The colourful history of this region dates back to the 17th century when this amazing archipelago that includes St Vincent, Bequia, Mustique and Tobago Cays, was named The Grenadines by swashbuckling pirates. Modern-day sailors cruising to the Grenadines aboard a luxury charter yacht have 32 captivating islands and cays to explore.

Bequia, pronounced ‘bekway’ and located  only nine miles south of St Vincent, covers just seven square miles. It is considered by many to be the best destination in the Windward Islands. Admiralty Bay is one of the finest natural harbours in the Caribbean. The capital, Port Elizabeth, is a charming town comprising many colourful wooden buildings. Glorious golden sand beaches and beach bar hideaways are a feature. The island is famous for the small and colourful model boats made by the islanders, a tradition that harks back to the whaling days.

Mustique is a Windward Islands hideaway for the rich and famous. In 1958 the 1400 acre island was purchased by England’s Lord Glenconner, who planned to make it an exclusive holiday destination. Today Mustique is accessible to visitors. There are some beautiful beaches on the island and excellent diving on coral reefs to be experienced. The island is so small you can take in the sights by foot or on horseback.

The Tobago Cays are a spectacular cluster of uninhabited islets offering excellent diving on easily accessible tropical reefs. The inner reefs offer warm, shallow water with some of the best snorkelling in the world. The range of the marine life you will see here will astound as you swim among the colourful reefs and sponges, tropical fish and sea turtles. This place truly is a highlight of the Grenadines, if not the whole Caribbean. An idyllic yachting anchorage, a dream for divers and snorkelers, a paradise for beachcombers, and a film location for Pirates of the Caribbean, the Tobago Cays Marine Park is one of the world's most awe-inspiring island destinations. As the sun sets, we recommend enjoying fresh lobster and champagne under the moon light!

Canouan Island, one of the Caribbean's newest luxury destinations, is just five square miles in size and was formerly a community of sailors and fishermen. Your luxury charter yacht can drop anchor off Tamarind Beach Hotel to allow you to enjoy all the beauty that Charlestown Bay offers. Charter guests have the opportunity to take in a round of golf at The Canouan Resort's Jim Fazio designed 18 hole championship golf course, whilst others might enjoy a hike around the island or spa experience at Canouan Resort's Spa. Alternatively, Canouan is a great location for water based activities as well!

The southern most island in the Grenadines Petit St Vincent, known locally as PSV, is a lush 115-acre tropical island. With just one hotel home to 22 spacious one bedroom cottages and two bedroom beach villas, this is one of the Caribbean's most private of islands, yet still open to the public. The hillside restaurant offers lovely views over the turquoise sea and depending on where exactly your Captain anchors you may be able to look down on your charter yacht while enjoying a sunset cocktail at the bar.
