St. Patrick’s day is a day with many green traditions - green beer, green shirts, green clovers, just to name a few. Why not celebrate by dreaming about the green islands you may encounter on your next Moorings charter?
Cayo Lobo, Puerto Rico
This small uninhabited island is a gleaming emerald you’ll pass on your way to Culebra in the Spanish Virgin Islands. Located just to the west of Culebra, Cayo Lobo is a great day stop for lunch in picturesque surroundings. Not only is this little “cayo” gorgeous, but it is also an excellent spot for snorkeling and diving.
The Pitons of St. Lucia
These famous peaks called the “Pitons” in St. Lucia call to mind visions of Buccaneers and Caribbean adventure. Petit Piton and Gros Piton are eye candy for those cruising near the small town of Soufriére. The waters around the Pitons are sure to be the highlight of any St. Lucia yacht charter.
Khao Phing Kan, Thailand
This isle, also known as James Bond Island for being featured in “The Man with the Golden Gun,” is located north of Phuket and west of Krabi Province. Exploring the gorgeous caves by kayak should definitely be on your to-do list.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
There isn’t anything in the world quite like exploring the lagoons in the crystalline waters of Bora Bora. Whether you’re snorkeling with Manta Rays, exploring coral gardens or shopping for Tahitian Black Pearls, Bora-Bora will delight one and all.
Norman Island, British Virgin Islands
When Robert Louis Stevenson wrote Treasure Island, Norman Island is what he used as inspiration. From Pirate’s Bight to Willy T’s, this excellent anchorage is full of good food and good times.
