Sailing through the Grenadines you will experience the Caribbean from its most original side. The mountains of St. Lucia tower 20 sea miles to the south. You will find dreamlike moorings at Soufriere at the foot of the two volcanic cones Les Pitons or in the famous Marigot Bay.
The island of Bequia (pronounced Bekvi) is a meeting place for skippers. Isolated enough to escape tourism, yet still highly lively.
Further southward one dreamlike mooring for your charter yacht follows another. Small isles such as the Tobago Cays offer an absolutely pristine environment. This is where the dream of a deserted island comes true.
Relax and easygoing is the motto of the inhabitants of Carriacous, an island with 100 rum shops but only one petrol station.
Whoever has enough time sails on to Grenada. Green mountains, crystal clear waterfalls and golden beaches. The many spice trees have given the island the byname of Spice Island.
