It’s one of the Caribbean’s most intoxicating destinations: St Vincent the Grenadines, the collection of green-hilled islands and cays at the edge of the Southern Caribbean.
It’s a place that has long been a favorite for sailors and yachters drawn to sparkling turquoise waters, untouched beaches and a taste of the old Caribbean.
In recent years, the Grenadines have found particular renowned for their private island destinations, from Canouan, now home its very own Mandarin Oriental, to the legendary Palm Island.
And now there’s another Grenadine on the real estate market: Isle a Quatre.
The island, which is currently an uninhabited marine reserve, is listed for sale for $53,950,046.
The 376-acre island is about five miles west of tony Mustique and just 1.5 miles south of the charming island of Bequia, both of which have their own airports. (The destination is easier to reach than ever before thanks to the launch of new nonstop flights from North America to St Vincent).
The island rises to a peak of 450 feet at its “Look-Out” point, with both white and golden sand beaches.
While it’s primed for an individual buyer to fulfill his or her ultimate castaway fantasies, it’s also ready to be developed.
Indeed, the purchase comes with an approved plan for a resort development that includes 50 luxury villas, a marina, a boutique hotel and a restaurant.
