Grenada: has a great mix of old Caribbean atmosphere and modern facilities, you will be stopping in the new marina at Port Louis and the idyllic anchorages on the south coast.
If you like diving there are some incredible sights and it is also essential to have some time ashore to explore this wonderfully diverse island with its lush and mountainous landscape and some of the finest beaches in the world. We advise you to arrive a few days early to take in this exotic island before the sailing adventures begin.
The Grenadine Islands so offer many delights, from lush tropical rainforests, spectacular snorkelling, idyllic white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons, picturesque anchorages, a chance to try out the local culture and much more. If there is somewhere particular in mind that you would like to visit, suggestions are always welcome.
Carriacou: the largest island in the Grenadines will be your first stop, characterised by its hilly terrain sloping down into white sandy beaches. Known as the 'Land of the Reefs', you have the opportunity to don your snorkelling gear and take in stunning marine life. Then Union Island is next, with it's volcanic presence, it is often referred to as 'Tahiti of the West Indies'.
Tobago Cays Marine Park: We will be stopping in some stunning anchorages in the Tobago Cays Marine Park, a national park and wildlife reserve run by the St.Vincent and the Grenadines government. With some of the most extensive and well-developed coral reef complexes, you will be able to snorkel in waters teaming with some of the most colourful and captivating fish, including a chance to swim with the much loved hawksbill turtles.
Bequia: Onwards we go to Bequia (pronounced Bekway), a sailor's heaven, considered low key but fun. From the stunning, protected, natural harbour at Admiralty Bay to Port Elizabeth, the island's relaxed capital with its colourful wooden buildings, it's hard not to feel your pace of life slow down. Just around the corner is one of the many gorgeous beaches, Princess Margaret Bay with almond and cedar trees flanking the golden sand.
St Vincent: your final destination is St Vincent. It is the largest island in the Grenadines and composed of partially submerged volcanoes that make it very mountainous, rich in vegetation and one of the only places in the world that can boast having both black and white sand. There is a drive up the east coast to a mountain trail, with the opportunities to walk through jungle to a volcano, or more gentle trips to stunning waterfalls. St Vincent is most famous for acting as the main filming location for Pirates of the Caribbean.
