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. Pristine reefs, colorful coral gardens and untouched sunken shipwrecks surrounding the shores make for irresistible snorkeling and scuba diving.
Sailing Collective will provision your journey with local foods and produce.

Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat. Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes such as flip-flops that you can get wet if we are landing on a beach.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements — bring a light raincoat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style. Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes that you can get wet is recommended.
The Tobago Cays are a cluster of several small islands that are of the most spectacular in all the Caribbean Islands. Preserved as a national marine park, the Tobago Cays are filled with white sand beaches, turtles, and spectacular shoreline snorkeling. Romeo, a local ‘boat boat’ as they call the local waterfront caretakers has become famous around the island, often dinghying up to the sailboats as we arrive selling fresh lobsters. Spend the day snorkeling and counting turtles in the protected sea-turtle lagoon. We’ll dine on the boat enjoying the natural Caribbean all around us.
The smallest inhabited island of the Grenadines is incredibly tranquil. With no airstrip, the only way to travel to the island is by boat. Picturesque beaches and bays dot the shores and inland you'll find a friendly village with a quaint old church. Largely known by outsiders as a world-famous kiteboarding destination, Union Island has a bustling harbor with a simple beachfront dotted variety of inns and restaurants. At sunset, we'll dinghy up to Happy Island, a rum shack atop a heap of conch shells in Clifton Harbor, for a punch and front-row view of the surfers.
Grenada is a Caribbean country comprised of the main, name-sake island, and dozens of smaller surrounding islands .Dubbed the “Spice Isle,” the hilly main island is home to numerous nutmeg plantations. It’s also the site of the capital, St. George’s, whose colorful homes, Georgian buildings and early-18th-century Fort George overlook narrow Carenage Harbour. To the south is Grand Anse Beach, with resorts and bars.
