8 Must See Islands in the Grenadines
8 Islands in the Grenadines you will want to visit on your luxury yacht charter. We’ve included activities and water-sports.
An eight-mile sail from St. Vincent, Bequia is an old favorite in the yachting community and has something for everyone. Head for Admiralty Bay where you can spend time ashore exploring the shops, bars, and many good restaurants along the waterfront, or hike inland to other areas of interest.
Sail downwind to the hilly island of Canouan and pick up a mooring off Tamarind Bay at the northern end of the island. Protected by an extensive reef, many consider the beaches on the eastern side of the island to be the best in The Grenadines.
The largest island of The Grenadines, Carriacou is a perfect stop off on a passage to Grenada, just eight miles from Union Island. It has the widest choice in the lower Grenadines for those wishing to eat out, and the inhabitants are amongst the friendliest in the Caribbean.
The southernmost point of the Windward Islands, Grenada is covered with verdant green mountains, waterfalls, golden beaches and the fragrant spice trees which lend the island its epithet – the ‘Spice Island’ of the Caribbean.
Neighboring Mustique is one of the most exclusive islands in the world, frequented by royalty and rock stars alike and surrounded by coral, sandy beaches, and coves. Mingle with the island dwellers at the atmospheric Basil’s Bar, the hot spot of the island at Britannia Bay, Mustique’s main harbor. Exclusive, and private Villas are available for rental.
Petit St. Vincent and Petit Martinique
Just a short sail southeast from Union brings you to this secluded island hideaway. The beaches are lovely, providing many charming walks on Petit St. Vincent, and the snorkeling opportunities on the surrounding reef are also excellent. Petit Martinique is small and enchanting and still virtually untouched by tourism.
A national marine park not to be missed, the Tobago Cays are at the top of many a cruising itinerary. Snorkeling and diving inside Horseshoe Reef, which protects this scattering of islands, is spectacular.
Clifton, on the dramatically mountainous Union Island, is a bustling port and the yachting center of the southern Grenadines. Visit the collection of sharks in the pool at the Anchorage hotel, or occupy yourself with the many local supermarkets and boutiques.
