A touch of culture in Kingstown

The capital of St Vincent and the Grenadines boasts tight-knit cobbled streets, beautiful churches with stained-glass windows glittering in the sun and soft colored colonial style buildings. Wander around the commercial centre swing by a local market to see brightly painted exotic fruits and hear the lyrical barter of the traders before escaping to the bliss of the botanical gardens. The St Vincent Botanical Gardens is the oldest in the West Indies and the glaze of tropical flora permeating the serene air will calm your soul in seconds. Float on air back to the pristine delights of your yacht and dine on quintessential Caribbean flavors with a local inspired menu tailored to perfection from your private chef.

Drive along Leeward Highway

Spend an indulgent morning diving into bright blue waters and brunching before heading for an afternoon adventure. With the sea breeze misting your skin take a short trip to the shore to enjoy the forty kilometer road stretching across the carved volcanic cliffs of Kingstown to Richmond Beach. The road will take you through a landscape of sweeping coconut plantations, silvery sand beaches, enigmatic faces etched into rock. The tiny fishing village of Carib Rock is worth stopping by and on Richmond Beach you can admire the sizzling air over the peak of the active La Soufrière volcano.

Lunch at Basils Bar in Mustique

Although you might simply want to kick back and enjoy a mouth-watering lunch aboard your yacht, we recommend stepping ashore once more for a delightful experience. Lunch at the famous Basils Bar in Mustique is an institution when exploring the delights of St Vincent and the Grenadines. This savvy celebrity hangout serves the freshest Caribbean seafood and the vibe is always lively. Grab a table on the picturesque deck that juts out over the warm salty sea and sip a cocktail or two as you soak up the ambience.

Stroll around sleepy Bequia

Beautiful Bequia is the second largest island in the collection and its tumbling bougainvillea, lush landscapes and Robinson Crusoe beaches combine to create a romantic setting. Take a couple of hours to mender the trails that lead along the waterfront, duck in and out of the pretty boutiques and  admire the breathtaking views of white sails against turquoise waters on the shores of Princess Margaret Beach.

Snorkel the Cays

The southern Grenadines is home to the unique cluster of cays known as the Tobago Cays. These tiny uninhibited islands boast crystal clear waters, blooming coral gardens and drifting sea turtles gliding through the blue. Snorkel the cays to explore a world of underwater delights as the waters teem with stingrays, colorful shoals of flittering fish and large barracuda. Take a refresher diving course or simply don a mask and fins, but do make sure to check out the underwater gems.

Dine on Young Island

The privately owned Young Island offers a dreamy setting for a decadent dinner in paradise. Accessible only by the sea, you can rock up on this celebrity infused island and dine under thatched gazebos dotted along the sands. Dish after dish of regional cuisine is sure to leave you satiated and the house breads are best torn apart to reveal evocative flavors such as banana and cinnamon. Watch a delicate sunset surrounded by romance in gourmet style.
