Lets journey together over the Atlantic to the Caribbean where we find ourselves on the private island of Mustique. Part of the country of St Vincent and the Grenadines, the island has approximately 100 private villa’s and a population of approximately 500. Over the years, Mustique has attracted visits from royalty, celebrities and those seeking a unique island in the crowded Caribbean area. Spanish sailors first set eyes on the islands in the 15th century and named them ‘Los Parajoras’ or ‘the birds’, because they resembled a small flock of birds scattered across the sea in flight. They were later named the Grenadines by pirates who used their sheltered bays to hide their ships and treasures. Later they were used by Europeans to grow sugar cane which have since been abandoned. With its fascinating past, and quality accommodation, Mustique offers a wonderful option for a quality winter holiday option.
