Welcome to Mayreau!
Mayreau is situated about 7 miles South of Canouan. Mayreau has a
population of only about 200 in the one village on the highest hill of the
Mayreau is a beach lovers paradise: in the north of Mayreau is Salt
Whistle Bay, a perfect half moon beach, separating the Atlantic from the
Caribbean side with a sand spit only 50 yards wide, fringed by palm trees.
southwestern,leeward beach is Saline Bay, nearly a mile of white sand with
calm, clear water,ideal to bring your family! Overlooking Saline Bay is
Dennis'guesthouse, bar and restaurant.
The island is close to Union with its small airport connecting it to Barbados, Carriacou, Grenada and Martinique. Because of that we usually suggest starting a crewed yacht charter in Bequia or St. Vincent and disembarking in Union Island or Mayreau. This way you get to see most of the Grenadines in a relatively short time.
History: After the original settlers, Indians from South America, the
island has been in the possession of French settlers and plantation owners. They
brought enslaved people to the island, mostly from West Africa. When slavery was
abolished, little materially changed for the population, people still relied on
farming and fishing. As a result, a lot of men went to sea to work on freighters
to support their families though tourism has some great potential.
