Exploring the Grenadines on Binti - Mustique

Exploring the Grenadines includes colorful coral and fish.Exploring the Grenadines – Mustique

With nine pristine individual beaches, world renowned Basil’s Beach Bar, scuba diving, snorkeling and much more, Mustique is the ideal private island sanctuary for those who are tired of the usual holiday destinations.  Princess Margaret built a house here, Les Jolies Eaux, because it was the one place she could kick off her shoes and be herself.  For Tommy Hilfiger Mustique’s appeal “lies in its contradictions. It’s sophisticated yet natural, Caribbean casual yet Upper East Side elegant, endlessly social yet perfectly private.”  While Mustique has 74 villas to choose from, exploring the Grenadines with Binti makes it possible to experience the island’s raw and natural beauty without being tied down to the same villa and beach for the length of your stay.

Mustique is a very private island visited by only a few who seek seclusion and serenity.  While there are plenty of secluded beaches for swimming and relaxing like Macaroni Beach, Endeavour, Lagoon, L’Ansecoy and Simplicity beaches, discovering the island and its history is just as much fun.  Exploring the Grenadines with Binti means personally getting to know the islands and no one helps you to accomplish this more than Binti’s own Captain Joseph.   Whether it’s walking the paved roads to Mustique’s only remaining sugar mills, at “Endeavor” and “Cotton House,” or shopping at the island grocery store and fish market, Captain Joseph loves taking charterers along.

Captain Joseph has sailed the Caribbean waters most of his life and knows them all as well as all the islands.  In fact, when it comes to exploring the Grenadines and snorkeling, Captain Joseph knows exactly where the submerged reefs and coral heads are.  While most reefs are at or near the surface, some can extend fairly deep in the water.  Captain Joseph anchors close to these reefs in the sand so the reef is a jump off Binti’s stern.

As an avid snorkeler, Captain Joseph frequently goes snorkeling with charterers exploring the Grenadines to show them the best spots.  But if you prefer diving, Joseph can dinghy to the dive shop on Mustique as he knows all the dive shops and has all their contact information.  But if it’s a secluded dive you wanted, Joseph knows the best dive spots and he can make all the arrangements for a spectacular dive.

Joseph can also take you to Basil’s Beach Bar, where you can listen to the water lapping below as you hang out with visitors from all over the world in this one of a kind thatch and bamboo landmark.  With an extensive menu full of West Indian delights, you can start your day with banana pancakes and omelettes, succulent burgers and French fries in the afternoon and Basil’s fresh lobster as you watch the sun set.  It’s a party every night at Basil’s with some dancing to the music supplied by the house band or DJ.  And don’t forget to drop by the boutique at Basil’s Beach Bar where you can pick up your own copy of “The Bird-Life of Mustique in the Grenadines.”  What better way to learn about and identify the birds you’ll see as you’re exploring the Grenadines with Binti.

Exploring the Grenadines with Binti gives you the flexibility to make your own itinerary, spending as little or as much time as you want on Mustique’s unspoiled white-sand beaches, snorkeling and swimming or touring the island.  Binti is your own exclusive traveling resort that’s ideal for exploring the Grenadines when you don’t want to limit your extended stay in the Caribbean to one destination.
