A tiny, 1.5 square mile patch of unspoilt forests and rolling hills, palm-lined beaches and picturesque, postcard-perfect bays situated in the East Caribbean Sea, Mayreau is the Grenadines’ smallest island and a slice of quintessential Caribbean paradise.
Largely uninhabited, apart from a small, unnamed town that’s home to less than 300 people, Mayreau is unlike many of the Caribbean’s larger, often overcrowded islands. There are no resorts here, so the island provides an escape from the region’s regular tourist trails, and often the only visitors are those who have arrived by boat to worship the sunshine on the glorious golden sands, or take advantage of warm, crystal-clear waters that are perfect for swimming and snorkelling.
There’s every chance that, during a visit to Mayreau on a Fred. Olsen cruise, you’ll find you have the beaches and bays all to your yourself, or at the very least available to enjoy in the company of your like-minded travelling companions alone.
