If you are looking to escape the city-life, look no further than Trinidad y Tobago. Comprised of rainforests and waterfalls, this dual-island Caribbean nation is the perfect escape for those wanting to immerse themselves in nature. Sail around the island and venture to perfect snorkeling sites accessed only by water, navigate to the neighbouring paradisiac islands, and most importantly visit Turtle Beach, a turtle nesting site of global importance.
Below is a sample 7-day yachting itinerary in Trinidad & Tobago. Enjoy.
Before departing, make sure to explore the northern mountains with a local guide where your group can enjoy the waterfalls, caves and rainforest as well as some of the best birdwatching in the Caribbean. In the afternoon, cruise to the north coast and spend the night at Scotland Bay.
Arrive in Tobago's main town of Scarborough and head to Buccoo Reef where you'll enjoy some of the best snorkeling on the island since the reef is part of a protected marine park. Make sure to end your day at Pigeon Point, known for its incredible sunsets.
Head along the coast and make sure to stop at Turtle Beach if between March – August during turtle nesting season. Afterwards, stop at Castara Bay for lunch, and swim with the manta rays at one of the two golden sand beaches. Take your tender ashore and cool off in forest waterfalls.
Man O'War Bay is the perfect area to explore by yacht since your tender can take you to private beaches inaccessible from land. Most of these bays are secluded with multi-colored sand beaches and protected reefs. Finish your day in Pirate's Bay where they filmed Robinson Crusoe back in 1952.
Depart Tobago early morning and head to the island of Grenada, best known for its black sand beaches, waterfalls, and its exotic spices. Enjoy live steel drum music from the yacht club's bar and relax in the bay, which is one of the best anchorages on the island.
After breakfast on your yacht, take the tender ashore and meet your guide for a tour of Grand Etang National Park where you can do a guided hike among the stunning Seven Sister Falls. Make sure the group is fit since this is an intense trail, but absolutely worth it.
Spend the morning exploring St. George's, the capital city of Grenada, which is dotted with 18th century colonial buildings, spice markets and local shops. After breakfast, depart for Trinidad and spend your final day on a lovely cruise back to Trinidad just in time for sunset.
