Consisting of over 30 islands and cays, only nine of which are inhabited, St Vincent and the Grenadines are justifiably named the 'Jewels of the Caribbean'. With most of the sprawling archipelago only accessible by boat, this is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing yacht charter in total seclusion.

Short sailing distances make it a breeze to visit rainforests or white sand beaches, buzzing ports or relaxed reggae shacks. An endless choice of private anchorages, opportunities to snorkel with marine life and exciting wreck dives all add to the allure of the Grenadines. Hike alongside verdant pathways to bathe under cascading waterfalls, where the scenery and wildlife are so breath-taking that a photograph will never deliver the raw beauty witnessed first hand.

With so many exquisite sailing areas and reef-lined islands to explore, the essential item to bring on board when planning a superyacht charter itinerary in the Grenadines is time. The islands all have their own quintessential exoticism and laid-back culture. Be sure to visit Bequia, with its secluded Margaret Beach, Hegg Turtle Sancturary and excellent Music Fest in January. In the south west, enjoy the low-key Canouan Island offering the height of relaxation and the coral reefs of Tobago Cays Marine Park with its outstanding underwater discoveries.
