Thought to be reflective of the Caribbean 100 years ago, life on the islands in the Grenadines moves along at a slower pace than the rest of the #Caribbean. This is an area of very unique islands including Bequia, with a history of whaling, Mustique an island filled with villas for the rich and famous, and the Tobago Cays, an uninhabited group of cays surrounding a lovely lagoon, with terrific snorkeling and underwater life, including a sea turtle preserve. Fly into St. Lucia for a one way #yachtcharter on this itinerary through the lovely islands of the #Grenadines.
St Lucia – Union Island
Bequia Locally Built Boat
Your yacht awaits you at Marigot Bay, a small, sheltered anchorage known for excellent sunset rum punches. Enjoy an afternoon swim and dinner aboard.
Head south to Soufriere, a small town dominated by the towering twin Pitons, and perhaps take a walk in the rain forest or explore the sulphur springs. Enjoy lunch and a swim before leaving for St Vincent on a beautiful broad reach of about 30 nautical miles.
Enjoy lunch at Cumberland Bay, where a forest of coconut and banana trees flows down the valley to the beach. Enjoy the towering mountains and craggy peaks as you motor along the steep and wild terrain of St Vincent. Arrive at Young Island for a swim and cocktails before dinner and an overnight stay before leaving early for an exciting sail over to Bequia.
Once an active whaling station, Bequia is a location unique to the Caribbean with a fun, tropical marketplace and workshops displaying sought after hand-carved wooden sailing boats. Enjoy your first night at anchor in Admiralty Bay, and step a shore to visit the well know Frangipani Hotel for cocktails on the lawn overlooking the bay.
After breakfast pull up anchor for Mustique. An exclusive island for the rich and famous, visit Basil’s Bar, where a chance meeting of David Bowie and Mick Jagger has been known to happen. Rent a Moke or a horse and explore, or take in some diving to explore a few of the shipwrecks in the waters around the island.
Leave early for a sail to Canouan and relax in a peaceful anchorage off Charlestown Bay for a quiet lunch, before going ashore to explore.
Canoan Scuba Diving
Sail to the Tobago Cays after lunch; the inner lagoon is considered the best snorkeling and diving in the Grenadines. Enjoy a beautiful night under the stars.
Leave for Palm Island and wade along Casuarina Beach, a gorgeous expanse of golden sand and turquoise water. Enjoy a cocktail at the Sunset Bar before heading back to the yacht for dinner.
Leave after breakfast to motor over to Union Island for your flight home.
