Mayreau

<Back to Bequia>    <Back to the Caribbean Page>    <on to the Tobago Cays>

Mayreau, positioned due west to the Tobago Cays, is a small dry island lined with pristine beaches. A short hike through the hills reveals a breathtaking view of the Cays, and the surrounding waters, as well as a small close knit community.

 

May 17th - After a perfect sail, in tandem with 'Annie B', we dropped our anchor behind 'Willow' in Salt Whistle Bay. The water is clear, and the bay is lined with a beautiful beach, covered in Palm trees. After we'd anchored Alex jumped in the water to cool off, and joined Brenda and John from 'Willow' for a snorkel.

May 18th - Went with 'Willow', 'Itza Purla', and Annie B to the church on Mayreau. It was a short and hot walk up the hill to the famous tiny church, and we were greeted with an amazing view of Tobago cays, and the rest of the Grenadines.
