Visit Mustique on your luxury yacht charter in the Grenadines
Steeped in history and intrigue, the beautiful island of Mustique – just west of Barbados – is known for its gentle, year-round climate, rocky landscapes, rolling hilltops, towering palm trees and soft, golden sand beaches. Unlike any other place on earth, the island of Mustique is home to some of the most exclusive villas in the world.
To the fortunate yacht charter guests who get to go there, it has been said that life on Mustique is like having your own private tropical island. Approximately 1,400 acres in diameter, the island encompasses vibrant coral reefs, plenty of sunshine, and a variety of Caribbean fauna, like tortoises and heron. Dotted with 100 luxury villas, as well as a handful of upscale hotels, Mustique has a year-round population of about 500 residents – all living in the quaint villages of Lovell, Britannia Bay and Dover.
Things to See and Do in Mustique
Here are some of the top sites to experience during your next Grenadines yacht charter to Mustique:
Accessible only by boat, Macaroni Beach is regarded as the island’s most enchanting stretch of beach. With its golden sands, rustic palm huts, few inhabitants, and surrounding, translucent waters, Macaroni Beach is one of Mustique’s must-see haunts.
Located just beyond Lagoon Bay Beach, Gallicaux Bay is Mustique’s best place for snorkeling. With its golden beaches, clear waters, vibrant sea life and idyllic horizon views, this haunt is also considered one of the most romantic places in all of the Caribbean.
Sitting just along the leeward coast is Britannia Bay, a natural anchorage in Mustique. Home to the wharf, jetty, boutique shopping, a small fishery, and several local and gourmet food stores, this part of Mustique houses the famous Basil’s Bar and Lovell Village, where most of the island locals live.
