The Grenadines are well-known as a winter charter destination, but they can be great in the summertime too. Temperatures stay pretty much the same year-round, with daytime highs in the mid-80s and nighttime lows in the 70s. The only difference at this time of year is that it’s the rainy season–but even that doesn’t usually mean a total washout.
I’ve been to the Grenadines during the summer, and it was fantastic. I snapped the photograph at right on Bequia, one of the islands that can be part of any charter itinerary. The only difference I saw in the Grenadines from the winter months, aside from a few rainy mornings, was that the anchorages were like this one in Bequia–a lot less crowded. (And I see that as a plus!)
