The Caribbean island of Mustique is a privately owned 1,400-acre land in St. Vincent and the Grenadines; made famous by Princess Margaret – who was gifted 10 acres of wild land in the 60s- and its Oliver Messel-decorated villas, modern-day Mustique has lost none of its charm and exclusivity.
Macaroni beach is one of the island’s best, and most of the time you’ll be able to enjoy its stunning views on your own: most of Mustique’s wealthy residents and visitors prefer to spend their time in their Hollywood-style villas and private beaches.. who are we to blame them?
The white sand of Macaroni beach is as fine as talcum powder and the salty breeze is as warm as the water. The only sounds are those of the tree frogs and crickets in the surrounding hills, and the gentle swoosh of lapping waves. This really could be paradise.
HOW TO GET THERE: there are frequent 45 minutes charter flights from Barbados or St.Lucia. For availability and reservations please contact email@example.com.
