St. Vincent and The Grenadines (the country) is comprised of some 32 islands and hundreds of islets all stretching south (about 48 miles) to the country of Grenada.
The big island of St. Vincent (volcanic in origin) has a rugged mountainous terrain covered by lush forests with very little level ground.
Located in northern St. Vincent is the island's, as well as the country's highest peak, Mt. Soufrière at 1234 m (4,048 ft).
The Grenadines include the main islands of Bequia, Balliceau, Canouan, Mayreau, Mustique, Isle D'Quatre, Petit Saint Vincent, and Union Island, and over 600 rocky islets, all low-lying and ringed by coral reefs.
On St. Vincent (the island) a few very small rivers drain the mountain slopes.
