6 nights round trip St Lucia Windward Islands
Bequia may be known for its boat building and seafaring heritage, but it’s the seafood pizza at Mac’s that shipmates can’t seem to forget. Be sure to visit the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, but save some time for shopping at tiny boutiques filled with local art, scrimshaw and model boats. A sail, kayak or dive excursion from the white beaches of Bequia completes your visit.
Take a hike through the village to the other side of Mayreau for a refreshing swim in gleaming Saltwhistle Bay, arguably the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean. Be sure to stop at the crest of the hill by the church for a majestic view of Tobago Cays, Canouan and Union Island. The highlight of any visit to Mayreau is the Cultural Walk, a progressive tour of local watering holes that offers an “intoxicating” taste of the local nightlife.
St. Lucia is romantic, a little wild and very seductive. Imagine an afternoon swim in the shadow of the majestic Pitons, or a drive to the top off a volcano, to watch it bubble and steam. Zip-line through the tree tops of the lush rainforest, mountain bike, sail, golf and dive. Eco-adventurers will have a thrill a minute; everyone else will just be thrilled!
Play in beautiful Wallilabou Bay where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. See ancient Amerindian rock carvings at the Layou Petroglyph Park. Stroll the cobblestone streets of Kingstown and get to know the locals in the bustling marketplace. Take in the beauty of the fertile Mesopatamia Valley, where crops, fruit, vegetables and spices are grown.
Why settle for one perfect uninhabited islet when you can have many? Tobago Cays are what tropical dreams are made of: stretches of unspoiled beaches, water as clear as glass, and “t-shirt trees” that beg you to bring unique home colorful souvenirs. You'll be counting the days until you can return!
Happiness is basking in the sun on pearly white powder beaches, or taking a hike on one of the many trails that criss-cross the island. Slip into brilliant blue water for a swim, and call it a perfect day.
