Mustique Yacht Charters – Things to See & Do
Here are some of the top sites that you can experience on Mustique yacht charters:
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 on your luxury yacht charter.
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.
Basil’s famous local bar/restaurant is always a fun stop while on your yacht charter in Mustique. Rub shoulders with the rich and famous that have residents on this private island (Jagger, the Queen, and the late Bowie to name a few). If you happen to be there on a Wednesday night, a local “Jump Up” and lobster Buffett is a good choice.
