7 Day Itinerary – Grenada

Day 1: St Georges - Carriacou

A short 11 miles NE and gentle sail away, we will find the pearly white sandy beaches of Carriacou. We can spend the day snorkelling, scuba diving or just playing in the beautiful aquamarine water, almost guaranteed to have this classic desert island to ourselves. The surrounding reefs offer superb diving, and it is easy to marvel at colourful corals and tropical fish while snorkelling from the south-western tip of the island along a gentle current.

Dinner can be enjoyed on board but it is worth the effort to explore the little island of Carriacou…perhaps enjoy the Lazy Turtle Beach Bar's homemade ice cream or visit Patty’s deli. It is a very interesting site for snorkelers and scuba divers, while swimmers can enjoy a relaxing time on the beach. Anchor at Tyrrel Bay amongst the local fishing boats and enjoy a stroll. Drink ashore at one of the many rum shops.


Day 2: Sandy Island – Happy Island

Sail around to Sandy Island for breakfast. This is a flawless piece of land with no more than half a dozen palm trees.

After breakfast and snorkelling, sail over to Union Island and complete check in formalities for St. Vincent at Clifton Harbour. Unsophisticated, relaxed and friendly, Union is still off the beaten track. A charming destination and a great base to pick up a mooring and explore the natural beauty of this region, Union is a paradise for yachting enthusiasts, scuba divers, hikers and sun worshipers.

Sail a short distance and drop anchor at delightful Happy Island for the night.


Day 3: Mayreau

Sail to the smallest inhabited island in the Grenadines. A white sand beach inside a well-protected harbour makes it a divine place for your yacht to anchor and you to just simply relax. Drop anchor at Salt Whistle Bay on Mayreau.


Day 4: Tobago Cays

Then set sail to the Tobago Cays, one of the most breath-taking anchorages in the world. This paradise with turquoise and crystal greenish waters is the perfect spot for snorkelling and swimming.

At sunset dine aboard or at the beach under the stars. Spend the day snorkelling the reef, swimming with turtles and exploring by dinghy, or just stay on board and marvel at the natural beauty of the Tobago Cays.


Day 5: Chatham Bay

Sail back to Clifton for check out, and then head for the West side of Union Island, where you’ll find Chatham Bay: a beautiful deserted bay surrounded by hills. This Island is excellent for snorkelling and walking ashore.


Day 6: Petite Martinique

Sail Around and dawdle for the night at tranquil Petite Martinique and Petit St. Vincent “one of the world’s most enchanting hideaways”.

Locally known as PSV, this hiker’s paradise of soft rolling hills of tropical woodlands is surrounded by nearly 2 miles of white powdered sand beaches.


Day 7: Back to St George’s

On the way back to St George’s, make a stopover for snorkelling at the stunning underwater sculpture park in Grand Mal Bay, just minutes North of the capital.

Then feel free to explore the beautiful Grenada. The House of Chocolate for decadent chocolate products, Art Batik selling beautiful handmade shirts, sarongs, scarves, napkins etc, the working Belmont Estate cocoa plantation or for a beautiful photo spot, take an uphill hike to Fort George with stunning views of the city, harbour and ocean.
