Destination guide

Mustique brings that luxe private island mystique

Private islands might seem like the thing of Hollywood movies, but now you can get a taste of the glamorous life at a Mustique vacation rental. Tucked in the south Caribbean and part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, this tiny island is owned by the Mustique Company, which in turn is owned by people from around the world who live in the island's posh villas. The only thing more beautiful than those villas is the landscape, with serene white beaches stretching out along the turquoise sea. It's hard to imagine a better spot for relaxing.

Things to do

Your chance to channel your inner Captain Jack Sparrow

The beaches and islands are the top draw of Mustique. Macaroni and Lagoon beaches are two of the most popular on the island, depending on whether you're looking for shade or sun. Be sure to opt for an island cruise that takes you to the marine conservation park at Tobago Cays, which served as the spot where Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow was marooned in The Pirates of the Caribbean (bring your own rum). For a unique sight, check out the Bamboo Church, made entirely of bamboo and hidden among trees. Of course, save some time for the spas.


Tennis, anyone? Or the spa, if you'd prefer

You'll find an equal balance of activity and pampering at your Mustique vacation rental. After playing a few matches at the Mustique Tennis Club, you can unwind with a luxurious treatment at one of the many spas in the area. The crystal clear waters are great for swimming, scuba diving, or snorkeling with turtles. Sailing and fishing charters leave regularly, while kite surfing is popular closer to land. If you want to explore farther afield on the island, horseback is one of the best ways to do it.


Sunscreen is a must-have for a Mustique trip

Welcome to the tropics, where it's always hot and humid. You can feel free to pack light when you head to your Mustique vacation rental, because the high temperatures are in the 70s all year long, and the seawaters are even warmer. Lows dip only into the 70s year round, so leave those winter coats at home. Things stay dry and sunny from January to May. After that the rains start, and continue off and on until the end of the year. The fall brings the possibility of hurricanes, especially in September and October.

Natural features

A landscape so pretty, you'll never want to leave

Mustique is the very definition of the tropics, with glittering sand beaches, jewel-colored waters, and swaying palm trees everywhere you look. The city sits on a series of gently rolling hills, offering stunning sea views from many places around town. The waters and islands offshore are home to an abundance of marine life, including tropical fish, sea turtles, and coral reefs. The lush green interior is a great place to encounter herons and tortoises. While the nature is stunning, you'll still find all the creature comforts you need in town.
