Surrounded by the crystal blue waters of the West Indies, it is no wonder that many of the things to do in Mustique center on the island’s beach life. From sailing to scuba diving to snorkeling, sea excursions are a big draw to those traveling to Mustique. Are you more of a land mammal? The island offers picnics and luxurious beach facilities to island guests.

Still wondering what to do on Mustique? Royals love their horses so its no wonder the island is equipped with a comprehensive equestrian facility. From sunset beach treks to private horseback riding lessons, to yoga on horseback, there is something to suit everyone from the novice to the world-class dressage champion.

For those looking for a relaxing retreat, there are plenty of things to do in Mustique. The Spa at the Cotton House offers a catalog of services designed to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Those looking for some retail therapy should stop by the Pink House, the chic island boutique selling hand painted and designer clothing.

For the ultimate in island chic, stop by Lotty Bunbury’s new boutique. In addition to her caftans and pareus—staples for any Mustique wardrobe—the pastel gingerbread cottage also carries designs by other part-time residents, including Elle McPherson and Elizabeth Hurley.
