Windward Islands

The Windward Islands stretch from Martinique at the northern end down to Grenada in the south. This chain of islands runs around an arc of several hundred miles, and most are independent countries, each with separate cultures to discover. Relative to the Leeward Islands, this charter destination is very mountainous.  This archipelago of islands is another heavenly charter destination perfect for island hopping, and taking in the stunning sights of these remote Caribbean Islands.

WHEN TO GO: DECEMBER- APRIL

DAY ONE

Arrive St Vincent, and after welcoming drinks and a leisurely lunch under the awning, discuss the coming charter week and help plot your course over a couple of charts. 

Then set sail for Bequia, arriving in time for a quick swim before the sun dips below the sea and cocktails are served. 

DAY TWO 

Swim and breakfast while anchored off the pristine beach of Princess Margaret's Bay. The magic of Bequia will capture your spirit. Bequia has a long seafaring heritage, rich in the historical traditions of boat building and fishing. Visitors are fascinated with a trip to the Turtle Sanctuary and enjoy views of the scenic harbor as you explore the boutiques and markets along the waterfront. You'll find exquisite model boats, scrimshaw and unique island artwork in the tiny shops.  The island, encircled by gold sand beaches, offers a wide selection of aquatic activities. You can kayak, scuba dive and snorkel, or laze on one of Bequia's fabulous beaches.  The pristine Princess Margaret beach will lure you with its sparkling sands. At dinnertime, plan on a traditional local dinner at Fernando’s Hideaway, a must for every visit to Bequia!  

DAY THREE 

Then time to visit the world known celebrity island : Mustique. This famously, idyllic island is known for its magnificent beaches and snorkelling. Rent a 'Mule' to zoom around and laze under a coconut palm hut at Macaroni Bay. They keep beautiful horses here for a canter along the beach in the cool of early evening.  

DAY FOUR

After breakfast, sail to the Tobago Cays, the jewels of the Grenadines! Lunch in the lee of the island and drop anchor in the arms of the horseshoe reef surrounding the Jewels of the Grenadines. Tobago Cays is a group of uninhabited islets, which are now a national park. Experience an absolutely unforgettable afternoon of swimming and snorkelling in the warm, crystal-clear waters, and a dinghy expedition to Jamesby relaxing on the pristine white sand beach. Dine back on board your yacht on the fresh lobster you chose that afternoon.

Relaxing morning in the Tobago Cays : swim with the turtles off Baradel and snorkel over the amazing coral on the South side of Petit Bateau. Dinghy out to the shallow waters off the lagoon where you will be able to stand in luxurious turquoise waters.Then set sail to Mayreau, a tiny island with a population of just 300, with one small concrete road. You'll be welcomed with open arms by the locals. Quiet, gleaming beaches line both sides of the island. Walkers can challenge themselves with a steep hike up through the village and down to the opposite side of the island for a beach alternative. From the crest of the hill beside the Catholic Church, there is a beautiful overlook of the Tobago Cays, Canouan and Union Island.

You then have a choice of sundowners on the yacht followed by dinner under the stars.
