Island Activities on Mustique, exclusive private island in St Vincent & the Grenadines

Things to Do

Experience Mustique… do as much or as little as you wish…

Watersports

There is an extensive range of watersports available on the island from scuba diving to snorkeling, and windsurfing to Hobie Cat sailing. Visit our well stocked Watersports Centre located on Endeavour Bay where you can choose from boogie boards and windsurfers, stand up paddle boards or a glass bottom kayak to explore the reefs beneath the sea. The equipment can even be dropped off at your favourite beach.

Swimming & Beachcombing

There are many beaches to choose from on Mustique; Macaroni and Simplicity beaches situated on the north easterly side of the island offer more swell providing excellent surfing and body boarding conditions, whilst Lagoon, Gelliceaux and Endeavour Bay beaches on the south westerly aspect of the island offer calmer waters more suited to snorkeling and paddle boarding and are perfect for family swimming and picnicking.

Picnics & Barbeques

Beach picnics are a huge part of life on Mustique. There are a number of dedicated areas nestled near the beaches or the tropical shoreline around the island where the hotel staff can prepare and set up a picnic for you.

Visiting Neighbouring islands

Day trips visiting neighbouring islands are available by private charter or as part of an organised trip with options to snorkel, fish and to lunch on another island.

Visit the stunning marine conservation park at Tobago Cays, a pristine group of uninhabited islands where you can picnic, before swimming with the hawksbill turtles on the reef. You can also explore the neighbouring islands of Bequia, Canouan, Palm, Union and Petit St. Vincent too.

Scuba Diving

Mustique offers some of the best scuba diving in the Caribbean. With a dedicated team of professional PADI instructors and dive masters, and the latest dive equipment, we cater for beginners through to experienced divers.

Sailing

The waters around Mustique are renowned for their fabulous sailing conditions. Beginners and children can take lessons in the Hobie Cats in Endeavour Bay whilst more experienced sailors can charter a range of Schooners and Catamarans.

Fishing

The seas around Mustique offer a host of different species from salt water salmon and mackerel, jack, yellowtail snapper and barracuda, to deep-sea tuna, dorado (mahi-mahi), wahoo, sailfish and marlin. Fishing trips can be arranged with our resident island fishermen who will provide the necessary boat and tackle. The island’s fish reserves are closely monitored as part of the island’s commitment to conservation and we work with the local fishermen to maintain a sustainable fishing programme. Please contact the Activities Office for more information and to make a booking.

Tennis

The Mustique Tennis Club is one of the most important community hubs on the island, loved by owners, guests and island residents alike.

There are six floodlit omni-courts. Use of the tennis courts is complimentary. A range of tennis lessons and courses for all ages are available with our resident tennis coach, including daily drop-in games for those looking for social match play, with seasonal camps and tournaments in high season.

Racquets, whites and tennis balls are available for purchase or hire at the Tennis Club Shop.

Equestrian Centre

Explore Mustique on horseback, trekking up into the hills to enjoy the many wonderful views or gallop through the surf on a choice of deserted beaches. There are horses and ponies to suit all levels of experience and group or private lessons can be arranged. The very popular three-day pony camps for children are held throughout the year giving them the chance to learn about stable management and the daily care of their ponies.

Golf

The neighbouring island of Canouan offers excellent golf facilities with an award-winning championship golf course designed by Jim Fazio. This is a golfer’s heaven with the dramatic coastal location creating a stunning and challenging course. Details of boat or plane transfers to Canouan are available on request.

For Children

Mustique is a haven for children of all ages. The island’s quiet nature and security allows teenagers to roam safely and spend time with newfound friends allowing parents to relax and unwind in confidence. For very young children there are nannies and child minders available to give parents some time to themselves.

Mustique has a dedicated Activities team who arrange an array of fun activities and events, such as drive in movie night, tennis, pony camp, beach picnics and treasure hunts, and kite flying competitions, which make the island of Mustique a blissful retreat for anyone looking for the perfect family escape.

Hiking Trails

The hiking trails on Mustique are wonderfully varied.

Pick up a map and discover the extraordinary diversity in the island’s topography and vegetation. Early morning guided hikes are the perfect time to meet the island’s more reticent wildlife too. Our motto is to “Take only pictures, leave only footprints.”
