As a leading voice in socially responsible travel and lifestyle, World Footprints explores diverse topics such as modern slavery, film, music, politics, sustainability and travel intelligence as we travel the planet together.

Upcoming Broadcasts

World Footprints will give you a taste of paradise as we journey to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG)—a multi-island country of 32 enchanting islands and cays. Of those islands only nine are inhabited and each offers unique accommodations. We'll introduce you to three of our favorite properties today. Our first stop is Buccament Bay Resort on the island of St. Vincent. Buccament Bay is a brand new 5 star all-inclusive resort surrounded by lush green mountains, rainforests and a white sand beach. Resort Manager Christine Nelles will offer a virtual tour of the array of experiences that families, couples and business travelers can enjoy. From the Liverpool Football Club Soccer School and Pat Cash Tennis Academy to the Harlequin Performing Arts Academy, and world-class cuisine the resort offers something for everyone. Our next stop is the island of Bequia, the largest of the Grenadine Islands. Here we'll introduce Bengt Mortsted, owner of the newly built Bequia Beach Hotel. This boutique hotel is inspired by stylish Mustique villas and situated on the beautiful Friendship Beach. Lush tropical gardens embrace the grounds and provide a luxurious and relaxing experience. The private island of Palm Island, in the Southern Grenadines, and the Palm Island Resort is our final stop on this tour. The resort is an eco-friendly, all-inclusive, 135-acre resort that is intimate with only 41 guestrooms and two villas. General Manager Chris Ghita will entice us with a tour of the amenities, activities, dining options and accommodations.
