The Wonders of the Grenadines

The Grenadines leaves so much to wonder, which leads to questions like how many islands, beaches and adventures can you really discover? Between the mainland of Grenada and Saint Vincent lies a chain of exotic islands separated by lustrous turquoise waters. Their beautiful un-spoilt white sandy beaches adorned with coconut trees allow you to enjoy the luxury of privacy on uninhabited islands.

The Grenadines, home to Tobago Cays Marine Park, which is a premier marine protected area home to turtles, iguanas and coral reefs consists of 5 islands: Jamesby Island, Petit Bateau, Petit Tabac, Petit Rameau and Baradal Island. They are uninhabited islands open for exploration, where you can challenge your friends to a game of who can spot iguanas in their camouflage or  perhaps be chased by them. Then there are the private Islands such as: Mustique, Petite Saint Vincent, Palm Island, and Calivigny Island where you can indulge in a romantic getaway and disconnect from the rest of the world.

Baradal is the most fascinating island you can uncover. It’s located on the boundary of the Caribbean Sea and  Atlantic Ocean, as you walk towards the Atlantic side you can feel a slight difference in the temperature. From the top of the island you can get a 360 degree view of the other islands including Canouan. On Petit Bateau there is Chef by the name of ‘MandyMan’ who serves up local and organic delectable meals with a range of choices. We highly recommend trying his Lambi dish.

Scenes from the motion picture Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl were  shot on Petit Tabac also known as ‘Rumrunners Island’. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau is definitely the place for you. Boasting peaceful bay with white sand and warm waters, where you can purchase souvenirs, mingle with locals or hang by the bar and have some cold Hairouns (signature beer of Saint Vincent). On Union Island you can go kitesurfing or explore the streets of Clifton and end the evening with a rum punch at Happy Island Bar.

 

The Grenadines is truly a magical place and the epitome of idyllic island life where paradise is only a short boat ride away.
