After breakfast set sail for the pretty St Vincent and the Grenadines Island called Bequia. Anchor off Princess Margaret Beach and enjoy great snorkeling straight from the beach. Bequia is home to a turtle sanctuary that is well worth a visit. This island is very laid back and not commercialized at all. Stroll down the tiny main street where fruit stalls line the street. There are numerous great dive sites along the wall heading down to Mouse Hole the incredible private estate built in the 1950’s into the stone cliff. These days only a few of these houses are habitable, even so they are amazing.
Now it’s time to sail to Mustique the private island where the rich and famous hang out. Celebrities like Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams & the late David Bowie own luxury villas on this island.

Enjoy a sundowner cocktail at the famous Basils Bar where you can look at your yacht anchored in the bay. Next morning why not hire a Mule a petrol Golf Cart and drive around the island and visit the beaches on the windward side of the island, they’re wild and beautiful.
