Bridgetown to Bridgetown, Barbados

March 14th to March 24th, 2016
Voyage SCII – 1607

Bridgetown

More than 300 years of British rule have left their mark. The whole of Bridgetown, Barbados’ historic centre, with its colonial architecture surrounding Trafalgar Square, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gentle green hilly countryside and endless fields of sugar cane characterise the island’s landscape. Old colonial houses are reminders of the high life of the plantation owners, while innumerable colourful chattel houses are evidence of their workers’ “moveable property”. The sweeping coastline is a picture postcard of fine sandy beaches and turquoise sea surrounded by colourful coral reefs.

Man-O-War Bay / Tobago

The small fishing village of Charlotteville is situated in Tobago’s idyllic Man-O-War Bay and can only be reached by land via a steep road which cuts through the rainforest. With the ship anchored in the town’s picturesque bay, you will have plenty of time to discover the island’s diverse birdlife or to plunge into the emerald-green waters.

Tobago Cays

A unique feature of the Tobago Cays is its unspoilt coral reef, known as the “Horseshoe Reef” due to its shape. It keeps the Atlantic swells at bay and is the perfect place for snorkeling. Once back on dry land, you will be treated to a beach barbecue with culinary specialties.

Chatham Bay / Union Island

Right in the south of the Grenadines are Union Island and the Tobago Cays. Union Island was given the evocative name “the Tahiti of the West Indies” thanks to its volcanic silhouette. Four small uninhabited islands, surrounded by a protective horseshoe-shaped coral reef, form the Tobago Cays. The Horseshoe Reef holds the Atlantic swell at bay and its unique animal and plant life make it an ideal place for snorkelling. The lagoon between the islets shimmers in all shades from turquoise through to emerald green and invites you to take a dip at the fantastic beaches.

Soufrière

Two famous volcanic cones are indisputably the emblem of St Lucia and have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Gros and Petit Piton tower over the southern, windward side of the island and, in Soufrière, seem close enough to touch. The volcanoes have in fact long been extinct, but the sulphur springs demonstrate the power of the earth’s core and still bubble up. In the Botanical Gardens, natural abundance is combined with artistic arrangements to create a colourful tropical paradise. Some people claim that Josephine, who later became Napoleon’s wife, used to bathe in the little pool in the garden.

Cabrits

Dominica, nicknamed the “Nature Isle” of the Caribbean, is one of the most untouched of the Windward Islands. It boasts some of the highest mountains in the Lesser Antilles, as well as many beautiful national parks. Its interior is characterised by thick virgin forest, where rivers plunge into the depths and tiny streams wind through the jungle. Two extinct volcanoes are at the centre of the Cabrits National Park and, recaptured by nature, the former strategically important Fort Stanley appears like a picturesque backdrop in the heart of the jungle.

Gustavia / St Barthélemy

St Barthélemy, affectionately known as St Barths by most, had already had many “owners” before the Lesser Antilles were acquired by France in 1877. When the first estate was acquired by the banker David Rockefeller in 1957, the island’s future was finally sealed. It became a refuge for the international jet set and an elegant holiday paradise for many Hollywood stars. For over 40 years, St Barths has cultivated a luxurious lifestyle with a Caribbean laissez-faire approach. You can stroll through the charming main town of Gustavia, whose beautifully restored houses and colonial facades look out over the sea with its elegant superyachts, browse in the shops for precious items, or enjoy a sundowner in the picturesque harbour surrounded by clusters of high class bars and restaurants.

Terre-de-Haut / Îles des Saintes

Îles des Saintes is a small archipelago which was disputed for a long time until it finally became French in 1816. In the charming main town of Terre-de-Haut, you can take a delightful stroll along the waterside promenade. Boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants invite you to browse and spend some time here. The ‘savoir vivre’ takes place against a backdrop lit up in all the pastel shades of the Caribbean. Fort Napoleon is set high above the bay and your climb up to it is rewarded by a spectacular panoramic view. On the other side of the island, the Plage de Pompierre invites you to enjoy a dip in the sea and sunbathe on the beach
