Details: Most tour boats and private vessels call in at Mayreau’s idyllic Saltwhistle Bay. A wonderful white sand beach with resort hotel and tranquil seas, this natural anchorage is a perfect introduction to this lovely island. Across a narrow isthmus next to the resort is the Windward Careenage which also has a nice secluded beach. Take a walk uphill from Saltwhistle Bay towards the village, calling in at the quaint old Catholic Church. Walk around the back of this pretty stone building for great views of the Tobago Cays.

There are a number of tracks running from the top of the village. One runs across the ridge to Tamarind Hill, others go down to the beach at Upper Bay. Take a walk down through the village and meet some of its very friendly people before reaching the salt pond and charming beach at Saline Bay.
