything. The beach, a mere two mins away. Friendly, helpful locals. Watching the yachts come and go from princess margaret beach in the comfort of your private balcony...Set on the best beach in bequia. Truly paradise. I'll be back.

"Been meaning to send you this since we got back! We had a fantastic time in Bequia, one of the great holidays. We did very little, there was very little to do, but we all - even the boys - relaxed and just went swimming and snorkeling. Were supposed to go diving but Hurricane Isaac intervened. Only bad weather for three days out of the fourteen, so that was v good going, we thought. The villa was v good, though not for young families because two of the three bedrooms were in a separate building from the main house.
The villa was right above the beach, the best beach on the island, and we often had it to ourselves. When it got busy, there were perhaps ten other people on the beach. Sea was warm and heavenly...Many thanks for your recommendation"

We absolutely loved our stay at Shades of Blues. The view over beautiful princess margarets bay was amazing. The house was finished to a very high spec with contemporary design. All very well thought out. Lovely pool, terrace and lighting. Beds very comfortable and we appreciated the "square topped" mosquito nets, stopping the net draping onto the bed. Jacks bar is a fantastic local. All in all couldnt be better.
Ted and Family
Our 3 week stay here was ostensibly to celebrate our Silver Wedding. We followed the suggestions of other visitors to Bequia and didn't hire a car, as we would usually, but used the services of Julian, the husband of the property's housekeeper Cas. Cas & Julian were absolutely fantastic and even if we weren't going anywhere, we saw them both every day. One important thing that is missed off the info, are the number of steps, from the "lane" to the apartment. I had just had surgery to my foot and had only been off crutches for 3 days before we came away. There are 78 steps from the apartment to the lane and a further 78 to the beach, if you go down via Jack's Bar. There are no steps if you go along the lane a little and through the trees to the beach. A good way to keep fit and there are convenient placse to stop on the way up!!! A bit of a hike with a case of wine or crate of beer, though we did manage!! Ask Julian about getting the beer from the beer factory and getting wine from the Welshman, Richard. The Friendship Rose trips are great, we did one to Tobago Cays and one to Mustique. We also took the Fast Ferry - Jaden Sun- to Union Island, calling at Canouan & Mayreau on the way. The outside showers are simply wonderful. The terrace is a great place to watch the bay from and each morning and evening we counted the vessels in and out. Wi-fi works best on the terrace. Princess Margaret's Beach really is the best one on the island. We were just at the start of the season, so some places weren't up and running. Fernando's Hideaway was great, but booking is a must. Can't believe it's taken me this long to write the review! Would certainly go back again. Bequia is no good if you want "everything on a plate". It is a small island, so the produce you can buy is dictated by what is shipped in!!

Blue Shades is outstanding.
I have never worked with a more professional and efficient staff in any situation.
Thanks again for all your help.
