There is no better place to start your Grenada yacht charter than from Port Louis Marina, located in a natural lagoon opposite the island's charming capital, St. George's. A range of shoreside amenities are available to kick start your vacation in true Caribbean style. Port Louis is the yachting capital of Grenada, and an excellent base from which to explore both the island itself and the spectacular Grenadines just a few miles to the north. Port Louis Marina lies in the lagoon just across from all the local amenities of the islands vibrant capital, St. George's. Home to many bars, restaurants, shops and a market, St. George's draws people from all over the island.

With so many rich spices grown on this "Spice Island", it's no surprise that they are used heavily in the island's dishes. Creole cuisine blends with classic West Indian flavors to create the local specialities. International tastes are also catered to. Many of the restaurants have harbor and ocean views, creating a fantastic al fresco experience.

Carib Beer and Westerhall rum are the local brews and are widely available on Grenada. Unsurprisingly the sea is central to many of the local activities available. Five of the best white sand beaches on the island are all within a 10-minute dinghy ride.

The diving is unspoiled by crowds and many reefs, wrecks and coral walls are waiting to be explored. Fishing is very popular with marlin and tuna among the catches on offer. No visitor to the island should leave without a visit to the waterfalls of the tropical rainforest and the volcanic crater lake of the Grand Etang Forest Reserve.

Day 2: Petite Martinique

Petite Martinique is one of the smallest inhabited islands in the Windward Isles, belonging to the tri-island state of Grenada. The perfect location for an unspoilt yacht charter, Petite Martinique is quiet, tranquil and a unique, cultural destination. Petite Martinique is the smaller sister island of Carriacou, lying just 3 miles east of the north end. It is about a mile in diameter and looks like a mountainous pyramid rising out of the ocean. The Caribbean Sea laps the shores on the western side and the dramatic Atlantic swell breaks on the eastern coast. Petite Martinique contains a population of less than 1,000. Most of the inhabitants are of both African and European descent, blending together a rich Afro-European culture. There is also a strong fishing community here, and much of their fish is sold to mainland Grenada, and also to the French island of Martinique.
This island is a step back in time and taking it easy is the order of the day. Petite Martinique is a great spot to stop for lunch and a swim, but many people will hop less than a quarter of a mile away and anchor in the safer waters of Petit St. Vincent.

A popular restaurant on Petite Martinique is the Palm Beach Restaurant & Bar, situated right on the beach. Catering for al fresco dining guests, you'll enjoy quiet and secluded dining cabanas that offer an intimate dining experience. From the beach you'll see beautiful panoramic views of the neighboring Grenadine Islands. Best of all, a free taxi service for diners is provided from Petit St.Vincent, alleviating the need to choose a designated dinghy driver.

Discover one of the 32 diving sites in the area or just snorkel around the pristine reefs near Clifton Harbor. With so many beaches to choose from and each one as beautiful as the next, selecting the perfect strip of sand maybe one of your hardest decisions.

Day 4: Tobago Cays National Sea Park

The five deserted isles are jewels of the Tobago Cays National Sea Park and one of the premier snorkeling and diving spots within the Grenadines.

The Tobago Cays are located in the Grenadines chain of islands, in the southernmost waters of the state of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Four of the Cays, Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Jamesby and Baradel, are enclosed within the aptly named Horseshoe Reef. The fifth cay, Petit Tabac, lies just to the east of the main group.

Surrounding the islands are a series of reefs and shallows, including Egg Reef and Worlds End Reef on the eastern side, and Mayreu Gardens to the west. The Horseshoe Reef is teeming with coral and tropical fish of every kind. Known as a snorkelers paradise, the water depth here averages 5 to 7 feet. Under the bright sunshine and the crystal clear waters, the bright colors provide the perfect conditions for observing marine life at its finest.

The afternoon sun that shines down on the white-sand bottom and clear water turns the entire area bright emerald; a spectacular sight. On calm days, it is possible to anchor your boat just inside the reef, leaving it as the only obstacle between you and Africa.

Each island is uninhabited and just waiting to be explored. Beautiful white sandy beaches make great places to sit back, have a picnic and enjoy the day. Beach vendors do flit between the islands selling t-shirts, jewelry and even freshly caught lobsters. In the evenings, as the sun sets, you may even come across a beach barbeque.

Mooring: Moorings are available for a fee and there are future plans to add more. Charterers may anchor in one of several locations; the anchorages north and south of Baradel are the most popular

Chatham Bay is one of the best kept treasures of the Grenadines. Just a short hop from Clifton Harbour, it makes an ideal lunchtime stop where the order of the day is tranquility and relaxation. The Bay is surrounded by a backdrop of rolling hills that help keep this area calm and protected.

This lovely crescent beach of golden sand is virtually deserted. During high season, however, there is a small amount of activity well worth observing. The locals host a beach barbeque at a small snack bar on the beach. Don't worry about having to find them to place an order, as they will be sure to find you. Bookings and dinner orders are taken by one of the locals who will come out to your yacht by motorboat.

This is the type of experience that you will enjoy sharing with family and friends for years to come.
