Tobago Cays Marine Park

The Tobago Cays are now the key element of the Tobago Cays Marine Park run by the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines government. The Marine Park consists of a 1,400-acre (5.7 km2) sand-bottom lagoon which encompasses the five cays, the inhabited island of Mayreau and the 4 km Horseshoe Reef. The Marine Park was listed as a regionally significant ecosystem under the SPAW Protocol in December 2014.



Scuba & Snorkeling  

Colorful marine life abounds with shallow water reefs making an adventure below the surface a spectacular journey that can only be found in the beautiful turquoise waters of the Grenadines. The waters off the Grenadines are among the finest dive locations in the world so it’s natural that you’d want to check out the scene undersea. With everything from frogfish, seahorses, colorful mollusks, crustaceans, anemones and tunicates, divers will be excited by the variety of marine creatures to see. Other underwater friends include nurse sharks, lobsters, octopus and squid.



Mopion

Somewhere between Union Island and Petit St. Vincent there is a magic place: Mopion – an isle (white sand bar) surrounded by a shallow reef. Simply beautiful! A solid wooden umbrella provides good shade. Relax and roll your eyes over the turquoise sea. It’s a dreamy spot, unspoiled.



Fort Duvernette

Next to Young island is a tall, rocky pinnacle and home to the ruins of the elevated canon battery of Fort Duvernette. Fort Duvernette which is located south of mainland St. Vincent, is a 195-foot-high volcanic plug comprised of hard columnar basalt. It is also known locally as ‘Rock Fort’. One can find two batteries with cannons, which were constructed during the colonial era of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, for the defence of the then important town of Calliaqua. The site is also rich with flora and fauna. 


Things to Do

Tobago Cays

The Tobago Cays are an archipelago located in the Southern Grenadines comprising five small islands and extensive coral reefs. The cays – Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tabac and Jamesby – are all uninhabited and are a popular tourism destination. Imagine an intimate cluster of five uninhabited cays, heavenly lagoons full of green turtles, coral reefs, colourful fishes and crystal clear waters.

An idyllic yachting anchorage, a dream for scuba divers, a paradise for beachcombers, and a film location for Pirates of the Caribbean, the Tobago Cays and the Tobago Cays Marine Park is one of the world’s most awe inspiring island destinations. Tobago Cays was listed in Luxurious Magazine’s ‘World’s Chicest Yachting Hotspots For 2013.’

 


Lagoon Beach

Rub shoulders with the rich and famous on a Caribbean island that blends elegance and luxury with natural white sands, palm trees and turquoise seas.

 


Macaroni Beach

Macaroni Beach is perhaps Mustique’s most famous stretch of white sand, though there are also great beaches at L’Ansecoy Bay, Lagoon Bay, Endeavour Bay and Gallicaux Bay. 


Happy Island

If you’ve been to the town of Clifton on Union Island and gazed out into the harbor you probably saw an little spit of land. That little spit is Happy Island. The story of Happy Island is a fascinating one. Created by one man, Janti, Happy Island started out as just a pile of conch shells (lambi) put out into a shallow area in Clifton Harbor. Over the years Janit continued to add conch shells and sand until he had a mound big enough to put up a small bar. People loved the idea and Janti continued to grow his island. During our visit Janti gave us a tour and it’s quite amazing to see what has been created. Happy Island has growing coconut palms, sand floors, dinghy landing areas, inside and outside sitting areas, working refrigerator and enough Caribbean rum to sauce even the most experienced of sailors. Pretty amazing what a little concrete, conch shells and some hard work can do.  Janti now lives on Happy Island, he has built living quarters and all electricity is created right on site.
