Visit St Vincent on your luxury yacht charter in the Grenadines
Perfect for yacht charters, St. Vincent is one of the most gorgeous yacht charter destinations in the Caribbean Sea. Composed of 36 volcanic islands – each surrounded by sparkling, emerald-green waters, and dotted with white-sand beaches and towering palm trees – St. Vincent is known for its private islands, upscale resorts and interesting history.
Unlike other high-end tourist destinations, St. Vincent has something for every type of yacht charter guest; it’s a place where harbors are filled with multi-million dollar mega yachts bobbing alongside everyday sailboats. For a taste of the archipelago’s true charm, dive or snorkel below sea level to see its colorful coral reefs and mingle with St. Vincent’s plentiful sea life. When you come up for air, wander through its capital, Kingstown, for cobble stone streets, colonial buildings, delicious locale restaurants and true Caribbean vibes like you’ve never had before.
Things to See and Do in St Vincent
Here are some of the top sites to experience during your next Grenadines yacht charter to the enchanting St Vincent:
Petit St. Vincent
The birthplace of imagined island fantasies, Petit St. Vincent is a privately owned island filled with enchanting ocean-view villas, rolling hillsides, pristine bays, and at its core, a luxury island resort. Staying true to its ideals of exclusivity, this special place has no cell phone service or televisions – allowing guests to spend all of their time enjoying its authentic island charms.
St Vincent Botanical Gardens
First built in 1765, the St. Vincent Botanical Gardens make up 20 acres of exotic plant life – from hibiscus, cinnamon and nutmeg, to mahogany trees, palms and a historic breadfruit tree that has been on the island for years. As the oldest botanical gardens in the entire West Indies, this locale is frequented by bird lovers and history aficionados alike; the St. Vincent National Museum is onsite, which houses pre-Columbian Indian, Arawak, and Carib artifacts, stone carvings and clay works for all to explore.
Running from Kingstown to Richmond Beach, all along St. Vincent’s sheltered west coast, the enchanting Leeward Highway winds in and around the island’s cliff tops, through local villages, and past black sand beaches, coconut plantations and even Carib Rock – a carved rock face dating back to 600 AD. Along the way, yacht charter guests will be able to see the island’s tallest peak and active volcano, La Soufrière; and can even take a side trip to the Falls of Baleine, a beautiful waterfall on the island’s northwestern tip.
