St Vincent & The Grenadines: Spices & Snorkelling
Consisting of over 30 islands and cays, only nine of which are inhabited, St Vincent and the Grenadines are justifiably named the 'Jewels of the Caribbean'. With most of the sprawling archipelago only accessible by boat, it is no wonder this is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing yacht charter in total seclusion.
Short sailing distances make it a breeze to visit rainforests or white sand beaches, buzzing ports or relaxed reggae shacks. An endless choice of private anchorages, opportunities to snorkel with marine life and exciting wreck dives all add to the allure of the Grenadines. Hike alongside verdant pathways to bathe under cascading waterfalls, where the scenery and wildlife are so breath-taking, a photograph will never deliver the raw beauty witnessed first hand.
With so many exquisite sailing areas and reef-lined islands to explore, the main item to bring on board when planning a superyacht charter itinerary in the Grenadines is time.
The islands all have their own quintessential exoticism and laid-back culture. Gorgeous Bequia, with secluded Princess Margaret Beach, a fabulous Music Fest in January, plus Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary is a must-see. Private Mustique is dotted with luxury villas and quiet beaches, romantic and secluded. In the South West, enjoy the low-key Canouan Island offering the height of relaxation and the coral reefs of Tobago Cays Marine Park with its outstanding underwater discoveries - recommended is a swim with curious sea rays.
This idyllic mecca for sailors and travellers alike never fails to deliver an unparalleled combination of fun, relaxation and beauty.
St Vincent's Sunshine Market is the ideal place to pick up local favourites such as Erica’s Pepper Sauce or the award-winning 'Sunset Very Strong Rum'
In idyllic Canouan, the Mangrove Restaurant serves mouth-watering fresh fish and their signature roti plate of traditional foods
At Saline Bay on Mayreau, visit legendary Robert Righteous for the best conch fritters in the Caribbean and Dennis Hideaway for sunset views
