Windward Islands This bejewelled chain of Caribbean islands sweeps south from Martinique to Grenada. The big islands of St Lucia, with its trademark Piton peaks, St Vincent and Grenada are all volcanic, lush, mountainous and densely forested - fabulous for hiking and exploring ashore. The Grenadines, strung out between St Vincent and Grenada, have melodic sounding names such as Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, and don’t forget Petit St Vincent. The livin’ here is easy. No big marinas, so anchoring out is the way to go.
