Best Travel Moments of 2013

Sailing in the Grenadines with Petit St. Vincent 
Chartering this private island’s aptly named Beauty, a 50-foot sailboat that was built by its captain, is the best of both worlds. A day of being buffeted by wind and waves, but nights back on land in air-conditioned rooms with big comfortable beds and oversize hot showers. The day trip, though, is the stuff of sailing fantasy, riding the winds to the Tobago Cays, snorkeling with turtles and clambering back on board for a delectable lunch of grilled lobster tails and potent rum punch.

Private Caribbean Islands

December 2013 Forgo the highly traveled favorites for more intimate—dare we say secret?—isles.

The Caribbean—home to cerulean waters, vibrant coral reefs and sugar-white beaches—is a near-perfect vacation destination. There is just one problem: Everyone you know wants to go there.

How to lose the crowds when seeking an ideal tropical getaway? Forget well-traveled spots, where the sprawling hotels are thicker than coconut palms. If you really want to leave the only footprints in the sand, go to one of the Caribbean’s lesser-known islands.

How I Spent My Winter Vacation

November 2013 A trip into the wilds of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will transport
you back to your sleepaway camp days—minus the pottery class and drama club.


Slipping my breakfast order into a bamboo mailbox outside my bungalow, I hoist the yellow flag above it into the air and follow the sound of Gregory Peck’s voice as it floats up from the beach. Down at the shore, Monday movie night is in full swing, complete with buttery bowls of popcorn, canvas director’s chairs and whispering waiters delivering drink orders. Roman Holiday plays out on a projector screen that luffs in the breeze like a sail. A group of boaters who have anchored in the cove for the evening are giving a rousing rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”

Five More Things You Should Do in the Caribbean Before You Die

November 2013 Ride in a Mini Moke in the Grenadines

At Petit St. Vincent, a 115-acre private-island resort, guests are whisked between the beach and their ocean-view villas in a fleet of spiffy Mini Mokes. The iconic beach buggies were originally made in England in the '60s but production has long since stopped. So riding around in one of PSV's fleet is a unique experience, made even more so when you consider that the resort actually manufactures the vehicles themselves!

September 2013 There's a gloriously 'unplugged' feel about Petit St. Vincent. It was substantiously spruced up by new owners in 2011, but regulars say little of its previous spirit has been lost. While the whole vibe is rustic, it's as exclusive as nearby Mustique with a celebrety clientele to match, so it's actually a highly slick operation.

EVINS on the road: 3 most impressive boutique hotels

August 2013 Petit St. Vincent, or PSV to its loyalists, is a great example of "traditional" luxury done right. Privacy is also of the utmost concern for affluent consumers today. Since PSV's tagline is "a private resort for private people" (you can literally rent out the entire island), this kind of intimacy is not one that many guests get to experience, which makes it unforgettable.
