Tourism is oriented toward yachting, with havens located on most of the Grenadines and also at Young Island, off the southern tip of St. Vincent. Posh resorts have been created on many of the smaller Grenadines, with villas and cottages built alongside small private beaches. In 2000 there were a total of 1,747 hotel rooms with 3,494 beds. The number of tourist arrivals totaled 94,030 that year and tourist expenditures totaled an estimated US $74 million.
According to 1999 UN estimates, the cost of staying in St. Vincent is $233 per day between December and April, and US $200 per day at other times of the year.
