Grenada, the spice island of the Caribbean, lies at the southernmost tip of the Windward Islands. Just a short hop from neighboring Carriacou, Petite Martinique and St. Vincent, this untouched island offers a true taste of the Caribbean.
Onshore, this rolling mountainous island is home to natural parks and tropical rainforest with hidden waterfalls that cascade into clear shimmering pools of water. In fact, one-sixth of Grenada’s landmass is made up of preserved parks and natural wildlife sanctuaries. More than 40 picturesque white and black sand beaches are spread across Grenada’s coastline, some of which have been voted the world’s best.
Lapped by tropical turquoise waters, try as hard as you might, you won’t be able to resist taking a dip as soon as you arrive at Sunsail’s base in Port Louis Marina.

Designed by the architects Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prévost (VPLP) in association with the Lagoon R&D department, the 620 is an innovative solution to the needs of today's cruising yachtsman : Strength, comfort, performance and large choice of layouts. The 2012 version of the 620, with interiors designed by Nauta, makes her an even more luxurious and comfortable yacht. In the dining room, the settees have been entirely redesigned, as well as the ceiling, enabling more effective indirect lighting, and it now includes the option of installing adjustable blinds on all the wide vertical windows.
