Union Island is the southernmost island of the nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As such, it lies in the Lesser Antilles Island chain on the southern border of the Caribbean Ocean. Clifton is one of two principal towns on the island (Ashton being the other) and the roughly 3,000 inhabitants speak English predominantly, but also German and French.


Mount Taboi stands 1,000 feet above sea level and towers over the island’s settlements. The island has been in the possession of English and French colonial powers and cotton plantations dotted the island. Today, tourism is the main economic driver and yacht services in Clifton Harbour provide many jobs. There are also many small boutiques, supermarkets, bars and eating establishments and a dive operator. The official currency is the Eastern Caribbean dollar but the US dollar and Euro are also widely accepted. Be sure to visit the famous bar situated in the middle of Clifton harbour called Happy Island.
