We've taken several day-trips over the years . . . visiting just a few of the 32 Grenadine islands.
Four of the Cays - Petit Bateau, Petit Rameau, Jamesby and Baradal and enclosed within the inner, aptly named Horseshoe Reef, while the fifth - Petit Tabac, made famous by the movie ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, lies just to the east of the main group. Surrounding the islands is an outer reef, named World’s End Reef.
Mustique is a small private island, located South East of Bequia & St Vincent, in the north of the Grenadines. The 1,400 acre island of Mustique is owned by the Mustique Company.
Leaving Bequia at 8am, Mustique is only a 2 hour sail. Time for snorkelling, touring the island, discovering Macaroni Beach, and hanging at Basil's Bar.
Then, back on the boat for lunch before sailing back, arriving back in Bequia around 5pm.
Moonhole, located on the western tip of the island, is a privately-owned complex of stone dwellings built in the 1950's by American Tom Johnston. It's not open to the public (although we were lucky this year to get permission to walk the grounds) but can be viewed from the sea.
