Christmas in the Grenadines

Experience an unforgettable Christmas with an exceptional itinerary to the southern West Indies!

From Pointe à Pitre, you will set sail aboard Le Ponant for a 10-day cruise under the Caribbean sun.

Your cruise will start with a stopover in the Les Saintes archipelago, home to one of the most beautiful bays in the world: Les Saintes Bay.

show reverse itinerary

Day 2 - LES SAINTES
It was during the feast of All Saints in 1493 that Christopher Columbus discovered this archipelago of 9 islands that he named “The Saints”. Today, only two of them are inhabited. Terre de Haut, in the east, is overlooked by the Morne Mire. At the summit stands fort Napoleon paying homage to the islands’ history. Locate in the heart of the botanical garden shared by iguanas and cacti, there is an exceptional view of the baie des Saintes, one of the most beautiful in the world. On Terre-de-Bas, you’ll be charmed by the authenticity of the village of Petites-Anses. Off the coast of the “Saints” archipelago, traditional fishing vessels sprinkle the blue seas of the Caribbean. Don’t turn down a coconut “tourment d’amour”.
Day 3 - MARIGOT & SOUFRIÈRE
Nestled in the crook of a breath-taking bay, the former capital of Saint Lucia is brimming with attractions. It is famous for its proximity with the emblematic volcanic spires knows as the Pitons, which form the backdrop and are a UNESCO listed World Heritage site. Soufrière will also win you over with its authentic Creole charm and warm friendly atmosphere. In Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens, you can make the most of the curative virtues of the natural mineral baths.
Day 4 - CANOUAN ISLAND

Day 5 - MAYERO
Day 6 - SAINT GEORGE'S
Day 7 - CARRIACOU & CHATHAM BAY, UNION
Belonging to the Grenadines, archipelago, Carriacou Island unfurls its sumptuous coat of green at the gates of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. This land of rolling green contrasts, bordered by splendid immaculate beaches, is certainly one of the most beautiful of the West Indies. This appropriately named beach of Paradise, located on the south-west coast won’t leave you indifferent, just like the rest of the island’s natural treasures. Bathed in the translucent waters, this long stretch of white sand is an invitation to chilling out in an idyllic setting where you can soak up the pleasures of the sea. Deserted bays, long stretches of golden sand, turquoise waters and endless coral reefs – Union Island is without a doubt one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. Overlooked by soaring peaks, this strange little strip of land owes its nickname of “the Tahiti of the West Indies” to its volcanic silhouette and its large swathes of greenery. When you call here, you will discover what the locals consider to be “the best-kept secret in the Grenadines” -Chatham Bay. Surrounded by hills and valleys carpeted in tropical rainforest, sheltering many sea turtles, this delightful half-moon of sand is, each day, the setting for the tireless ballet of the numerous pelicans who inhabit the island.
Day 8 - CHATHAM BAY, UNION & TOBAGO CAYES
Scattered between Saint-Vincent and Grenada, the Tobago Cays include 5 little islands. Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tabac and Jamesby. This rosary of Grenadine islands, an archipelago in the southern West Indies, are included in a programme for protecting wildlife. There is some outstanding marine fauna to be seen in these turquoise lagoons. Girded and united by a coral reef, these secluded islands are like paradise, whether you want to dive or sail or just soak up the sun, the experience is like nothing on earth.
Day 9 - BEQUIA
In the heart of the Caribbean sea, the island of Bequia stretches into the heart of the Grenadines. This secluded land, bly attached to its age-old tradition of whale hunting, has kept a cachet that will grab your attention. You’ll love the lively atmosphere in Port Elizabeth, the island’s main village. Between tropical forest, lush meadows and long stretches of white sand, Bequia provides a natural setting conducive for beautiful walks, as well as the joys of the beach.
Day 10 - FORT DE FRANCE
Located on the western coast of Martinique, Fort-de-France will amaze you by the splendour of its bay, a magnificent cut-out in the coastline, considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. At the harbour mouth, on its strip of land, fort Saint-Louis overlooks the capital city of Martinique. If you climb up to it, you can see some breath-taking views. Saint Louis Cathedral and the Schoelcher library bear witness to a secular history, intimately linked to the island’s story. Why not try some fresh coconut at the colourful Grand Marché. Two really pleasant places you can take a breather in, right in the heart of the city, are the garden of Balata and the Aimé Césaire park.
