St Vincent and the Grenadines: Discover the archipelago
The countless islands that make up the archipelago of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are one of the most striking Caribbean landmarks you will see from the deck of your luxury yacht charter.
Mooring off the white shores of these islands you can’t help thinking how little seems to have changed since time immemorial. Outdoorsy types love the forest-clad landscape dotted with volcanic tops, while fans of water sports flock here to snorkel the beautiful coral reef.
With its colonial buildings, Kingstown, the capital city, exudes the charm of an old town, where lovely streets are lined with restaurants enticing tourists with a seafish cuisine that is best washed down with the local delicious beer. The town is not wanting of more exclusive locations, but we recommend sticking with the locals to get a real taste of this charming site.
Leave Kingstown and head to the world’s oldest botanical garden. Measuring more than 8sq meters, it houses an incredible variety of tropical plants, flowers, and trees, including one breadfruit tree descending from a specimen brought to the island by Captain Bligh in 1765.
After sunset, musical entertainment can be heard coming from several bars in Kingstown. The nightlife gets more exciting on the weekend, when resorts and club organize live shows.
To experience the best St Vincent and the Grenadines have to offer, hop on your luxury yacht charter for some line-of-sight sailing along the coast. You will find jaw-dropping coves and unpopulated islands affording splendid isolation. The five secluded islets that from the Tobago Cays are wonderful dive and snorkeling sites. For a taste of the original Caribbean, sail to the island of Bequia, where fishermen build their boats following a centuries-old method.
Stopping in the Windward Islands during a cruise of the Caribbean on a luxury yacht charter is an unforgettable experience that you don’t want to miss!
