This lovely, hourglass-shaped strand is really 2 strands -- one on the calmer bay side, the other on the more arresting windward site of the sleepy island of mayreau (pop. 300) in the grenadines. It's pretty quiet on 1.5-square-mile mayreau, but if you must a just desert-island feel, visit even tinier mopion -- just bring an umbrella, because there's no shade on this beautiful, much-photographed speck of sand in the caribbean. The tobago keys, just offshore, are a mecca for scuba diving and snorkeling.
The saltwhistle bay assosication, the island's only upscale resort, proffers you a choosing of 10 suites plus the relaxs of a bar and restaurant, or you can stay at the posh private-island petit st. Vincent resort and daytrip over to mayreau.
