Bird Watching at Plumrose

In Bequia's dry season, wildlife, especially birds, has little access to fresh water. To help make lives easier for them, we at Plumrose, reuse old copper bowls, keep them filled with water and even add some water lilies and fish in it for the birds to enjoy.

The Hike to Ma Peggy’s Rock

There are two ways of tackling the climb to this huge rock strategically located on Mount Peggy that offers a spectacular panoramic view of Bequia. The first route is a strenuous hike that starts from the village of Lower Bay, while the other embarks from the Paget Farm fishing village, allowing more room for a gradual ascent.
