Scattered between St. Vincent and Grenada, the Tobago Cayes comprises five little islands: Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tabac, and Jamesby. This rosary of uninhabited cayes in the southern West Indies is a marine park that has some outstanding marine fauna in its turquoise lagoons. Girded and united by a coral reef, these secluded islands are a peaceful paradise for swimmers and snorkelers.
In the heart of the Caribbean, Bequia is the second-largest of 32 islands that make up the country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. This secluded island is popular with visiting yachters and divers. Port Elizabeth, the island's main town, has a lively atmosphere. Further afield there are tropical rainforest and white-sand beaches providing a natural setting for peaceful walks.
Bridgetown, the bustling capital of Barbados, is located on the island's southwest coast. Its historic quarters have been named UNESCO World Heritage sites and contain prime examples of British colonial architecture, which you will see between the postcard-perfect fishing harbor and St. Ann's Fort. Streets shaded by palms and flamboyant trees lead you to the Anglican cathedral church of St Michael, built from coral stone, the Barbados Museum and George Washington House, a Georgian-style mansion. There'll be plenty of time to relax on the Caribbean beaches of Carlisle Bay, a few paces from the old town center.
Located on the western coast of Martinique, Fort-de-France will amaze you by the splendor of its bay, a magnificent cut-out in the coastline, considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. Disembark the vessel in the early morning.
