BEST TIME TO VISIT
If you're looking for a more relaxed experience, you may want to consider arranging your boat charter of Mustique during the summer months of June to November. The prices and lower, and the island is less crowded. But it is prone to rain.
Our personal recommendation would be to book a private yacht charter in Mustique for New Year's Eve. There are spectacular fireworks displays, world-renowned DJs, and some of the most exclusive parties in the Caribbean.
Other popular events in the tourist season include the Mustique Blues Festival in February and the Mustique Music Festival in April.
Activities & Experiences
While Mustique may be best known as a celebrity playground, there's much more to this beautiful island than just its A-list visitors. We recommend you:
- The Belem at Le CapAnse Noire: to see the charming black sand beach; and
- Anse Dufour: the sister bay of The Belem, with its white-sand beach
- Au trou Cochon: an intimate little swimming hole with transparent waters that can only be reached by boat.
1. Swim with turtles at Macaroni Beach
Macaroni Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the island, and it's easy to see why. The white sand and turquoise waters are simply breathtaking. But the best part about Macaroni Beach is that it's home to a turtle breeding ground. During your yacht charter, you can take a dip in the water and swim alongside these gentle creatures. It's an unforgettable experience that you won't find anywhere else in the world.
2. Hike to the top of Fort Hill
Fort Hill is the highest point on Mustique, and it offers incredible 360-degree views of the island. The hike to the top is relatively easy and takes about 30 minutes. And it's worth it for the stunning views at the summit. If you're feeling ambitious, you can continue hiking along the trail that leads all the way around the island. It's a beautiful way to explore Mustique's natural landscape.
3. Shop for designer clothes at Basil's Bazaar
Basil's Bar is the most popular spot on the island, and it's known for its celebrity visitors and its designer clothing boutique, Basil's Bazaar. Even if you don't buy anything, it's worth popping into one of the shops to browse the racks of designer duds. If you get hungry, find yourself a seaside table at Basil's Bar, where you can watch the water lap the shore.
Enjoy a high-end lunch at The Veranda, Cotton House
If you want to experience the luxury lifestyle of Mustique, there's no better place to do it than at The Veranda restaurant at Cotton House. This elegant eatery offers a seasonally-inspired menu with fresh seafood, local meats, and vegetarian options. The Veranda is the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner. For those balancing health with indulgence, we recommend you consider a pre-lunch yoga class at the Cotton House Spa.
4. Go horseback riding on the beach
One of the best ways to explore Mustique is on horseback. There are several stables on the island that offer guided tours along the beach. It's a great way to see Mustique's natural beauty and get some exercise at the same time. If you've never been horseback riding before, don't worry. The local guides are experienced and will make sure that you have a safe and enjoyable experience.
5. Spot celebrities at Firefly
As Mustique is known for its VIP visitors, it would be remiss to miss the chance to spot some A-listers for yourself. There's no better place to do that than at Firefly. This popular bar and restaurant is a hot spot for its celebrity patrons, and it's not uncommon to see someone like Leonardo DiCaprio or Gwyneth Paltrow dining here. Even if you don't see any celebrities, Firefly is still worth a visit for its beautiful setting and delicious food.
6. Drop anchor at Lagoon Beach
Lagoon Beach is one of the best spots for anchoring your Mustique yacht charter. The lagoon is sheltered from the waves, and it's a great place to relax on your boat's deck or swim in the turquoise waters. If you're looking for a more active way to spend your time, you can go stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking. There are several rental shops where you can get all the gear you need.
