Beaches & Anchorages in Mustique

December 11, 2019

Mustique is such a peaceful island you may find yourself totally alone on its white sand beaches; even renowned spots such as lovely Macaroni Beach remain tranquil and uncrowded.A collection of shady thatched gazebos provide the best vantage point from which to explore the island’s many beaches. Villa or hotel staff can book a gazebo on the beach of your choice and will prepare a picnic feast for you to enjoy.

Macaroni Bay

One of the most popular beaches on the island. There is a covered picnic area here and the swimming is delightful.

Pasture Bay

A long, sweeping white sand beach with crystalline waters.

Britannia Bay

Although rather rolly, Britannia Bay is the only suitable anchorage in Mustique. The water is sparkling clear and is wonderful for snorkeling and swimming. Take care entering by boat as the Montezuma Shoal (just west of the bay) is quite hazardous. There is a red and black beacon on the reef, stay at least 1/4 of a mile away. 

Endeavour Bay

Ideal swimming and snorkeling conditions.

Gelliceaux Bay

This is one of the ten marine conservation areas in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. These areas are important marine habitats set aside for special management. The snorkeling here is sublime.

L’Ansecoy Bay

This wide beach is located at the north end of the island. Offshore lies the jutting hulk of the French liner Antilles, which ran aground in 1971.

Lagoon Bay

If you follow the southward road out of the village and then the shoreline path, you will happen upon this delightful beach with perfect swimming conditions.
