8 days from Martinique to Union
Day 1 : Le Marin (Martinique)
Emerging in the heart of the Caribbean arc, the island of Martinique is part of the Lesser Antilles. By plane you will land at the airport Aimé Césaire of Fort de France (FDF). The main marina is located at Le Marin, in the south of the island, where you can discover your boat. In Martinique, take time to admire the beaches, the tropical forests, and the exceptional panoramas. The cities are rich of their island history, but relaxation and leisure will remain omnipresent during your stay.
Day 2: The Marin - Marigot Bay (Saint Lucia)
Head to Saint Lucia, a mountainous island belonging to the "Windward Islands" to discover Marigot Bay, described by many as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. You will appreciate the mosaic of colours offered by the fauna and flora. Saint Lucia is famous for its two spectacular peaks, its volcano and its "Friday night" at Gros Ilets, not to be missed!
Day 3 : Marigot Bay - Bequia (Saint Vincent)
You can continue south toward Bequia, an island formerly inhabited by Arawak Indians. Bequia is one of the few places in the world where man can brave the whales and catch up to four a year.
The anchorage at Admiralty Bay is surely one of the most pleasant in the Lesser Antilles, and you can take the time to visit the island and in particular the model boat factory and the covered market where breadfruit, Christophines, Mangoes, chillies and spices are piled up, the turtle sanctuary....
Day 4 : Bequia – Ile Moustique
You can take advantage of your entry into the Grenadines to make a stop on the island of the billionaires, Mustique. A tour of Mustique will not take more than a few hours, but be sure to have a cocktail at the famous Basil's bar. The beaches are well worth a visit and if you like you can even order a lobster pizza at Mac's Pizzeria and bump into Mick Jagger.
Day 5 : Ile Moustique - Tobagos Cays
You can sail to the Tobago Cays National Park, one of the most beautiful sights in the world.
We recommend that you anchor behind the Tobago Cays reef and enjoy the view. On the islands, you will probably meet iguanas, you can lie on the sandy beaches to admire the "World end reef" from afar and especially take the opportunity to order your lobster for the next lunch.
Day 6 : Tobagos Cays
The Tobago National Park is listed for wildlife preservation. The fauna and flora is unique and protected. Be careful what sunscreens you use and how you anchor to preserve this wildlife and coral sanctuary. The turtles and fish here will eat out of your hands and you will see some of the most beautiful coral in the world. Smile, you're in Tobago!
Day 7 : Tobagos Cays - Union
Then head to Union, the economic and cultural centre of the Grenadines. Union has a rather mountainous terrain perfect for hikers. Viewpoints not to be missed are Mount Parnassus or Taboi. Union Islands is also one of the few islands where you can find ATMs, so take advantage of this if you need to tip your crew. Finally, you can enjoy the lively evenings of Clifton Bay to the sound of local steel drum music.
Day 8 : Union
After a final breakfast in the sun, you will leave your boat with a head full of memories.
