Saltwhistle Bay

Mayreau is one of the Grenadines islands and Saltwhistle Bay was our first stop. When we arrived there were very few yachts and so we could pick a good spot, nice and close to the beach. This was the first destination, since we returned to Melody, that we truly experienced the “deserted tropical island” feeling.  

None of these photos have been edited to enhance the colors of the water etc. This is exactly as we experienced it (just a little more spectacular in person).

It’s  easy to get used to palm trees and white beaches but water this colour, this clear and warm never gets old. It was so good we returned a second time, a few days later, on our way to Tobago Cays.

crystal clear - we could see our chain and anchor without having to do a dive check
