Caribbean Yachting Ports and *Sample Land Adventures

Bequia, Grenadines, Port Elizabeth - Little changed by time, Bequia is an island on which life is completely oriented to the sea. Its seclusion has ensured that it has retained its age-old traditions of boat building and fishing. The islanders are the world's last hand-harpooners. A hilly and forested center of the island provides a dramatic backdrop to the bays and beaches. Bequia is encircled by gold-sand beaches, many of which disappear into coves, excellent for sailing, scuba diving and snorkeling.

Carriacou, Grenadines, Hillsborough - Carriacou, known as “the island surrounded by reefs” is the largest of the Grenadines. Settled by the French, it was ceded to the British in 1973. Take in the miles of empty white sand beaches, deep aqua bays and the spectacular hill views of the surrounding Grenadine islands. Nature trails, gorgeous reefs and safe anchoring harbors attract people from all over the world. The beaches at Grand Anse on Hillsborough Bay are of white coral sands.

Jost Van Dyke, BVI

Anegada, British Virgin Islands - The only major coral island within the British Virgin Islands, Anegada is almost completely surrounded by reefs. Due to the shallow waters, Anegada is exclusively visited by yachts that come to enjoy the solitude as well as what are likely the Caribbean’s most beautiful, unspoiled and deserted sixteen miles of sandy beaches. Only 28' above sea level, it is often referred to as the “drowned island”. In addition to its famous beaches, the island is also well known for its lobsters. The SEADREAM tender will land you on the pier at an area referred to as “Setting Point” located at the southwest side of the island and the only point accessible through the reef. As you walk along the pier look along the sides and you may spot some of the famous island lobsters in native traps.

Anguilla, Leeward Islands, Sandy Ground - When Christopher Columbus sighted the island and noticed its eel -like shape, he called it Anguilla, which means "eel" in Spanish. Today, the island is known as a retreat for celebrities, and is sometimes called the "South Beach" of the Caribbean with Shoal Bay being one of the most highly acclaimed beaches in the world. Boat racing is fiercely participated in and the passion of the Anguilla people for their national sport is reflected in the huge crowds that come out to support their boat.

*Yachting Land Adventure: Visit Mustique - This elite private island is only a 5minute power or sail boat ride away. Tommy Hilfiger, Princess Margaret, Mick Jagger and more, own homes on this beautiful island.

Canouan, Grenadines, Grand Bay - Carib for "island of turtles", this is one of the less developed islands of the Grenadines. Boot-shaped and about three miles long and a mile wide, Grand Bay is the center of this island and its main spectacular beach. There is a mile-long reef surrounding Canouan which makes it a snorkeler’s or diver’s dream. The secluded and exclusive island of Canouan is home to the Trump International Golf Club; one of a very few good places in the Caribbean to play 18 holes of golf.

Culebrita Island, Puerto Rico, - A National Wildlife Refuge with secluded beaches and crystal clear waters. The crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkeling on some of the most spectacular reefs in all of the Caribbean. The only permanent structure you will find on the island is an abandoned lighthouse, high on the hill. For the energetic, a hike up the trail is well worth it for the views you can get of the surrounding area. The beaches are also nesting grounds for endangered sea turtles. Yacht’s Marina: Swimming *Yachting Land Adventure: Walk along a deserted beach and take in the beauty of this unspoiled island.

SEADREAM Late Night Stay *Yachting Land Adventure: Dine & Gamble at Villa Monte Carlo in the Raffles Resort

Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands, White Bay - With only 200 inhabitants, Jost Van Dyke is said to have been named for an early Dutch settler, a former pirate. Four miles long, the "barefoot" island is known by travelers around the world for its casual lifestyle, protected anchorages, fine beaches and beachfront restaurants and bars. The "Painkiller", one of the most famous cocktails in the Caribbean, was invented at The Soggy Dollar Bar. A favorite destination for yachtsmen, Jost Van Dyke is home to the famous Foxy's Bar. White Bay, named for its long and lovely white sand beach, is protected by extensive reefs and is a wonderful place to take in some snorkeling.

Mayreau, Grenadines - Mayreau’s population of only around 200, lives in a village on the highest hill of the island. From the church on top of Station Hill you will enjoy the most spectacular view of the Grenadines. In the north of Mayreau is Salt Whistle Bay, a perfect half moon beach separating the Atlantic from the Caribbean with a sand spit that is only 50 yards wide and fringed by palm trees. The windward side of Mayreau is where you will find a huge deserted beach. You could spend days sunbathing and snorkeling in the underwater world of Mayreau Garden. The southwestern, leeward beach is Saline Bay, with nearly a mile of white sand and calm, clear water.

Nevis, Federation of St Kitts/Nevis, Charlestown - Nevis is conical in shape with a volcanic peak at the centre. The island is fringed by golden sand beaches and has a coastline intermittently protected by coral reefs. The color of the sand is a result of the mixture of coral, foraminifera and volcanic sand. The name Nevis is derived from, Nuestra Señora de las Nieves ("Our Lady of the Snows"), a Spanish name given to the island by Columbus who thought the clouds over Nevis Peak made the island resemble a snow-capped mountain. The charming port of Charlestown is also its capital.

Saba, Netherland Antilles - Sometimes referred to as the “Unspoiled Queen”, Saba is the smallest island of the Netherlands Antilles. It consists largely of the dormant volcano, Mount Scenery. Saba's lush plant and wildlife are diverse and are looked after by the Saba Conservation Foundation. Saba is one of the premier diving spots in the Caribbean and for some, in the world. It also offers fantastic hikes at various skill levels.

The volcanic 4.25 square mile island has landscapes as varied as its culture and history. This “Island of Flowers” mixes a refined French ambience with the warm and spicy West Indian charm. Beautiful white or blue sand beaches with lush rain forests representing every shade of green, and ferns as tall as trees, add to the exotic enjoyment.

Montserrat, Little Bay, UK Territory - “The Emerald Island of the Caribbean”, due both to its resemblance to coastal Ireland and to the Irish descent of most of its early settlers. The island of Montserrat has been blessed with one of the most dramatic geographies ranging from volcanic peaks that have been dormant for over 400 years to spectacular coastlines. Approaching the island you see the Soufrière Hills, becoming active in 1995 and still erupting today although at a much reduced rate. It is one of the the most closely monitored volcanoes in the world. Prior to the recent volcanic eruptions, Montserrat was considered one of the “Insiders” favorite Caribbean islands. It was also home to producer George Martin’s Air Studios Montserrat where some of the world’s most famous recording artists, including Eric Clapton, Little River Band and Paul McCartney among many others, used to record their albums. Yacht’s Marina: Motorized Water Sports – Swimming *Yachting Land Adventure: Montserrat Then & Now – Discover the dramatic and verdant landscape of this small island.

At the southern end of town is the marina port La Royale, providing elegant stores with the latest in European designer fashions and fine jewelry and all Duty-Free.

Vieques, Puerto Rico, Esperanza - SEADREAM has designed an evening stop at this tiny community along Vieques’ southern coast. The SEADREAM tender will bring you right to the center of this village. From the pier you can take a walk along the waterfront promenade where you will find a handful of little shops. There are also a couple of bars and quaint restaurants all within walking distance.
