Fodor's Expert Review Anchorage Yacht Club

Clifton, Union Island, VC0470, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

The popular AYC offers convenient, inexpensive landside accommodations to boaters looking for a night or two on dry land, as well as to those beginning or ending a sailing vacation through the Grenadines. For those who remember the "old" and rather ordinary AYC, the entire hotel—including all accommodations—was completely refurbished in 2013. Standard rooms in the main building, overlooking the marina, are attractive and convenient; individual cottages are scattered along a quiet, sandy beach. Transportation to and from the airport, which is just next door, is provided. For the most active guests, a kitesurfing center is situated on the property with lessons for novices and equipment rental for those with experience. The AYC restaurant is open for all-day dining but is busiest in the evening, when boaters come ashore for dinner. An eye-catcher is the shark pool, which is adjacent to the dock and home to a half-dozen or more nurse sharks.
