Calliagua Bay is located on the southern end of St. Vincent Island, which is a part of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines island chain. St. Vincent is the northernmost and largest of all the islands in the group. Calliagua Bay is home to a few of the more popular yachting destinations and anchorages on St. Vincent, two of those being Young Island Cut and Blue Lagoon.
Young Island Cut is located about a half-mile west of Blue Lagoon tucked just behind Young Island. It is open on both ends, but affords good protection from most directions. Although Blue Lagoon is open to the south and west, it is protected by a large reef that surrounds the mooring fields, anchorage, and marinas here.
Young Island Cut runs through the middle of the image above, with anchorage located behind the (Youngs Island) island at the top of the image. Note the long shoal extending south on the west (right) side of Calliagua Bay and give it plenty of room when navigating Young Island Cut.
Young Island Cut can be entered from either the south or west via two approaches on either side of Youngs Island. The south entrance is through Calliagua Bay near Blue Lagoon. The western entrance is located north of Young Island between Young Island and Indian Bay.
