The perfect place to get away from it allRelax in your hammock overlooking pristine beaches
The Grenadines is the perfect place to get away from it all. Expect stunning seascapes and picture-perfect beaches. Luxury holidays to The Grenadines are all about enjoying the slow-paced island life, whether you’re strolling around picturesque harbours, scuba diving next to pristine coral reefs or going on a rainforest adventure.
An array of activities
Relaxing in a hammock by the ocean is always tempting, but The Grenadines has so much more to offer. Those who love watersports are in luck, as there’s plenty of chances for swimming, snorkeling and sailing. Some of the Caribbean’s best diving spots can be found at the Tobago Cays national park. Here, you can swim with sea turtles, parrotfish and all kinds of colourful tropical sea creatures.
The Grenadines is also known for its yacht harbours, and sailing and boat trips are always on the agenda. If you fancy a change of scenery, regular ferries transport passengers to and from the many islands. Meanwhile, if you enjoy hiking, there are volcanoes to climb, rainforests to explore and waterfalls to dive into to.
The islands in The Grenadines are famed for their many beaches. Princess Margaret Beach is one of the loveliest stretches of sand, flanked by dazzling turquoise waters and lush vegetation. The warm and calm waters of Princess Margaret Bay also make it ideal for swimming.
Another popular spot is Big Sand on Richmond Bay, with its soft white sand and forest-covered mountains.
Back to nature
Some parts of The Grenadines have no Wi-Fi, telephones or even TV - perfect for holidaymakers who want to completely disconnect from the outside world. Relaxing days can be spent getting back to nature and going for leisurely strolls along the beach.
Not all luxury hotels in the Grenadines are disconnected though, so you can still enjoy home comforts during your tropical island retreat. These upmarket resorts offer a range of delicious food and rejuvenating spa and wellness centres, where you can choose from a variety of indulgent treatments.
The island has a rich heritage and multi-ethnic culture, thanks to French, Portuguese and British settlers. Influences from these different countries can be seen in the island’s cuisine, architecture and music.
Although The Grenadines islands are small, there are a handful of interesting, historical buildings to explore. The imposing Fort Charlotte stands, which stands on top of a 660ft-high ridge, is well worth a visit. The fort was built as a military post in 1806 and still has a few of the original cannons.
Music is a large part of island culture, particularly Caribbean gospel, calypso, and steel band music, and it’s always worth trying to catch a live performance when visiting.
Most of the ingredients you’ll eat in the hotels and restaurants will have been produced locally. Fish meals are often made from the morning catch, which is sold to the chef just hours before it’s cooked. Be sure to taste the national dish of fried jackfish and roasted breadfruit, and wash it down with the Grenadines favourite drinks of Hairoun beer and Sunset rum.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
