Image for The Windward Islands of the Caribbean have some of the most beautiful, uncrowded beaches in the world. They’re dream territory for sailors, and a sailing trip is one of the best ways to see them. This is Carriacou Harbour.

I sailed around the islands on a tall ship with Windjammer Barefoot Cruises. They’re now defunct, but a group of avid customers got together and resurrected a similar operation called Island Windjammers. These trips are a fun and relaxing way to get to even the smallest islands – the ones the big cruise ships can’t reach. #blue

Hillsborough is a quaint town right out of earlier century. This makes it very fascinating for me! There is a unique attraction about this that certainly would make me want to return to this place.

Classic small island town, keep in mind most things shut down after dark, on Sundays, and holidays. Recommend Mermaid Hotel and Kayak Kafe for lunches!

Safe area. Very relaxing. No one trying to sell anything while you are in the beach which is different than Grenada
