"0'-#&'/ Largest and first of the chain of Grenadines Islands, the name Bequia comes from the Carib word meaning “Island of the Clouds”. It came into the news first in 1675, when a slave ship bound for Barbados foundered off the island. The Caribs, at that time the sole occupants of Bequia, apparently killed the ship’s crew and took the slaves into the Carib equivalent of protective custody.
