Where to stay in Kingstown

Bay Street--the closest street to the water--serves as the most popular place to stay in Kingstown largely thanks to its proximity to the beach. If you don't want to stay at one of the mid-range hotels or guesthouses there, go north to Leeward Highway, where you can choose from a handful of private vacation rentals. There, you'll also enjoy proximity to the botanical gardens.
