Located in the south of the Caribbean, Grenada and Carriacou boast excellent inland exploring opportunities and well-catered ports for docking whether on your own yacht or enjoying a luxury yacht charter in Grenada.
Grenada is a mix of lush vegetation – a large proportion of the island is covered in rain forest and volcanic stone. But Grenada is well known for something else: Known as the Isle of Spice, Grenada is one of the world’s largest exporters of nutmeg and mace.
From pristine beaches to some of the best dives in the Caribbean, to a rich history and culture, Grenada offers the best of the Caribbean. Its capital city, St George, has earned the reputation of ‘prettiest Caribbean town.’
Carriacou is a sleepy, docile island with a great mix of lazy cafes, beaches and shores that are simply excellent for a spot of snorkelling.
Day 1: St George’s, spice islands capital
Arrive at Maurice Bishop International Airport and get whisked off to your yacht, berthed in Port Louis Marina. The marina is located next to the Carenage – a picturesque, naturally horseshoe-shaped port basin around which St George’s, the capital, is set.
Dine on board against a backdrop of red-roofed brick and stone buildings tucked into the hillside as the ‘spice island’s’ perfume of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and ginger wafts through the air.
