Might Be Time to Consider Mustique

I don’t know much about Mustique. I’ve never been, or even come close.

Not that I’m griping, of course. After all, I do tend to get around much of the rest of the Caribbean on a basis beyond what most people would consider regular, so what could be so bad about missing out on little old Mustique?

Err, dumb question. Just check out the video above to see why.

The luxury vacation experience here has long been legendary, and there’s ample evidence of it throughout the video. What strikes me, though, are the variety of water sports options, the island’s diverse topography, and its cool and breezy vibe.

Luxury here certainly doesn’t appear to be all about lazing your days away under the warm sun, a notion that’s got me taking a closer look at Mustique, maybe for next year…

  • Your brother sailed right by while on his sailing trip through the Grenadines and while bareboating there a few years back we spent a few nights at Mustique. The island is extremely laid back and quiet. The best thing to do is to rent a “mule” and explore the island. There are a couple of fantastic beaches. One, Macaroni beach (that’s the beach largely featured in the video) is probably the best “Atlantic Ocean” beach I have visited in the Caribbean. You definitely shouldn’t miss spending a night at Basil’s Bar right on the water or enjoy happy hour at the Firefly on a hillside for a sunset.

    I spent a glorious week with friends on Mustique — we rented a Moroccan villa, Toucan Hill, located at the highest point on the island. Teh staff…and particulsarly the chef were am amazing. The island is like an untouched paradise and we made fast friends with other homeowners and rentrs…kind of like a fun club. Arranged all thru BeautifulPlaces.com.
