Thirty islands and specks of sand make up the gloriously untouched Grenadines. We’ll call on one of these Islands, for a blissful, laid-back beach day. We’re sure, you’ll never be disappointed.
St. George’s, Grenada
The aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla baking in the sun – these are the tropical flavours of Grenada. From the horseshoe shaped Carenage at St. George’s, follow the Sendall Tunnel (hand-built in 1895) to the Esplanade and old Ft. George for a spectacular view of Grenada.

The natural harbour of Port Elizabeth at Bequia is one of the prettiest in the world. The exquisite waterfront beckons you for a gentle stroll along the harbour.
Fort de France, Martinique
Martinique is the classic French Caribbean island. Wild and mysterious, yet urbane and sophisticated, it is France with a tropical twist, with something for almost everyone. You won’t be able to resist the charms of spicy Creole cooking and tempting boutiques in Fort de France.
Marigot Bay – Soufriere (St. Lucia)
Marigot Bay, one of the prettiest anchorages in the St. Lucia, is surrounded by lush hills and ringed by drooping coconut palms and banana plantations.

Dominica is a dream-like island, full of surprises. Glide through a steamy orchid-festooned rainforest in a fascinating boat ride or hike to breathtaking Trafalgar Falls and a bubbling lake.
Falmouth Harbour, Antigua
The dockyards, marinas, old inns, venerable pubs and convivial crowds of sun-tanned yacht crews- this is the epicentre of the Caribbean yachting world. Today, every faded pink brick and weather-worn bollard of Nelson’s Dockyard evokes the presence of the greatest naval commander in history.
Bassterre, St. Kitts – South Friar’s Bay
