MY FAVOURITE PLACE
WINDWARD ISLANDS Caribbean
Charter Broker, Worth Avenue Yachts
This majestic chain of islands in the Southern Caribbean boasts some of the most pristine, magical scenery in the entire Caribbean. I will never forget the first time I anchored in between the breathtaking Pitons and wondered if it was real. It had rained overnight and there was a towering waterfall streaming down from the top of the Piton 2,000ft above sea level – it was a magnificent, beautiful scene. I spent several seasons as chief stewardess on charters between Grenada and St Lucia, an itinerary that I most often recommend to my clients. The Windward Islands offer an array of exhilarating activities. I highly recommend taking a helicopter tour through the Pitons in St Lucia where you can appreciate their beauty. In Grenada, jump off the Seven Sisters Waterfalls in Grand Etang National Park for a thrilling experience. Don’t be surprised to spot pods of dolphins or whales. If you enjoy snorkelling or diving, there are many outstanding sites. If you are a golfer, you must visit the course in Canouan with unbelievable sea views.
