Bequia, in the ancient Arawak, means "island of the clouds". As part of the Granadilles, the name of the island was also "Becouya". The unofficial anthem of Bequia is "Only in Bequia" created by island native Raphael "Socony" Holder.

Bequia Island is a popular destination among cruising yachts and tourists. The annual Easter Regatta is among the busiest times of the year. A couple of scuba diving stores organize dive trips to 28 identified sites around Bequia. Several shallow caves and wrecks are accessible to advanced divers. 

Bequia Island is one of the few spots in the world where the International Whaling Commission still allows limited whaling. Natives are allowed to catch up to 4 humpback whales annually using just traditional hunting methods and hand-thrown harpoons in open sailboats. However, the limit is rarely met, and some years there is no catch. There is a whaling museum on Bequia chronicling local history. A pleasant feature of Port Elizabeth waterfront is Whale Boner Bar & Restaurant. The bar has an entrance on the beach that consists of an arch of 2 whale ribs. Whale vertebrae is mounted on the bar seats and a whale rib runs the length of the restaurant.

Regularly scheduled ferries run from Saint Vincent, which is the main island. 3 ferries operate between the local port of Port Elizabeth and the capital city Kingstown. The other Grenadines islands can be reached by antique original SS Friendship Rose, Bequia-built and based in Port Elizabeth, which is the last operational schooner in Caribbean. The Friendship Rose is also used by the Bequia football teams in order to sail for matches to the other islands. The ferry offers daytime and overnight charters.
