A 2,100-acre mountainous island fringed by superb beaches, Union Is. is the stopping-off point for yachtsmen and visitors heading to some of the smaller Grenadines. The island features several beachfront inns, all with a simple, relaxed lifestyle. The 1000 foot Mount Tobaoi on Union Island has the country's highest peak outside of St. Vincent. From a distance, Union Island looks like a part of French Polynesia with it's rugged peak protruding above the rest of the island. Superb anchorages in several bays protected by surrounding reefs circle the island. Small Palm Island and Petit St. Vincent, each just large enough to contain one resort are satellites of Union. Palm Island is just one mile from Union and Petit St. Vincent is three miles south. All three islands have white sand beaches.
