Tropic Breeze were proud sponsors the Autumn Series of the Yealm Yacht Club this year, our local club, which is just a stone’s throw from our offices in Devon. The series ran from 5th September to 17th October, and they were lucky enough to have some amazing weather for the last race of the series!
Sailing is something that has always been close to our hearts at Tropic Breeze, and there is arguably no better place to sail than the Caribbean. Many try their hand at sailing for the first time in the Caribbean as the calm turquoise waters are so inviting, and it is also a firm favourite with experienced sailors.
If you are looking for an island with plenty to offer in terms of exciting sailing experiences, then Grenada is a great option. Hotels such as Spice Island Beach Resort and Mount Cinnamon offer Hobie Cat sailing directly from the beach, and it is hard to think of a more amazing spot to sail than along the famous Grand Anse Beach.
Guests staying at Calabash Grenada can enjoy Hobie Cat sailing from their sheltered beach. Calabash also offer an exclusive island hopping experience for their guests, which is a fantastic way to see some stunning, uninhabited islands around the coast of Grenada.
For a truly unique holiday experience, why not charter a fully crewed or skippered yacht? Booking a yacht charter gives you the flexibility to go where you please and enjoy a luxurious holiday experience like no other. Explore the pristine beaches and see the stunning marine life around Grenada’s coastline before sailing on to nearby islands such as Union, Tobago Cays, Mustique, Bequia, St Vincent.

Grenada is known as the ‘Spice island’ of the Caribbean due to the fragrant scent of the nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and vanilla produced on the island. But did you know that Grenada is also home to five chocolate factories? Chocolate is such an important part of the island’s culture and traditions that it even has a dedicated festival – The Chocolate Fest – to celebrate all things chocolate!
Grenada is probably best known as the home of Grand Anse Beach – a beautiful 2 mile stretch of classically Caribbean palm fringed shore and one of the world’s most famous beaches. With a superb range of hotels and resorts, ranging from five star all inclusive luxury to boutique family run hotels, it is easy to see why the island is so popular with those looking for sun, sea and sand. But there is so much more to Grenada than its stunning beaches, and we’d like to share our recommendations with you on how to get the most out of your next holiday to this tropic paradise!
Tropic Breeze founder, Jo Plummer, has been on the move again – this time staying at the rustic all-inclusive adult-only resort, COCOS Hotel. Antigua is an increasingly popular Caribbean holiday destination known for having 365 beaches, one for each day of the year. Visitors to the island can explore the stunning coastline, soak up the local history and culture or take part in water sports such as sailing, which is particularly popular thanks to the superb weather conditions.
Tropic Breeze founder, Jo Plummer, recently travelled to St Lucia, spending a few nights at Anse Chastanet, a very unique and individually styled resort with a real emphasis on the natural beauty of the island and the surrounding landscape – a perfect escape. She also visited Jade Mountain, it’s sister resort with striking architecture and luxurious suites. The two resorts offer breathtaking views over the Caribbean Sea and the Pitons.
Tropic Breeze founder, Jo Plummer, recently spent a few days at St Lucia’s world class all inclusive lifestyle resort – BodyHoliday. The mantra of “give us your body for a week and we’ll give you back your mind” underpins the resort’s schedule of activities combined with a daily spa treatment … you really can choose to be as active or as relaxed as you please, particularly with the beach and Caribbean Sea temptingly set out before you.
Tropic Breeze prides itself on being able to offer first hand advice from personal experience, therefore, it would go against the business model to send clients anywhere without us fully understanding how COVID19 will impact the holidays we are recommending. We are extremely excited to confirm that Mark flew out to Barbados earlier this month to visit a number of hotels and restaurants, and has updated the team in order to be able to offer the best travel advice.
The travel industry has taken a big hit through 2020 which has put a lot of our holiday plans on hold. Whilst we all keep an eye out for last minute bargains, there are actually far more benefits if you book in advance …
St Lucia is an outstanding holiday destination which is perfect for a long, relaxing stay or as part of a Caribbean island hopping itinerary. Renowned for its dramatic landscape of volcanic peaks, mountainous terrain and lush tropical scenery combined with the abundance of activities available for all ages, the island appeals to adrenaline junkies, families, honeymooners and those looking to lay on a beach sipping rum punch.
Are you thinking of celebrating that special birthday, anniversary or wedding abroad? Searching for a magical place to propose, get married or renew your vows? Rendezvous in St Lucia may be exactly what you are looking for!
